The Volume of Quadrilateral calculator computes the volume of a column of height (h) with a quadrilateral base defined by the length of the four sides (a,b,c,d) and the length of a diagonal between opposing corners (D). Quadrilateral Volume
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose units and enter the following:
Quadrilateral Volume (V): The volume is returned in cubic meters. However this can be automatically converted to compatible 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.
