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
What is the volume of a four-dimensional space called?
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?
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.
