# Volume of an Ellipsoid

## Volume calculator for an ellipsoid

## Description, how many faces, edges and vertices are there in an ellipsoid

The ellipsoid could be seen as a sphere but flattened in its axes or could be seen as an 2-dimensions ellipse which when rotated on its short or long axis ends up forming a 3-dimensional shape, which would be considered an ellipsoid. The ellipsoid**has a single curved face, no edges nor vertices.**

## Examples of an ellipsoid

We can find many **objects that look like an ellipsoid**, examples of ellipsoid shaped objects are: American football, rugby ball, lentils and the most interesting of all, the planet earth; which may seem like a sphere but is actually flatter at the poles, making it an ellipsoid. Can you think of any other examples? leave a comment in the comment section at the bottom of the page.

## Formula for the volume of an ellipsoid

To **calculate the volume of an ellipsoid**it is necessary to know the height, length and width; then you need to multiply 4/3 by π (Pi = ~ 3.14) and finally multiply this also by the height, length and width. You can also use the online calculator to **automatically calculate the volume of the ellipsoid**.
