Enter the dome radius and the dome height into the Dome Surface Area Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Dome Surface Area. 

Dome Surface Area Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Dome Surface Area.

DSA = 2*pi*r*h
  • Where DSA is the Dome Surface Area
  • r is the dome radius 
  • h is the dome height 

To calculate dome surface area, multiply the radius by the the height, then multiply this result by 2 times pi.

How to Calculate Dome Surface Area?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Dome Surface Area.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the dome radius.
    • The dome radius is given as: 5.
  2. Next, determine the dome height.
    • The dome height is provided as: 3.
  3. Finally, calculate the Dome Surface Area using the equation above: 

DSA = 2*pi*r*h =

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

DSA = 2*pi*5*3 = 94.24

Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

dome radius = 6

dome height = 2

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator..

DSA = 2*pi*r*h = ?
