It depends on what shape the object is for an exact formula.  A great way is to use the displacement of water to determine the volume of something.  That is how Archimedes did it with the crown.  If you need a more specific answer, please let me know!

A square has no volume because it is 2D, but a cube, which is 3D the volume is length times with times height

I don't understand

a square is a 2 dimensional object.  It has no depth. In order to have a volume, an object must have a depth.  A cube is a 3 dimensional item, like a pepper or pencil or any item you can hold.  The volume of the cube is the length of a side, times the width, times the depth(or height)

Here is a website that explains finding the volume of a cube http://www.mathopenref.com/cubevolume.html
