Enter the container radius (in) and the container height (in) into the Container Volume Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Container Volume. 

Container Volume Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Container Volume. 

CV = 3.14159*CR^2*CH

  • Where CV is the Container Volume (in^3)
  • CR is the container radius (in) 
  • CH is the container height (in) 

How to Calculate Container Volume?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Container Volume.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the container radius (in). 
    1. The container radius (in) is given as: 7.8.
  2. Next, determine the container height (in). 
    1. The container height (in) is provided as: 9.
  3. Finally, calculate the Container Volume using the equation above: 

CV = 3.14159*CR^2*CH

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

CV = 3.14159*7.8^2*9 = 1720.209 (in^3)

Example Problem #2: 

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

container radius (in) = 3

container height (in) = 4.5

Entering these values and solving gives:

CV = 3.14159*3^2*4.5 = 127.234 (in^3)
