The Volume of a the Cap of a Sphere calculator computes Cap of a Sphere the volume of the cap of a sphere defined by a depth (h) from the surface in a sphere defined by a radius (r) .
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose units and enter the following:
Volume of Sphere Cap (V): The calculator returns the volume in cubic meters. However, this can be automatically converted to other volume units via the pull-down menu.
Volume is a three dimensional measurement of the amount of space taken up by an object. Volume units are cubic measurements for solid objects such as cubic inches and cubic meters. Fluid objects have separate units such as fluid ounces, gallons, barrel and liters.
The volume of an object can measured by the liquid it displaces or be calculated by measuring its dimensions and applying those dimensions to a formula describing its shape. Many such calculations are available in the following list of calculators.
In many cases, the calculators are for a column with a geometric shaped base and vertical sides. The most basic form is an Area times a Height.
