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.

Math 
Steve,
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 stationery cabinet.

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

Math 
Steve,
volume is the same as capacity.
"capacity volume" is redundant
