This website provides calculation software that functions over the Internet, and performs a number of calculations with a General Volume Equation.  If you want this software in the Microsoft Excel format for both Excel 2003, and 2007-2010 you can download it in a zipped folder, with two files, by left clicking on these words.

 

  
 
  This calculation device functions online, over the Internet, and it performs multiple computations to calculate the volume of several geometric forms, simultaneously, with a general volume equation:  
   
   
   
  Vg=KvHgLgWg  
  If you want more information on the general volume equation see the following: www.TechForText.com/U or left click on these words. The e-book at this website is titled: A Theorem of General and Universal Equations, for Creating Generalized Equations with the Formulas from Mathematics and Physics  
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
  TO USE THIS CALCULATION DEVICE, left click in the white boxes below, and enter numbers for height, length, and width. For calculated results, left click on the CALCULATE BUTTON, or anywhere outside of an input box.  
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
  NOTE: For some of the calculations, the numbers in the white boxes below are interpreted as a radius, such as for calculations involving spheres and ellipsoids.  
   
   
   
   
   
   
                                                                                                                     
  Enter the Height  
     
  Enter the Length

Section 1) Calculations for three Geometric Structures
       
  K = 1  
   
       
  K =(4/3)?  
   
       
  K = 1/3 This calculation is for the volume of a pyramid  
   
       
Section 2) Calculations for other Three-Dimensional Structures
  The numbers you entered in the white input boxes above, are use for the calculations in this section, but you must enter a value for K, in the white input box below. Read the following instructions.  
   
   
  In this section, you can enter your own value for K, which can be for the volume of most geometric forms, including odd shaped structures. However, you must know the value of K that pertains to that structure. When dealing with certain types of odd shaped structures, it is sometimes possible to obtain an average value for K. For example, you can probably estimate, or experimentally determine, the average value for K, for grains of sand, human beings of specific body types, and various species of animals and plants.  
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
  Thus, you can calculate the volume of most three-dimensional geometric figures with this software. However, some complex geometric structures are comprised of two or more simpler geometric forms. When this is the case, the volume of the simpler individual structures must be calculated separately, and added together to obtain the total volume of the complex structure.  
   
   
   
   
  In the white box below, enter the value of K that relates to the area of your geometric figure.
