Volume of an Ellipsoid

General information and basic definition of an ellipsoid

An ellipsoid represents a three-dimensional solid analogue of a geometric figure known as an ellipse, and its surface can be described as quadratic. In Cartesian coordinates, the general equation describing the quadratic surface of an ellipsoid is as follows:

(x / a)2 + (y / b)2 + (z / c)2 = 1

The following formula can be applied to calculate the volume of an ellipsoid:

  • Volume (V) = (4/3) × π × a × b × c
  • where:
  • a, b, and c are the lengths of the semi-axes;
  • π is 3.141592654 (to 9 decimal places).

Note: Note: Units are provided for convenience purposes only and do not affect the calculations.
