` = "Volume of Polygon Slab"`

Enter a value for all fields

The **Volume of Concrete in a Polygon Slab** calculator computes the amount of concrete (volume) in a polygon shaped concrete slab based on the diameter of the slab, number of sides (e.g., 8 for octagon), and depth. It also returns number of bags (40lb, 60lb, 80lb), water required to make the cement, surface area, length of the individual sides and the total length of the form boards. **FORMULA CORRECTION on 6/2024.**

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

- (
**n**) Number of Sides - (
**D**) Diameter around Polygon - (
**d**) Depth of Slab

**Concrete in a Polygon Slab (V):** The volume of concrete is returned in cubic yards, the surface area in square feet, and the length of one side and the perimeter in feet.. However, these can be automatically converted to compatible units via the pull-down menu. The calculator also computes the equivalent volume in bags of concrete of the following sizes.

- 40lb bags
- 60lb bags
- 80lb bags

Polygons range from three sided (triangles) on up including rectangles (n=4), pentagons (n=5) and so on. The user needs to determine the number of sides (n) in the slab to compute the volume. The volume of a slab is computed by multiplying the surface area of the slab by the depth (see diagram).

The volume of the polygon shaped slab is defined by:

**n**- the number of sides of the polygon**r**- the radius from the center of the polygon to a polygon vertex**d**- the depth or thickness of the slab

This equation could be used to estimate the amount of concrete needed for any polygon shaped slab. vCalc simplifies these equations in several ways for the user. First, it performs the simple geometry equations for the volume of a polygon shaped object. Second, it handles different units from small (e.g. cm and inches) to large (e.g. yard, meters even kilometers and miles). vCalc also provides automatic conversions for the units of the volume including standard volumes like cubic yards and meters, but it also includes non-standard units that are useful regarding concrete including "number of 40lb bags" needed.

The equation generates volume of poured concrete to be delivered or the corresponding number of bags of pre-mixed concrete that would be required to fill the same volume form.

This kind of concrete project could be used for a base for a backyard patio, gazebo, deck, porch, and drive way.
