#### Description

The lite version of this app provides a quick and simple way for you to learn and calculate volume of solids. There are six computer animated videos on the volume of the cube, rectangular solid, cylinder, sphere, cone and pyramid. Each video is divided into several different parts that you can easily skipped to.

Also, we included two sample calculators (cube and rectangular solid) so you can easily calculate the volume and other parameters for these solids. Each calculator will automatically perform unit conversions between yard, inch, feet, centimeter and meter if needed. This will help you to save a lot of time.

The videos included in this app are:
