Volume Definition

volumen With the term volume you can refer to several and different issues.

In the first place, volume can be the space that a body occupies in a certain place , that is, the amount of space that its matter occupies and that due to the impenetrable condition of the bodies cannot be occupied by another body at the same time. But volume is also the intrinsic property of that matter that will allow us to distinguish one type of matter from another, a substance from another, since they all have a specific volume.

In as much and without having anything to do with what we mentioned in the previous paragraph , the volume is the subjective perception a person has about any sound he hears . The intensity of the sounds will be determined by the energy or acoustic power that passes through a surface per second, the higher the power of a sound, the greater the volume that sound will experience of course.
The perception of any volume always follows a logarithmic scale that is measured in decibels and will be determined by the level of acoustic power that each particular sound shows.

And finally the term volume has a special importance in the literary field or in the vocabulary of those people affected by the collection and reading of books, since with this term the material body of a bound book is designated, whether it contains the complete work or one or some volumes that make up the same.
