to find the volume of regular shaped objects is by getting the product of its length,width,and height.the formula is LxWxH

Measure all sides with a metric ruler or meter stick, then use the correct formula to find volume. For example, the formula for the volume of a cube is length x width x height.

To measure the volume of a regular shaped solid object use l x w x h or water displacement. The mass can be found using a Triple Beam Balance.

If the object in question is water proof, and small enough. You can measure the amount of displaced water when it is placed in a tank full of water, this may not work for a lot of things but it can help when attempting to measure some objects.

Measure the volume of the object which is same as the volume of the displaced liquid in which that sinks. And measure the mass of the same object from a weighing machine. then use density = mass/volume

Fill the object with water and pour it out into a graduated cylinder. This will give you the volume of any shaped container. If you want to find its displacement the opposite is needed. A tank of water. The water line is marked. The object is submerged and eureka you mark how high the water goes. Remove the object and measure how much water you have to add to the tank to reach the new line. That would be the displacement of your object. It is about the same as its' internal volume.

The units are the same for any object (for example, kilogram/m3). What changes is the methods you can use to measure it.

A ruler or other measuring instrument may be used to determine the dimensions of a regularly shaped abject, and the volume may then be calculated by applying the dimensions to the applicable formula.

If its regular (geometric shaped) you could just measure it with a ruler using the formula for the shape in question. Irregular shaped objects can be submerged in water. The difference in the water level before and after submersion equals the volume of the object.length X width X height

With an eureca can yiu can measure the volume of an unregular shaped object :)
