I am afraid I do not understand what you want exactly (ellipse, parallelepiped?). The area of an ellipse with semi-major axis a and semi-minor axis b is given by
Area=PI*a*b

### 13 inch round pan 2 inches deep =how many cubic inches

You can view this question as what is the surface area of the 13 inch round pan, and then with it being 2 inches deep, calculate the volume.

Surface area = pi * r ^ 2, where r is the radius of the pan
In this case, the diameter is 13 inches, so the radius will be 6.5 inches.

Putting it into the formula, we get surface area = pi * 6.5 ^ 2.

Because of BEDMAS, we have to do the square before we multiply.

Surface area = pi * (6.5 ^ 2)
= 132.7square inches.

To get the volume, we multiply this surface area by the depth of 2 inches.

Volume = surface area * height
Volume = 132.7 * 2
Volume = 265.4 cubic inches.

Good luck,

Paul

### How to convert from cubic meter into square meter

You don't. Cubic meter is a measure of volume while square meter is a measure of volume.

For example, consider a room that's ten meters by ten meters, The room is 100 square meters. Now consider a ceiling that's two meters high. The volume is 200 cubic meters. Then raise the ceiling a meter so it's three meters high. Now the volume is 300 cubic meters, while the area is still 100 square meters.

### How many cubic yards is 3600 square feet in 6 inches?

1. Calculate
• Calculate your area (see below)
• Calculate your volume; Multiply area times the depth, this will be volume in cubic feet
• Calculate your cubic yards; Divide cubic feet by 27 to convert to cubic yards and this is your answer.
• Where (ft2) = square foot, (ft3) = cubic foot, (yd3) = cubic yard
3. or i'll do it 66 and 2/3 cu Yds

### How to calculate the volume of a oval shaped spher

The volume of a solid of revolution can be calculated by making use of some methods of integral calculus. For that you will need the exact equation of the the surface that limits the solid. Nothing you can do on a calculator.
However for the spheroids there exit formulas you can use on a calculator.
• For an ellipsoid
If a, b, c are the lengths of the semiaxes (length of semiaxis=half the length of the axis)
V=(4/3)PI*a*b*c

• For an oblate spheroid
An oblate spheroid is the solid of revolution formed by the rotation of an ellipse about its minor axis (here an image of the cross section from Wikipedia).

V=(4/3)PI*(a^2)*b

• For a prolate spheroid
A prolate spheroid is the solid of revolution formed by the rotation of an ellipse about its major axis

V=(4/3)PI*a*(b^2)

Hello,
Sorry to say it but the question does not make sense. A circle is a figure that is perfectly defined by the knowledge of its center (or centre depending of the English you use) and its radius.

An ellipse is perfectly defined if you know its two foci (plural of focus) and the length each of its two axes (major and minor).
Is it the perimeter, the area, the parameter p of the ellipse you are lookong for.

### What is the forular/working out of- ellipse with a long axis 2.500mm and short axis .850 (double the 0.425 radius) the area is 1.669 thus the area of the part circle is 0.835. what is the formular

I'm not sure what your ellipse looks like but the equation for the area of an ellipse is given by:

pi times the long axis times the short axis

pi = 3.1416
The length of the long axis is from the center of the ellipse to the outer edge of the ellipse
The length of the short axis is from the center of the ellipse to the outer edge of the ellipse

Hope this helps Loringh
