The Volume of a Spherical Shell calculator computes the volume of a spherical shell with an outer radius (r) and a thickness (t). Spherical Shell
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose units and enter the following parameters:
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 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:is
