How to Calculate and Solve for the Axis and Volume of an Ellipsoid | The Calculator Encyclopedia

The image above is an ellipsoid.

To compute the volume of an ellipsoid, three essential parameters are needed and this parameters are axis (a)axis (b) and axis (c).

The formula for calculating the volume of an ellipsoid:

V = 4πabc3

Where;

V = Volume of the ellipsoid
a = Axis of the ellipsoid
b = Axis of the ellipsoid
c = Axis of the ellipsoid

Let’s solve an example;
Given that the axis of the ellipsoid (a) is 9 cm and axis of the ellipsoid (b) is 11 cm with the axis (c) of 14 cm. Find the volume of the ellipsoid?

This implies that;
a = Axis of the ellipsoid = 9 cm
b = Axis of the ellipsoid = 11 cm
c = Axis of the ellipsoid = 14 cm

V = 4πabc3
V = 4π(9 x 11 x 14)3
V = 4π(1386)3
V = (12.56)(1386) / 3
V = (17416.98967) / 3
V = 5805.66

Therefore, the volume of the ellipsoid is 5805.66 cm3.

Calculating the Axis (a) of an Ellipsoid using the Volume of the Ellipsoid, Axis (b) of the Ellipsoid and Axis (c) of the Ellipsoid.

a = V3 / 4πbc

Where;
a = Axis of the ellipsoid
V = Volume of the ellipsoid
b = Axis of the ellipsoid
c = Axis of the ellipsoid

Let’s solve an example;
Find the axis (a) of an ellipsoid when the volume of the ellipsoid is 280 cm3 with an axis (b) of 18 cm and axis (c) of 8 cm.

This implies that;
V = Volume of the ellipsoid = 280 cm3
b = Axis of the ellipsoid = 18 cm
c = Axis of the ellipsoid = 8 cm

a = V3 / 4πbc
a = 280 x 3 / (12.566)(18 x 8)
a = 840 / (12.566)(144)
a = 840 / 1809.504
a = 0.46

Therefore, the axis (a) of the ellipsoid is 0.46 cm.

Calculating the Axis (b) of an Ellipsoid using the Volume of the Ellipsoid, Axis (a) of the Ellipsoid and Axis (c) of the Ellipsoid.

b = V3 / 4πac

Where;
b = Axis of the ellipsoid
V = Volume of the ellipsoid
a = Axis of the ellipsoid
c = Axis of the ellipsoid

Let’s solve an example;
Find the axis (b) of an ellipsoid when the volume of the ellipsoid is 320 cm3 with an axis (a) of 19 cm and axis (c) of 7 cm.

This implies that;
V = Volume of the ellipsoid = 320 cm3
a = Axis of the ellipsoid = 19 cm
c = Axis of the ellipsoid = 7 cm

b = V3 / 4πac
b = 320 x 3 / (12.566)(19 x 7)
b = 960 / (12.566)(133)
b = 960 / 1671.278
b = 0.574

Therefore, the axis (b) of the ellipsoid is 0.574 cm.

Calculating the Axis (c) of an Ellipsoid using the Volume of the Ellipsoid, Axis (a) of the Ellipsoid and Axis (b) of the Ellipsoid.

c = V3 / 4πab

Where;
c = Axis of the ellipsoid
V = Volume of the ellipsoid
a = Axis of the ellipsoid
b = Axis of the ellipsoid

Let’s solve an example;
Find the axis (c) of an ellipsoid when the volume of the ellipsoid is 480 cm3 with an axis (a) of 22 cm and axis (b) of 11 cm.

This implies that;
V = Volume of the ellipsoid = 480 cm3
a = Axis of the ellipsoid = 22 cm
b = Axis of the ellipsoid = 11 cm

c = V3 / 4πab
c = 480 x 3 / (12.566)(22 x 11)
c = 1440 / (12.566)(242)
c = 1440 / 3040.972
c = 0.474

Therefore, the axis (c) of the ellipsoid is 0.474 cm.
