You can use this simple egg surface area and volume calculator to determine the volume and surface area of an egg.

To compute the volume and surface area, simply input the information required in the fields below and click on the "Calculate" button to generate the results.

## The Volume of an Egg

The equatorial diameter is used to denote the width of an egg. Simply half this
number to compute the egg's equatorial radius (**a**). The short polar radius is
the distance between the equator and the nearest pole (**b**). The long polar
radius is the distance from the egg's equator to the farthest pole (**c**).

The shape of an egg consists of two halves of ellipsoids that have separate radius
dimensions. One half has the radii of **a**, **a**, and **b**, while the
second has the radii of **a**, **a**, and **c**. The volume of the egg can
be calculated as follows:

V = (1/2) (4π/3) a^{2}b + (1/2) (4π/3) a^{2}c

= (2π/3) a^{2} (b + c),

Where **π** is the constant 3.14159265.

## The Surface Area of an Egg

To calculate the surface area of an egg, you will need to use cos^{-1}, which
is the inverse trigonometric function arccos. You can calculate the surface area of
an egg using the arccos button on a scientific calculator; however,
make sure that the mode is on radians as opposed to degrees. The formula used to
compute the surface area of an egg is as follows:

## Example

Let's say we have an egg that has the following dimensions:

Equatorial radius: 2 cm (a); short polar radius: 2.5 cm (b); and long polar radius: 3.5 cm (с).

The volume of the egg is as follows:

V = (2π/3) 2^{2} (2.5 + 3.5)

= 50.265 cm^{3}.

The surface area (A) is 67.773 cm^{2}.

Volume (V) = cubic units

Surface Area to Volume Ratio (A/V) =
