The volume of an object is a 3-dimensional measure of how much stuff fits inside of it- like how much soup fits in a can. The surface area is the 2-dimensional area that is required to make the object itself- like how much aluminum is used to make the can itself. We write volume in units cubed, and area in units squared. Here we'll go through a series of volume and surface area formulas for common solid shapes. These are formulas that you can find in any textbook or online, but you should also understand where they come from.
