Volume of Solids

Part of the Problem Books in Mathematics book series (PBM)


In this chapter we present the concept of volume of a solid and compute the volumes of various of the solids studied so far. Cavalieri’s principle will turn to be a central tool for our exposition; in particular, we shall use it to compute the volume of a sphere of a given radius.
