This video shows a step by step procedure to finding volume of a rectangular prism.

We use the formula volume = length x width x height.

Notice because we use 3 measurements when we work out the volume of a 3D shape we end with an answer in cubic units (units^3).

We then look out how to work out the volume of composite objects - that is the volume of objects containing more than one shape.

This video has a particular focus to real world use of volume and uses measurement concepts.
