Enter the radius of the pot (in) and the height of the pot (in) into the Pot Volume Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Pot Volume.

## Pot Volume Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Pot Volume.

PV = 3.14159*R^2*H / 281

- Where PV is the Pot Volume (gallons)
- R is the radius of the pot (in)
- H is the height of the pot (in)

To calculate the volume of a pot, multiply the radius squared by pi and the height, then divide by 281.

## How to Calculate Pot Volume?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Pot Volume.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the radius of the pot (in).
- The radius of the pot (in) is given as: 6.

- Next, determine the height of the pot (in).
- The height of the pot (in) is provided as: 10.

- Finally, calculate the Pot Volume using the equation above:

PV = 3.14159*R^2*H / 281

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

PV = 3.14159*6^2*10 / 281 = 4.02 (gallons)

Example Problem #2:** **

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

radius of the pot (in) = 8

height of the pot (in) = 12

Entering these values and solving gives:

PV = 3.14159*8^2*12 / 281 = 8.586 (gallons)
