# Calculate Liters in an Egg

## Calculator of how many liters, centiliters or milliliters fit in an egg of a certain size.

An egg, at least a chicken egg and most bird eggs, are mathematically two half spheroids of equal radius and different heights. Theoretically, the height and width should be measured on the inside. A hen's egg has a shell thickness of about 0.3 to 0.5 millimeters, twice the thickness must be subtracted from the height and width on the outside.

Example: an egg with a height of 5 cm and a width of 4.4 cm, with a shell thickness of 0.4 mm, has a volume of 4.8 centiliters.

Please enter a height and a width. The other height and width as well as the content in milliliters (ml), centiliters (cl), deciliters (dl) and in liters (l) will be calculated.

This chicken egg with a height of 6 centimeters and a width of 4.5 centimeters on the outside contains a bit more than 6 centiliters.

Eggs can also be spherical, like the eggs in frog spawn, for example. In this case, please simply enter the same value for height and width (either both outside or both inside). There are also eggs with a completely different shape; ray eggs, for example, look very interesting, but of course such shapes cannot be calculated with this.

For calculating the volume of the egg shape, it is irrelevant where the border between the two half spheroids runs. Both share the same circular base, where they are connected to each other. The volume is determined from this and the total height; how much of the height falls on one spheroid and the other is irrelevant for the result. An egg made from a very elongated half spheroid and a very flat one therefore has the same volume as an almost or completely spherical one, as long as the width and height are identical.

Here you can convert metric volume units into customary and imperial units.
