Lesson 1: Volume with unit cubes

# Measuring volume with unit cubes

Explore the concept of volume, emphasizing that it's a measure of how much space something takes up. Practice the idea of measuring volume in cubic units, like cubic feet or cubic inches, by counting the number of unit cubes that fit into a 3D shape. Created by Sal Khan.

• If the radius of the base of right circular cylinder is halved. keeping the height same. what is the ratio of the volume of the reduced cylinder to that of the original.
• upvote if you like ice cream or video games
• How many cubes are in 1 layer
• Depends. If it a 6 by 6 by 6, it would be 36 in one layer
• are there any other videos on this?
:)
• Yes, there are many other videos on this
• I used to think volume is hard but all you have to do is multiply.
• So in a 3d world when you try to solve a problem, remember to also think about the parts you cannot see, like the back, bottom, and sometimes the sides is what you should also think when trying to solve problems like these.
