A spherical wedge is a three-dimensional object that is formed by cutting a sphere with two planes that intersect at an angle. It has a curved surface and two circular bases that are not parallel to each other. The shape of the spherical wedge can vary depending on the angle of the cut.

Spherical wedges are common in architecture and engineering, as they are used in the construction of domes, arches, and bridges. They can also be seen in some types of lenses and mirrors used in optical devices. Some fruits and vegetables like oranges, lemons, and onions also have a spherical wedge-like shape.

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

The formula for determining the volume of a spherical wedge is defined as:
$$V$$ $$=$$ $$\dfrac{2}{3}$$ $$\cdot$$ $$r^3$$ $$\cdot$$ $$\theta$$
$$V$$: the volume of the spherical wedge
$$r$$: the radius of the parent sphere
$$\theta$$: The angle of the wedge
The SI unit of volume is: $$cubic \text{ } meter\text{ }(m^3)$$

## Find $$V$$

Use this calculator to determine the volume of a spherical wedge with the radius and the angle given.
