I will cast my question mostly in words. I usually find Liouville's volume theorem cast in two forms:
Easy way (without differential forms language): Phase space volume remains preserved under Hamiltonian dynamics. Let's call this phase space volume the 'usual volume'.
Sophisticated way (in the differential forms language): Volume 2-form does not change with the Hamiltonian flow.
Now, I have the impression that volume 2-form when acts upon displacement vectors, gives the 'usual volume' and hence volume 2-form is not the same as the 'usual volume'. So aren't the above two ways of stating Liouville's theorem not equivalent? The first talks about the 'usual volume' being unchanged and the second talks about the volume 2-form being unchanged. Please help me see how are these two statements of Liouville's theorem equivalent.
