## Definition of Cubic Unit

Volume of the solids is measured in Cubic Units.

• A milliliter is equivalent to one cubic centimeter.
• One liter is equivalent to one cubic decimeter.
• One kiloliter is equivalent to one cubic meter.

### Example of Cubic Unit

The given figure is a cube. The length of each side of the cube is 1 centimeter, so its volume is 1 cubic centimeter.

A. Figure 1
B. Figure 2
C. Figure 3
D. Figure 4

### Solution:

Step 1: Volume of the rectangular solid = l × w × h
Step 2: For Figure 1, Volume V = 6 × 3 × 4 = 72 cubic units
Step 3: For Figure 2, Volume V = 5 × 3 × 4 = 60 cubic units
Step 4: For Figure 3, Volume V = 4 × 3 × 5 = 60 cubic units
Step 5: For Figure 4, Volume V = 2 × 4 × 4 = 32 cubic units
Step 6: Hence, Figure 4 represents a solid that has a volume of 32 cubic units.
