A hemisphere is a half of a sphere that is formed by a plane that passes through the center of the sphere. It is a symmetrical three-dimensional object that has a curved surface and a flat circular base.

Hemispheres can be seen in many everyday objects, such as bowls, dishes, and cups. The shape of some fruits like watermelon, cantaloupe, and grapefruits are also similar to that of a hemisphere. Some architectural structures like domes, half-spheres, and some parts of buildings also resemble hemispheres.

Easily calculate the volume of a hemisphere with step-by-step guidance using our free calculator below.

The formula for determining the volume of a hemisphere is defined as:

\(V\) \(=\) \(\dfrac{2}{3}\) \(\cdot\) \(\pi\) \(\cdot\) \(r^3\)

\(V\): the volume of the hemisphere

\(r\): the radius of the hemisphere

\(\pi\): A mathematical constant with an infinite decimal tail

The SI unit of volume is: \(cubic \text{ } meter\text{ }(m^3)\)

## Find \(V\)

Use this calculator to determine the volume of a hemisphere when the length of its radius is given.
