In mathematics (particularly multivariable calculus), a volume integral(∰) refers to an integral over a 3-dimensional domain; that is, it is a special case of multiple integrals. Volume integrals are especially important in physics for many applications, for example, to calculate flux densities.

## In coordinates

It can also mean a triple integral within a region $D\subset \mathbb {R} ^{3}$ of a function $f(x,y,z),$ and is usually written as:

$\iiint _{D}f(x,y,z)\,dx\,dy\,dz.$ A volume integral in cylindrical coordinates is

$\iiint _{D}f(\rho ,\varphi ,z)\rho \,d\rho \,d\varphi \,dz,$ and a volume integral in spherical coordinates (using the ISO convention for angles with $\varphi$ as the azimuth and $\theta$ measured from the polar axis (see more on conventions)) has the form

$\iiint _{D}f(r,\theta ,\varphi )r^{2}\sin \theta \,dr\,d\theta \,d\varphi .$ ## Example

Integrating the equation $f(x,y,z)=1$ over a unit cube yields the following result:

$\int _{0}^{1}\int _{0}^{1}\int _{0}^{1}1\,dx\,dy\,dz=\int _{0}^{1}\int _{0}^{1}(1-0)\,dy\,dz=\int _{0}^{1}\left(1-0\right)dz=1-0=1$ So the volume of the unit cube is 1 as expected. This is rather trivial however, and a volume integral is far more powerful. For instance if we have a scalar density function on the unit cube then the volume integral will give the total mass of the cube. For example for density function:

${\begin{cases}f:\mathbb {R} ^{3}\to \mathbb {R} \\f:(x,y,z)\mapsto x+y+z\end{cases}}$ the total mass of the cube is:

$\int _{0}^{1}\int _{0}^{1}\int _{0}^{1}(x+y+z)\,dx\,dy\,dz=\int _{0}^{1}\int _{0}^{1}\left({\frac {1}{2}}+y+z\right)dy\,dz=\int _{0}^{1}(1+z)\,dz={\frac {3}{2}}$
