Enter the total cross-sectional area (ft^2) and the length of section (ft) into the Volume From Cross-Section Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Volume From Cross-Section. 

Volume From Cross-Section Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Volume From Cross-Section. 

Vc = CSA * L
  • Where Vc is the Volume From Cross-Section (ft^3)
  • CSA is the total cross-sectional area (ft^2) 
  • L is the length of section (ft) 

To calculate volume from a cross-section, multiply the cross-sectional area by the length.

How to Calculate Volume From Cross-Section?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Volume From Cross-Section.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total cross-sectional area (ft^2).
    1. The total cross-sectional area (ft^2) is given as:  250.
  2. Next, determine the length of section (ft).
    1. The length of section (ft) is provided as: 4.
  3. Finally, calculate the Volume From Cross-Section using the equation above: 

Vc = CSA * L

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

Vc = 250 * 4 = 1000 (ft^3)

Example Problem #2: 

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

total cross-sectional area (ft^2) = 300

length of section (ft) = 9

Entering these values and solving gives:

Vc = 300*9 = 2700 (ft^3)
