# Triple Integral Meaning

Nathew
Okay so I just have a question on triple integrals. I understand how to use triple integrals to find volumes, but what I really don't understand is what I am really getting when I take the triple integral OF a function.

I understand physical examples like taking the triple integral of a charge/mass density function will give you the total charge/mass, but what about when it is not that case?

If someone could clear this up for me that would be great!

Thanks!
