This Volume of a Pentagon calculator computes the volume of a regular pentagon shaped objects with 5 equal sides of length (s) and a height (h).
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose units and enter the following:
Volume of a Pentagon (V): The volume is returned in cubic meters. However, this can be automatically converted to other volume units (e.g. gallons, cubic feet) via the pull-down menu.
The calculator first computes the Area of a Pentagon shaped surface, CLICK HERE, and then multiplies that area by the height to determine the volume of the pentagon shape.
The formula for the volume of a pentagon is:
A regular pentagon has five equal sides and equal angles. The U.S. Pentagon A pentagon volume is a pentagon shaped object with a regular pentagon cross-section (area) and perpendicular height.
One famous pentagon shaped object is the U.S. Pentagon, home of the U.S. military. The Pentagon has side lengths (s) of 921 feet, and a height (h) of 77 feet. Use the calculator and compute the volume.
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.
