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.
A quadrilateral is a polygon that has four sides, four vertices (corners), and four angles. The sum of the interior angles of any quadrilateral is always 360 degrees. Quadrilaterals can vary widely in shape and properties, including:
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.
