Volume calculator for an ellipsoid

Enter the height (a), length (b) and width (c) of the ellipsoid to get the volume automatically.

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 ellipsoidhas 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 ellipsoidit 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.
