To know the volume of a solid body by informal measurement

Situation 1

Venba’s uncle gave her a sweet box. The sweet box contains 10 pieces of soan papdi. Now, we can tell that the capacity of the sweet box is 10 soan papdi. So, we can tell that the volume of that sweet box is the space occupied by 10 pieces of soan papdi.

Situation 2

Kuralini arranged her books in her school bag. She kept five books in her bag. Hence, we can say that the capacity of the bag is 5 books.

Here, 5 books occupy the space in one bag.

The volume of 5 books is one bag.

The volume of 1 book is 1/5th of a school bag.

Capacity of a container is the atmost quantity of an item the container can hold.

Volume of a solid is the space occupied by the solid.
