It depends on the shape of the container. For example: the volume of a container that is shaped like a cube (or a cuboid) would be calculated by simply multiplying the length, width, and height of the container together. For a cylinder, you would use the formula: pi × radius^2 × height.

Fill it with water. Then carefully pour all the water into a graduate container and read off the volume form the markings on the latter.
