The Weight or Mass of an Ellipsoid calculator computes the weight or mass of an ellipsoid with semi-axes of lengths a, b, and c (see diagram), where the composition of the ellipsoid has a mean density (mD).
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose units and enter the following:
Mass of Ellipsoid (m): The mass of the ellipsoid is returned in kilograms. However, this can be automatically converted to other mass and weight units (e.g. pounds, tons, grams) via the pull-down menu.
Note: the CLICKING HERE., elements, liquids and materials can be found by
|Common Mean Densities|
The formula for the mass or weight of an ellipsoid is:
`m =[4/3 * pi *a*b*c]*mD`
The formula computes the volume of the geometric shape based on the input parameters. With the computed volume, this formula then executes the simple equation below to compute the approximate mass of the object.
