# Volume

Volume[reg]
gives the volume of the three-dimensional region reg.

Volume[{x1,,xn},{s,smin,smax},{t,tmin,tmax},{u,umin,umax}]
gives the volume of the parametrized region whose Cartesian coordinates are functions of s, t, u.

Volume[{x1,,xn},{s,smin,smax},{t,tmin,tmax},{u,umin,umax},chart]
interprets the as coordinates in the specified coordinate chart.

## Details and OptionsDetails and Options

• A three-dimensional region can be embedded in any dimension greater than or equal to three.
• In Volume[x,{s,smin,smax},{t,tmin,tmax},{u,umin,umax}], if x is a scalar, Volume returns the volume of the parametric three-region .
• Coordinate charts in the fifth argument of Volume can be specified as triples in the same way as in the first argument of CoordinateChartData. The short form in which dim is omitted may be used.
• The following options can be given:
•  Assumptions \$Assumptions assumptions to make about parameters Method Automatic method to use
• Specific methods include:
•  Automatic automatic method selection "Integrate" exact symbolic integration "NIntegrate" numeric integration
• Additional method suboptions can be given in the form Method->{,opts}.
• Any option of Integrate or NIntegrate can be passed as a method suboption to the corresponding method.
• Symbolic limits of integration are assumed to be real and ordered. Symbolic coordinate chart parameters are assumed to be in range given by the property of CoordinateChartData.
