# Level 5-6 Shapes - Volume and Capacity

In KS3 Maths you'll spend a lot of time looking at shapes and their properties, 2-Dimensional shapes, polygons, have areas which can be worked out. But 3-Dimensional shapes, polyhedrons, have another property - their volume or capacity.

In a similar way to how 2-D shapes cover an area, 3-D shapes contain a volume. This is their capacity, or how much three-dimensional space the shape occupies or contains. The volume of a container is generally understood to be the capacity such as the amount of fluid that the container could hold. Think of a 2 litre bottle of water. It contains a volume or capacity of 2 litres or 2,000cm^{3}.

So, the volume of a 3-D shape is how much space it takes to fill it. Get your fill of volume and capacity with the following quiz. Take your time and be sure to consider your answers before choosing which ones are correct. Good luck!
