Volume of a Prism  
 
The volume V of any right prism is the product of B, the area of the base, and the height h of the prism.

Formula: V = Bh
 
Volume of a Pyramid
 
The volume V of any pyramid with height h and a base with area B is equal to one-third the product of the height and the area of the base.

Formula: V = (1/3)Bh
  
  
 
Volume of a Cylinder
 
The volume V of any cylinder with radius r and height h is equal to the product of the area of a base and the height.

Formula: V = (PI)r2
 
Volume of a Cone
 
The volume V of any cone with radius r and height h is equal to one-third the product of the height and the area of the base.

Formula: V = (1/3)(PI)r2h
 
Volume of a Sphere
 
The volume V for any sphere with radius r is equal to four-thirds times the product of PI and the cube of the radius.
 
Volume Formula: V = (4/3)(PI)r3
