The cylinder with hemispherical ends calculator is a physics tool that helps to find the volume of a particular type of cylinder. It needs only two values to calculate the volume.

The instructions to use this tool are:

- Enter the radius of the hemispheres.
- Enter the length of the cylinder.
- Click Calculate.

That’s all you need to do. The calculator will give the calculated answer within a fraction of a second. Also, try our Cylinder tank Calculator.

It is actually a shape in which two halves of a sphere aka hemispheres are linked by an equator or cylinder. It is also known as a capsule.

It has a vast use in biomedical sciences.

The volume of a capsule is calculated by using the formula:

**= (****π**** * r**^{2}** * h) + (( 4 / 3 ) * ****π**** * r**^{3}**)**

Where **h** is length and **r** is radius here.

**Example:**

A sphere has a radius of **3.5 cm**. What will be the volume of the capsule made using this sphere? Consider the length as **30cm**.

**Solution:**

**Step 1:** Write the given data.

Radius = 3.5cm

Length = 30cm

**Step 2:** Put the values in the formula.

= (**π** * r^{2} * h) + (( 4 / 3 ) * **π** * r^{3})

= (**π** * (3.5)^{2} * 30) + (( 4 / 3 ) * **π*** (3.5)^{3})

**Step 3:** Solve.

= (**π** * (3.5)^{2} *30) + (( 4 / 3 ) * **π** * (3.5)^{3}

= (**π** * (3.5)^{2} *30) + (( 4 / 3 ) * **π** * (3.5)^{3}

= (1154.5) + (179.6)

**= 1334.1 **
