# Spherical Segment of Two Bases

## Spherical Segment of Two Bases

The portion of a sphere between two parallel planes that cut the sphere.

### Formula

To determine the volume V of a spherical segment of height h between two circular sections of radii R1 and R2, the following formula may be used :

$$V=\dfrac{πh(3R_1^2\space+\space3R_2^2\space +\space h^2)}{6}$$
