This packet will explain and show how to find the volume of irregular solids.
This packet includes steps and diagrams to explain how to find the volume of irregular solids as well as examples and problems to do on your own.
If you need to review how to find the surface area of irregular shapes, please refer to the
1. Break the solid down into shapes whose volume you know how to calculate (like polygons,
cylinders, and cone).
2. Calculate the volume of the small shapes.
3. Add up all of the volumes to get the total volume of the shape.
