The **Volume of an Ellipsoid** formula, V = ^{4}/_{3}⋅π⋅a⋅b⋅c, computes the volume of an ellipsoid with semi-axes of lengths a, b, and c.

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

- (
**a**) semi-axis a. - (
**b**) semi-axis b. - (
**c**) semi-axis c.

**Volume of an Ellipsoid (V):** The volume of the ellipsoid (**v**) is returned in cubic meters. However, the volume can be automatically converted to other volume units (e.g. cubic feet, gallons, barrels) via the pull-down menu.

The formula for the volume of an ellipsoid is as follows:

V = ^{4}/_{3}⋅π⋅a⋅b⋅c

where:

- V is the volume of the ellipsoid
- a, b and c are the lengths of the semi-axes

An ellipsoid is the most general shape in the class that includes:

- ellipsoid
- oblate spheroid
- sphere

Note that in each progressing case the number of axes with different lengths reduces from 3 in an ellipsoid, to 2 in an oblate spheroid, to one uniform radius in a sphere. Note that this formula is the equivalent to the volume of a sphere:

V =^{4}/_{3}⋅π⋅a⋅b⋅c

V =^{4}/_{3}⋅π⋅a⋅a⋅a

V =^{4}/_{3}⋅π⋅a^{3}where a is the radius (r) of the sphere.

**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.
