# Capsule Calculator

## Concepts

A capsule calculator is a tool that is used to calculate the volume and surface area of a capsule. A capsule is a geometric shape that is similar to a cylinder with rounded ends. It is also known as a stadium of revolution.

### Volume of a capsule

The volume of a capsule is calculated using the following formula:

``````Volume = π * r^2 * h
``````

Where:

• π is a mathematical constant with the approximate value of 3.14
• r is the radius of the capsule
• h is the height of the capsule

### Surface area of a capsule

The surface area of a capsule is calculated using the following formula:

``````Surface area = 2π * r * h + 2π * r^2
``````

Where:

• π is a mathematical constant with the approximate value of 3.14
• r is the radius of the capsule
• h is the height of the capsule

## Formulae

The following table shows the formulae for calculating the volume and surface area of a capsule:

## Benefits
