The volume of half an ellipsoid 
20120810 

From Darcy: Hi,
I need to calculate the volume of half an ellipsoid, split horizontally along the long axis. In effect, an oval shaped mound of soil. So the bottom would be an ellipse. I have the length, width and height measurements but not the formula. Thanks! Answered by Robert Dawson and Walter Whiteley. 





The volume of an ellipsoid 
20100101 

From Barbara: I need to calculate the volume of an ellipsoid with the dimensions:
102.5 mm x 57 mm x 57 mm = L x W x H
I am using the formula V = 4/3 pi (.5L)(.5W)(.5H), but it isn't giving me a reasonable
number. Answered by Penny Nom.
