vCalc.Paraboloid - Weight

The Mass or Weight of a Paraboloid calculator the weight or mass of a paraboloid of revolution around an axis of length (a) of a width of (b) with a mean density (mD). ParaboloidWeight-illustration.png  A Paraboloid 

INSTRUCTIONS: Choose your preferred units and enter the following:

  • (a) - This is the length along the axis.
  • (b) - This is the length from the axis to the edge of the parabola.
  • (mD)  Density of the material in the paraboloid (CLICK HERE). 

Mass of the Paraboloid (M): The calculator returns the mass of the paraboloid in kilograms.  However, this can be automatically converted to other mass and weight units via the pull-down menu.

The Math

This formula computes the volume of the geometric shape based on the input parameters.  With the computed volume, this formula then executes the simple equation below to compute the approximate mass of the object.

The mean density (mD, μD or ρ) of many common substances, elements, liquids and materials can be found by clicking HERE (e.g. the μD(water) is 1000.0 kg/m³).
