Enter the unit cell mass (g) and the unit cell density (g/mm^3) into the Unit Cell Volume Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Unit Cell Volume. 

Unit Cell Volume Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Unit Cell Volume. 

  • Where UCV is the Unit Cell Volume (mm^3)
  • UCM is the unit cell mass (g) 
  • UCD is the unit cell density (g/mm^3) 

To calculate a unit cell volume, divide the unit cell mass by the unit cell density.

How to Calculate Unit Cell Volume?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Unit Cell Volume.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the unit cell mass (g).
    1. The unit cell mass (g) is given as: 5.
  2. Next, determine the unit cell density (g/mm^3).
    1. The unit cell density (g/mm^3) is provided as: 10.
  3. Finally, calculate the Unit Cell Volume using the equation above: 


The values given above are inserted into the equation below:

UCV = 5 / 10 = .5 (mm^3)

Example Problem #2: 

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

unit cell mass (g) = 7

unit cell density (g/mm^3) = 2

Entering these values and solving gives:

UCV = UCM / UCD = 3.5(mm^3)
