## What Is Volume?

Volume is a quantity basically related to physics. It is actually a scalar quantity that symbolizes the amount of space occupied by any three-dimensional substance.

## How to Calculate Volume in Excel: 7 Different Ways

### 1. Volume Calculation of a Sphere

A sphere is basically a solid round figure. We can calculate the volume of a sphere using the following formula:

**Volume of a Sphere = 4/3 * Π * r^3**

Where, r = Radius of the sphere

**Steps:**

- Find the related parameters. In this case, we only need to know the radius of the sphere.
- Select a cell for the volume calculation (i.e.
**C7**).

- Now, input the following formula in cell
**C7:**

`=(4/3)*PI()*C5^3`

Here, **C5 **represents the radius of the sphere in meters.

- Press
**ENTER**to have the volume of the sphere in**m**. If your original data be in another unit then this unit will be changed accordingly.^{3}

You can practice here for expertise (you will find this portion at the right side of the sheet).

### 2. Volume Calculation of a Rectangular Solid

**A rectangle **is a parallelogram all of whose angles are right angles and the adjacent sides are unequal in length. The formula to calculate the volume of a rectangle is as follows:

**Volume of a Rectangle= l * b * c**

Where,

l = Length of a rectangle

b = Breadth of a rectangle

c = Height of a rectangle

**Steps:**

- Find the related parameters. Here, we need the length, breadth, and height of the rectangle..
- Choose a cell for the volume calculation (i.e.
**C9**).

- Insert the following formula:

`=C5*C6*C7`

Where,

**C5** = Length of the rectangle in meters**C6 **= Breadth of the rectangle in meters**C7** = Height of the rectangle in meters

- Now, hit
**ENTER**and we have the volume of the rectangle in**m**.^{3}

### 3. Volume Calculation of a Cube

**A cube **is a parallelogram all of whose angles are right angles and all the sides are equal in length.

**Volume of a Cubee= a^3**

Where,

a = Length of the sides

**Steps:**

- Collect the edge length data of a cube..
- Pick a cell for the calculation (i.e.
**C7**).

- Write down the formula mentioned below:

`=C5^3`

Where,

**C5** = Edge Length in meters

- Finally, press
**ENTER**to finish the process in the**m**^{3}

You can practice here by yourself.

### 4. Volume Calculation of a Cylinder

**A cylinder **is actually a solid geometrical figure with a circular or oval cross-section and straight parallel sides.

**Volume of a Cylinder = Π * r^2 * h**

Where,

r = Radius of the Cylinder

h = Height of the Cylinder

**Steps:**

- Find the radius and height of a cylinder..
- Now, pick a cell for the volume calculation (i.e.
**C8**).

- Next, input the following formula:

`=PI()*C5^2*C6`

Where,**C5 **= Radius of the Cylinder in meters**C6** = Height of the Cylinder in meters

- Hit
**ENTER**to finish the calculation in**m**.^{3}

For the betterment, you can practice here by yourself.

### 5. Volume Calculation of a Cone

**Cone **is a solid or hollow object which has a circular base and an apex.

**Volume of a Cone = 1/3 * Π * r^2 * h**

Where,

r = Radius of the Cone

h = Height of the Cone

**Steps:**

- Firstly, find the radius and height of a cone.
- Next, choose a cell for the volume calculation (i.e.
**C8**).

- Now, input the formula mentioned below:

`=(1/3)*PI()*C5^2*C6`

Where,**C5 **= Radius of the Cone in meters**C6** = Height of the Cone in meters

- Now, press
**ENTER**to have the result in**m**.^{3}

Try yourself in the following section.

### 6. Volume Calculation of a Torus

**Torus **is a large convex molding with a semicircular cross-section.

**Volume of a Torus = Π * r^2 * 2 * Π * R**

Where,

r = Inner Radius of the Torus

R = Outer Radius of the Torus

**Steps:**

- Firstly, find the inner and outer radius of a torus.
- Then, select a cell for the volume calculation (i.e.
**C8**).

- Now, input the formula mentioned below:

`=PI()*C5^2*2*PI()*C6`

Where,**C5 **= Inner Radius of the Torus in meters**C6** = Outer Radius of the Torus in meters

- Finally, press
**ENTER**to have the volume of the torus in the**m**^{3}

You can practice in the following section.

### 7. Volume Calculation of an Ellipsoid

**The ellipsoid **represents a three-dimensional figure which is symmetrical with all three axes. Its plane sections normal to one axis are circles and all the other plane sections are ellipses.

**Volume of an Ellipsoid = 4/3 * Π * x * y * z**

Where,

x = Value along X-axis

y= Value along Y-axis

z= Value along Z-axis

**Steps:**

- Find the related parameters. Here, we need ellipsoid values along the X, Y, and Z axes.
- Next, choose a cell for the volume calculation (i.e.
**C9**).

- Insert the following formula:

`=(4/3)*PI()*C5*C6*C7`

Where,**C5** = Value along X-axis in meters**C6 **= Value along Y-axis in meters**C7** = Value along Z-axis in meters

- Finally, press
**ENTER**to calculate the ellipsoid volume in the**m**^{3}
