      When discussing the relevance of volume I like to point out it’s relation to strength. For example, some roller coasters are built using a handful of thick steel beams, while others are built using a multitude of pieces of wood. They use so many pieces of wood to compensate for their lack of volume, while the steel beams are so voluminous that they only need a handful to keep the coaster sturdy.
