The Sphere Cap Weight (Mass) formula provides the weight of the cap of a sphere defined by a depth (h) from the surface in a sphere defined by a radius (r) with a mean density (mD) .
Cap of a Sphere
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.
`mass = mu_(density) * volume`
The mean density (`mu_(density)`) of many common substances, elements, liquids and materials can be found by clicking HERE (e.g. the `mu_(density) (water)` is 1000.0 kg/m³).
