# What is volume capacity and mass?

## What is volume capacity and mass?

Capacity refers to the amount a container can hold and is usually associated with liquid. Common capacity measurements are millilitres and litres. 1,000 millilitres = 1 litre.

## Whats the difference between mass and capacity?

Mass is the amount of matter an object contains, while volume is how much space it takes up. Example: A bowling ball and a basketball are about the same volume as each other, but the bowling ball has much more mass.

## Does capacity mean volume?

Volume is the amount of space a container or object occupies. Capacity is the amount of water required to fill the fish tank (ml or L). Volume is the space the tank and water take up.

## How do you calculate volume capacity?

Rectangular Containers You find the volume V of a rectangular container by measuring its length (l), width (w) and height (h) and multiplying these quantities. You express the result in cubic units.

## Is volume and capacity the same?

Volume and capacity are properties of three-dimensional objects. Volume is the space that a three-dimensional object occupies or contains; capacity, on the other hand, is the property of a container and describes how much a container can hold.

## Is capacity an area or volume?

The capacity of a container is another word for the volume of material it will hold. It’s usually measured in liters or gallons. It isn’t the same as the volume the container would displace it you immersed it in water. The difference between these two quantities is the thickness of the container walls.

## Is mass equal to volume?

Density offers a convenient means of obtaining the mass of a body from its volume or vice versa; the mass is equal to the volume multiplied by the density (M = Vd), while the volume is equal to the mass divided by the density (V = M/d).

## Does mass affect volume?

The mass depends on the volume and, in turn, the volume depends on the mass. If we maintain the pressure and temperature of this gas and fill an object which can vary its volume, like a balloon, or a cylinder with a sliding end, the final volume depends directly on the amount of the gas that we inject.
