The **Volume of a Spherical Shell** calculator computes the volume of a spherical shell with an outer radius and a thickness.

**INSTRUCTIONS**: Choose units and enter the following parameters:

- (
**r**) Outer Radius of Sphere - (
**t**) Thickness of Shell

**Volume of a Spherical Shell (V):** The volume of the shell is returned in cubic meters. However the user can automatically convert the volume to other units (e.g. liters, gallons, or cubic inches) via the pull-down menu.

The Volume of a spherical shell can compute the amount of materials needed to coat any spherical object from a candy gumball to a submarine bathysphere.

The equation calculate the Volume of a Sphere is V = 4/3•π•r³. This formula computes the difference between two spheres to represent a spherical shell, and can be algebraically reduced as as follows:

**V = 4/3 • π • (r³ - (r-t)³)**

where:

- V is the volume of the spherical shell
- r is the outer radius and
- t is the thickness

- Sphere Surface Area based radius (r)
- Sphere Surface Area from Volume

- Sphere Volume from Circumference
- Sphere Volume from Surface Area
- Sphere Volume from Mass and Density
- Sphere Radius from Volume
- Sphere Radius from Surface Area
- Sphere Weight (Mass) from volume and density
- Sphere Density
- Area of Triangle on a Sphere
- Distance between Two Points on a Sphere
- Sphere Cap Surface Area

- Sphere Cap Weight (Mass)
- Sphere Segment Volume
- Sphere Segment Weight (Mass)
- Sphere Segment Wall Surface Area (without the circular top and bottom ends)
- Sphere Segment Full Surface Area (with the top and bottom circles, aka ends)
- Volume of Spherical Shell
- Mass of Spherical Shell

**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.
