Enter the capsule radius (in) and the capsule side length (in) into the Capsule Volume Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Capsule Volume.

## Capsule Volume Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Capsule Volume.

Vc = pi*r^2*((4/3)*r+a)

• Where Vc is the Capsule Volume (in^3)
• r is the capsule radius (in)
• a is the capsule side length (in)

## How to Calculate Capsule Volume?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Capsule Volume.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the capsule radius (in).
1. The capsule radius (in) is given as: 30.
2. Next, determine the capsule side length (in).
1. The capsule side length (in) is provided as: 20.
3. Finally, calculate the Capsule Volume using the equation above:

Vc = pi*r^2*(4/3*r+a)

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

Vc = pi*30^2*(4/3*30+20) = 169,646 (in^3)

Example Problem #2:

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

capsule radius (in) = 50

capsule side length (in) = 60

Entering these values and solving gives:

Vc = pi*50^2*((4/3*50)+60) = 994,837.67 (in^3)
