Enter the total surface area (ft^2) and the length (ft) into the Volume From Surface Area Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Volume From Surface Area. 

Volume From Surface Area Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Volume From Surface Area. 

V = SA * L

  • Where V is the Volume From Surface Area (ft^3)
  • SA is the total surface area (ft^2) 
  • L is the length (ft) 

How to Calculate Volume From Surface Area?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Volume From Surface Area.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total surface area (ft^2). 
    1. The total surface area (ft^2) is given as: 500.
  2. Next, determine the length (ft). 
    1. The length (ft) is provided as: 30.
  3. Finally, calculate the Volume From Surface Area using the equation above: 

V = SA * L

The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

V = 500 * 30 = 15,000 (ft^3)


Example Problem #2: 

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

total surface area (ft^2) = 700

length (ft) = 2

Entering these values and solving gives:

V = SA * L = 1,400 (ft^3)
