# Volume of an ellipsoidal cap Calculator

## Calculates the volume, base and surface area of an ellipsoidal cap given the semi-axes and height. | ||

- Purpose of use
- Large form stained glass domes.
- Comment/Request
- Would it be possible to allow calculation given the r1, r2 from the cap base?

Say, I only know the opening and radius at the base of the cap the and the rise from the base of the cap.

Also is the surface Area of the cap including the flat base or not?

- Purpose of use
- I am a pharmacist, I use it to calculate the volume of anoblong tablet

- Comment/Request
- what is " c " represent????

- Purpose of use
- I have question.

Suppose you have two case for volume of an ellipsoidal cap.

In the first case with a=2, b=3, c=4 and h=6 then volume will be 84.82

In the second case with a=2, b=3, c=5 and h=6 then volume will be 81.42

why when we increase the amount c then volume decrease? - from Keisan
- Volume of an ellipsoidal cap Calculator is expressed as pi*a*b/(3*c^2) * h^2*(3*c-h).

So, in your case, increasing the amount c, the volume decreases because of divided by [c^2].

- Purpose of use
- I,m chemical engineer and i need to know level calculation.

Thank you for your site and it,s information.

It,s very very ... good.

- Purpose of use
- Determining the probability of collision of objects in orbit.
- Comment/Request
- I want to determine the area of the base of the cap if the slice is not orthogonal to the longitudinal axis "c".

- Purpose of use
- I needed to calculate the volume of a slice of watermelon for the purpose of recording my fluid intake. Now, I just need to convert cubic inches into milileters. :D

- Comment/Request
- What is the formula for the surface area of an ellipsoid cap?

- Purpose of use
- To work out the average air velocity below an agricultural spray nozzle from passes on a line through the spray fan in both directions of the spray fan which is elliptical in shape and as the velocity varies as like an ellipoidal cap the above formula is very good. I did a quick check and it goes to the spherical cap formula using a = b= c = radius

- Purpose of use
- To do an estimate of the over all flux from an agricultural spray nozzle from measurements of flux along line sections through the spray. As a quick part check of the formula I worked through the case for a spheriod and the formula gives the correct answer.
