Liquid Volume Definition Take the guesswork out of calculating liquid volume, and use our Liquid Volume Calculator. This calculator lets you input the needed information to quickly and accurately determine the volume of liquid a container can hold. Avoid overflows or half-filled containers by using our math calculator first to match the amount of liquid to the container.
What is liquid volume? Liquids, by definition, take the shape of their container. If you know the dimensions of a container, you can calculate the amount of liquid it will hold, which is the volume. This calculator is designed to determine the volume of liquids rectangular containers can hold. If you have a cylindrical container like a soda can or an ice cream cone shape, you need another calculator to find the volume of those shapes. Here are a few volume of shape calculators:
Cylinder Volume Calculator
Cone Volume Calculator
Cube Volume Calculator
Rectangular Prism Calculator
Sphere Volume Calculator
Who can use this calculator? Anyone can use this calculator for determining volume. Some instances when this calculator becomes useful include:
Pet owners to find out how much water their fish tank holds
Homeowners to know the volume of their rectangular swimming pool
Cooks to find the capacity of box-shaped food storage containers
Any time you have a rectangular container that must be filled with liquid and need to know the volume in liters
Information Needed When you need to determine the volume of liquid a container holds, you will need some information about the container. Use either a metric measuring tape or ruler to gather the required information. To use the calculator, input the following data:
Height in centimeters of the container
Width in centimeters of the container
Length in centimeters of the container
Getting and Using the Results Hit the calculate button and you will get the volume of the container in liters. This information may be printed out, if needed. Should you require the results in Imperial units you will need another calculator to convert from the metric liters to Imperial quarts or fluid ounces. Do not input data in inches or meters into the calculator, the results will not be accurate.
How Results are Determined Our calculator uses the standard formula to determine volume of a rectangular object. This formula is:
length x width x height = volume
This is only the volume in cubic centimeters, and does not indicate the amount of liquid. The second step our calculator uses is to divide the volume in cubic centimeters by 1000 to find the liquid volume in liters. You do not have to do anything except insert the required data. Both steps of the process are instantly carried out, and the final answer will be the number you need. You do not have to be a math major or remember complex formulas to use this simple calculator. Anyone can find the liquid volume of a container just with a few numbers and the click of a mouse.
