# Calculation of volume

The Algorithm can be used only for the vessels shaped on a potter’s wheel (rotation body).

The Volume is calculated as a total amount of the cylinder’s capacity. The volume of cylinder was computed as follows:

V = πR^{2}h

R — external radius

h — height of cylinder

For the correct result the drawing should be uploaded as SVG image, the origin of coordinates is in top left corner. (see example).
