• Volume is the total space contained in any object while circumference is the length of the outer periphery. For example volume of a sphere is 4/3*Pi*r^3 in cubic meters where as circumferece of a circle is 2*Pi*R which is in meters.

• C = pi*r^2 or C=pi*d

volume of a rectangular prism =

V = B*h

volume of a cube =

V=s^3

volume of a cylinder =

V = pi*r^2*h

• This is a vague question. Volume, circumference of what? A sphere? The circumference of a sphere of radius r is 2*pi*r. The volume of a sphere of radius r is V=(4/3)*pi*r^3. If you want to know more, then please elaborate.

• Volume- How much will fit in something( ex. How much water will fit in a cup) Circumference- the distance around something ( like when fitting a hat, they measure the circumference of your head)

• Circumference is the distance around a circle or sphere. it has linear measure (ft, in, cm etc)

Volume is the space something takes up or its capacity. it has cubic measure (in^3, ft^3, cm^3 etc or units with names just for volume (Litrers, Gals etc)

• volume is the amount of space confined within any kind of solid material, (i.e. sphere, cube, or anything with three dimensions).

Circumference relates to a circle; it is the total distance of around the circle, similar to a perimeter, when dealing with rectangle, square, triangle,etc.

• Of a sphere:

Volume=(4/3)pi*r^3

Cur. = pi* times the diameter =pi*d

=pi* times radius times 2 =pi*r2
