The Greenhouse Volume (arched roof) calculator computes the interior volume of a greenhouse based on simple measurements.
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose the preferred units and enter the following:
Greenhouse Volume: The volume (V) is returned in cubic feet. However this can be automatically converted to other volume units via the pull-down menu.
The volume calculation is a simple computation using the lateral area of the green house defined by the rectangle of (H1*W) and half of a ellipse (.5 * π * W/2*H2) all times the (L) the length. The default input units are feet, and the calculator returns cubic feet. However, vCalc lets the user can choose one of many length and volume units for automatic conversion from the pull-down list for both the input length units and the output volume units.
The volume of a greenhouse is useful in many ways. It is most often needed for calculating the heating and moisture (humidity) needs of the greenhouse.
