The Hexagon Volume calculator computes the volume of a regular Hexagon shaped object or column. Regular Hexagon
Hexagon Volume (V): The volume is returned in cubic meters. However, this can be automatically converted to other volume units via the pull-down menu.
A regular hexagon is a six sided polygon where all of the sides are the same length (s). A hexagon volume has the extra dimension of height (h). See the diagram. The formula for theis:
V= 3/2 • √3 • s2 • h
Hexagons appear in mathematics and in nature (e.g. honey comb of honey bees). The volcanic columns at the Giant's Causeway in North Ireland have regular shapes including regular hexagons.
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. Fluids have separate volume units such as liters, fluid ounces, cups, gallons, and barrel.
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. One basic formula for volume is area times a Height when the volume has vertical sides.
