Capacity is technically the measure of how much an object can hold. For example, a container, a cup, a dam, etc. This is generally measured in liters.

Volume is technically the measure of how much space a (solid) object takes up. For example, a ball, a rock, a boat. This is generally measured in m3.

However, in common practice they are interchangeable via the conversion
1 ml = 1 cm3 , or
1000 litres = 1m3
