Volume

Explanation[edit]

A volume is a quantifier that quantifies a three-dimensional space taken up by a three-dimensional object. The volume has a derived SI unit from the SI unit of length, cubed asm3.

Frequently Asked Questions[edit]

What is the volume of a four-dimensional space called?[edit]

A four-dimensional volume would generally be called as hyper-volume and it would be an extension of the three-dimensional Euclidean space.

What is the volume occupied by elementary particles?[edit]

Though elementary particles like electrons and quarks have mass, the standard model comprehension of these particles indicate that these are point-like masses associated with a wave nature. Due to this, the uncertainty principle limits any precise observation of the structures of this elements. Hence, they are considered to be a point mass with zero volume.
