The volume of half an ellipsoid 2012-08-10
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!

The volume of an ellipsoid 2010-01-01
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.
