Finally we hope you would enjoy this blog!

MATH Phase 1.

Prior Knowledge Volume & Capacity

This is the Prior Knowledge of Volume and Capacity.



Capacity is a measure of how much a container can hold. Also the maximum amount or number that can be contained or accommodated .


Good there are a lot of people that doesn't know what is volume and they want to know . Then they killed their head looking for math definitions but I here have a form and a definition very simple that will be easy to understand .

Volume measures the space that matter occupies .Volume is measured in cubic units. The volume of a figure is the number of cubes required to fill it completely.

Difference between Volume and Capacity

Hear are the differences between volume and capacity

Capacity is how much can fit into something, . Volume is the amount of space that is taken up whether or not there is something in it or it is solid, expressed in cubic cm or m or km.
