What is the relationship between volume and variable cost per unit?

If the variable cost per unit remains fixed, then any increase or decrease in unit volume will result in an increase or decrease in total variable costs for a business.

For example, if variable cost per unit was steady at $5, then if unit volume were to increase from 100 to 200 units, then total variable costs would increase as well.
