## Wing Volume Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the total wing volume of a triangular wing.

WV = .5*WS*RC*L

- Where WV is the wing volume
- WS is the wing span
- RC is the root chord
- L is the length

To calculate the volume of a wing, multiply the wing span, root chord, and length together, then multiply the result by 1/2.

## What is a wing volume?

Definition:

A wing volume is a measure of the total volume or space that a wing occupies. The wing volume is used in aerodynamic equations to calculate things like lift.

## How to calculate wing volume?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines how to calculate the volume of a wing.

First, determine the wing span of the wing. In this example, the wingspan is measured to be 5 ft.

Next, determine the root chord. The chord of this wing is measured to be 3 ft.

Next, determine the length of the wing. (Sometimes considered width). In this case, the length is 25 ft.

Finally, calculate the wing volume using the formula above:

WV = .5*WS*RC*L

WV = .5*3*5*25

WV = 187.5 ft^3
