Volume of Irregular Shape







The volume of irregular shape is calculated by number of blocks present in it.

Example 1:

Find the volume of the above shape considering that each side is of length 1unit.
Solution : Count the number of blocks.
1st layer = 5
2nd layer = 5
3rd layer = 2
4th layer = 2
5th layer = 2
6th layer = 2
∴ Volume = 5 + 5 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 18 cu.units.

Example 2:

Find the volume of the above shape considering that each side is of length 1unit.
Solution : Count the number of blocks.
1st layer = 4
2nd layer = 2
∴ Volume = 4 + 2 = 6 cu.units

Example 3:

Find the volume of the above shape considering that each side is of length 1unit.
Solution : Count the number of blocks.
1st layer = 1
2nd layer = 3
3rd layer = 4
4th layer = 6
∴ Volume = 1 + 3 + 4 + 6 = 14 cu.units.

Example 4:

Find the volume of the above shape considering that each side is of length 1unit.
Solution : Count the number of blocks.
1st layer = 5
2nd layer = 12
∴ Volume = 5 + 12 = 17 cu. Units.

Example 5:

Find the volume of the above shape considering that each side is of length 1unit.
Solution : Count the number of blocks.
1st layer = 1
2nd layer = 1
3rd layer = 1
4th layer = 4
∴ Volume = 1 + 1 + 1 + 4 = 7 cu. Units.
