Spherical Cap Volume Calculator

This spherical cap volume calculator helps you find the volume of spherical caps. If you ever wondered how to find the volume of a spherical cap, this calculator is here to help you. In this article, you can also find the formulas for obtaining spherical cap volume. We will also explain how to calculate the volume of spherical cap with an example.

Spherical cap volume formula

The volume of a spherical cap is found according to the following formula:

V = 1/3 * πh2(3R - h)

where R is the radius of the whole ball and h is the height of the cap.

Example of how to calculate the volume of a spherical cap

We now have the formula to calculate the volume of a spherical cap. Let’s look at a worked example.

For a spherical cap with a ball radius of 5 cm and the cap height of 2 cm, we can calculate the volume like so:

  • V = 1/3 * πh2(3R - h)
  • V = 1/3 * π * 22(3 * 5 - 2) = 54.45 cm3

Now you know how to find the volume of a spherical cap and the formula to apply. If you need a handy way to calculate the volume of any spherical cap, why not try out our spherical cap volume calculator?
