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.

Chicken egg

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.

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