### What are you finding if you measure the space that a solid figure occupies?

You are finding the volume of the solid figure.
To find the volume of a solid figure, depending on the size of
the object, you can use a graduated cylinder. You can fill the
cylinder up to x amount of water and then measure the amount
after dropping the solid into the water, and then subtract the
amount before, from the amount after, to get the volume of a solid.
You can also use simple mathematics to figure the volume of the
solid. There are different formulas for calculating volume for
different types of solid figures.
