Guidelines to follow when using the volume of a box calculator

Just enter the length, the width, and the height of the box and hit the calculate button.

Recall that the formula to get the volume of a box is

V = l × w × h

l is the length

w is the width

h is the height

Therefore, the volume depends on the size of l, w, and h . So just enter the size of l, w, and h in the calculator to get the volume.

The calculator will only accept positive value for the length, the width, and the height since a distance cannot be negative. If you enter a negative number, it will prompt you to enter a valid number.

Enter the length, width and height without the unit. For example, if your length is 2 cm, enter 2.

Then, just put cm3 next to the answer
