The biggest impact I think of: Calculus is how people invented the formulas to get the volume and surface area of spheres/cones/pyramids.

What do you need the volume of? .... typically width x height x length ..... gazillions of formulas available for various other things (pyramids, cones, spheres, Rosie O'Donnell, etc.)

democritus calculated the volume of pyramids and cones

that would depend on the shape of the volume. for a box, it would be width * depth * height For a sphere it would be (4 * pi * radius^3) / 3 Pyramids, cones, and other shapes, of course, will have their own formulas.

Volume is the quantity of space within a closed boundary, or the space that a substance takes up. Formulas for volume vary by shape.

Specific Volume is the reciprocal of the Density :))

Obviously, the pyramids have a lot to do with triangles. To find the hight, length, width, volume, angle of ascent, and surface area of the pyramids, the egyptians had to use trigonometry.

There are different types of geometry formulas such as polygon properties, area formulas, volume formulas, surface area formulas, circle formulas, and perimeter formulas.

Volume = Length x Width x Height, for a cube and Density = Mass / Volume.

if you need to find the volume of the pyramid in rome

Three-dimensional ones, such as spheres, cubes, cuboids, pyramids and prisms.

Density = Mass / VolumeVolume equations : http://www.equationsheet.com/sheets/equations-24.html

Density = mass/volume Mass = (density) x (volume) Volume = mass/density

If you mean by the volume they describe, there is no difference. They are the exact same volume.

YES. 1.5 oz is 1.5 oz ! Where it may differ is in the volume.

A liquid has no defined shape, but has a defined volume. A gas has no defined shape and no defined volume.

A solid has a fixed volume and form. A liquid has a fixed volume but has the form of a container. A gas has not a fixed volume or form.

There are formulas for regular shapes. Not all shapes have formulas; for these you can fill them with liquid and measure or weigh the contents.

(1/3) * B * h B is the area of the Base, h is the height.

When volume is constant, the masses of two objects are in direct proportion to their densities.

I need an easy formulas for fining powder volume Powder volume is the space occupied by dry (lyophilized or freeze-dried) pharmaceuticals. powder volume = final volume - diluent volume
