Brilliant! When something occupies space, the space belongs to the object. A shadow is nothing but the absence of light. So, even though shadows have definite shapes and sizes, they don't occupy space. They don't have a mass either. So, shadows aren't matter.
This property of how much space an object occupies is called its Volume. In Geometry, you must have studied about the volumes of different shapes.
Let us say that every human's body has a volume of \(50 \, \mathrm{litres}\). If a room has a volume of \(5000 \, \mathrm{litres}\), what is the maximum number of humans you can fit in it?
  • \(10\)
  • \(100\)
  • \(1000\)
  • \(10000\)
