The capacity of a vessel is the volume of liquid it can hold and is expressed in liters and milliliters. Most regular objects such as a cube, cuboid, cone, sphere and a cylinder have formulas to calculate their volume.

For instance, the formula to calculate the volume of a cylinder is V=(pi)r^2h, where r is the radius of the cylinder and h is the height. For a cylinder with radius 7 centimeters and height 21 centimeters, its volume is V=(pi)r2h = 22/7 x 7 x 7 x 21 = 3234 cubic centimeters, or 3234/1000 = 3.234 liters.

The difference between matter and energy is that energy is produced from matter yet has no mass and is the capacity to do work while matter is the physical "stuff" in the universe. Matter needs energy to move.
