This video tutorial provides an introduction to the concept of volume in geometry. The instructor explains that volume is the amount of space an object takes up. For example, the amount of space available for storage inside a box is the volume of that box.
Volume is always measured in cubic units and involves calculations that include the three dimensions of length, width and height.
To illustrate the concept, the instructor uses various calculations based on the hypothetical case of a manufacturer who must figure out the size of the boxes he will need to ship his products.
