The **Volume of Sphere Segment or Frustum** calculator *Sphere Slice/Segment/Frustum *computes the volume of the section of a sphere made by two parallel planes cutting through the sphere.

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Choose units and enter the following:

- (
**r**) Radius the circle defining the top slice of the sphere._{1} - (
**r**) Radius the circle defining the bottom slice of the sphere._{2} - (
**h**) Height of the segment (frustum) of the sphere or the distance between the two planes

**Volume of a Sphere Segment (V):** The calculator returns the volume in cubic meters. However, this can be automatically converted to other volume units (e.g. cup, gallons, liters or cubic feet) via the pull-down menu.

A sphere slice or segment could be considered a sphere frustum. The inputs are upper radius (**r _{1}**), lower radius (

The formula for the segment or slice of a sphere is as follows:

`V = pi*h/6 * ( 3*r_1^2 +3*r_2^2 + h^2)`

The volume of sphere segment is also known as:

- Volume of a Sphere
- Surface Area of a Sphere
- Mass or Weight of a Sphere
- Radius of a Sphere from the Volume
- Radius of a Sphere from the Surface Area
- Surface Area of a Sphere from the Volume of a Sphere
- Volume of a Sphere from the Surface Area
- Area of Triangle on a Sphere
- Great circle arc distance between two points on a sphere
- Sphere Cap Surface Area
- Sphere Cap Volume
- Sphere Cap Weight (Mass)
- Sphere Segment Volume
- Sphere Segment Weight (Mass)
- Sphere Segment Wall Surface Area (without the circular top and bottom ends)
- Sphere Segment Full Surface Area (with the top and bottom circles, aka ends).
- Volume of Spherical Shell
- Mass of Spherical Shell

Many manufactured objects are in the shape of a Sphere Frustum (aka Sphere Segment). However, the volume of an apple can be estimated using this formula.
