Spherical Cap Volume Formula

Formula variable explanation:

  • S represents the volume.
  • r represents the Radius.
  • h represents the Height.

LaTeX formula

If you are working in a TeX based editor you could use this TeX formula to calculate the spherical cap volume.

\mathrm{S}=\frac{\pi}{6}\cdot\mathrm{h}\cdot\left(3\cdot{ r}^{2}+{\mathrm{h}}^{2}\right)

How To Calculate The Spherical Cap Volume Your Self

Calculating the volume is rather simple when you know the formula presented above. Follow these steps:

  1. Write down this formula:

  2. Then change the following variables with your values:
    1. r shall be changed with the Radius of your spherical cap. As an example r could be changed to 10.
    2. h shall be changed with the Height of your spherical cap. As an example h could be changed to 10.
  3. Now you can enter this in to your calculator and you will get your answer.
