interval 1 (0,2) midpoint area $=.65$ Volume $=2\cdot .65=1.3$
interval 2 (2,4) midpoint area $=.61$ ${m}^{2}$ Volume $=2\cdot .61=1.22$ ${m}^{3}$
interval 3 (4,6) midpoint area $=.59$ ${m}^{2}$ Volume $=2\cdot .59=1.18$ ${m}^{3}$
interval 4 (6,8) midpoint area $=.55$ ${m}^{2}$ Volume $=2\cdot .55=1.10$ ${m}^{3}$
interval 5 (8,10) midpoint area $=.50$ ${m}^{2}$ Volume $=2\cdot .50=1.00$ ${m}^{3}$
Total Volume $=1.3+1.22+1.18+1.10+1.00=5.80$ ${m}^{3}$
