easiest way to know how much disk space is left on partition

It is a very simple question, what is the linux command that tells me how much disk space is left on the partition?? or i have to install a certain partition manage to know? because it doesn't appear on cfdisk, and I find strange to have to install a external program to the kernel to know such a important thing
