### Area vs. Volume

The area is space covered by an object whereas the volume is the capacity of an object. Area basically counts only two dimensions of an object. Whereas, the volume includes all the three major dimensions. When we talk about the area, it will give an objects outer occupied space whereas volume means the inner capacity an object can hold. For example, in case of a rectangular box, when it comes to the area, we will only include two dimensions, width, and length of the object whereas when it comes to volume, we may include all the three dimensions i.e. length, width, and height. A point to remember here is that the formulas for the area and volume vary from figure to figure depending upon its shape.

### What is the Area?

The area is the two-dimensional measurement of an object. The area basically demonstrates the 2D part of an object covering the area. There are different methods to calculate the area for a different shape. In our daily lives, we calculate the area for several purposes. It goes from a carpet in a room to the car in a garage. We tend to calculate the area for the efficient settlement of our objects. If the area of a room is unknown, it is impossible to take a carpet that may fit in exactly. Apart from our daily lives the term area is also widely used in other fields either it is engineering or it is arts. The area is calculated for plain figures, unlike volume. The area helps to determine how many squares will fit in a particular solid figure. The System International (S.I) unit for area is meter per square, which is denoted as ‘m^{2}’. Calculation of area varies from shape to shape. Following are some formulas for calculation of some different shapes.

### What is the Volume?

Volume is the three-dimensional calculation of an object. It is the space with the three dimensions. In other words, the volume can also be called the capacity of the object. For example, the amount of water a bottle can hold is its volume. The system international unit for the volume is m^{3}. Alike area the formula for volume changes with the change in the shape of the object. Following are some formulas for a few shapes.
