In this article, we’ll take a look at some volume word problems and their solutions. From calculating the volume of a rectangular box to a sphere with a given radius, we’ll show you how to approach these types of problems and give you step-by-step solutions.
Here are some volume word problems and their solutions.
1. A box has a length of 5 units, a width of 4 units, and a height of 3 units. What is the volume of the box?
Solution: The volume of the box can be calculated by multiplying its length, width, and height: 5 units * 4 units * 3 units = 60 cubic units.
You have a rectangular box that is 5 inches long, 4 inches wide, and 3 inches tall. What is the volume of the box?
Solution: The volume of the box can be calculated as 5 inches * 4 inches * 3 inches = 60 cubic inches.
2. A cylinder has a radius of 3 units and a height of 4 units. What is the volume of the cylinder?
Solution: The volume of the cylinder can be calculated using the formula: π * r^2 * h, where r is the radius and h is the height.
So, the volume of the cylinder can be calculated as π * 3^2 * 4 = 36π cubic units.
You have a cylinder with a radius of 2 feet and a height of 5 feet. What is the volume of the cylinder?
Solution: The volume of the cylinder can be calculated as π * 2^2 * 5 = 20π cubic feet.

A sphere has a radius of 4 units. What is the volume of the sphere?
Solution: The volume of the sphere can be calculated using the formula: (4/3) * π * r^3, where r is the radius.
So, the volume of the sphere can be calculated as (4/3) * π * 4^3 = (4/3) * π * 64 = 256π/3 cubic units.
You have a sphere with a radius of 3 inches. What is the volume of the sphere?
Solution: The volume of the sphere can be calculated as (4/3) * π * 3^3 = (4/3) * π * 27 = 36π cubic inches.
