I need to do a project to figure capacity volume of a stationary cabinet with three shelves. I am confused about how to figure this with the shelves.

consider each shelf as a small solid with width and depth and thickness. Then you can figure its volume and subtract it from the inside volume of the station**e**ry cabinet.

Is capacity done the same way? I am confused about the difference between Volume and capacity. Thanks so much for your help!

volume is the same as capacity.

"capacity volume" is redundant
