    Doesn't a quadrant refer to 1/4 of the way round the Earth?

    Didn't you ever study basic geometry (circles, spheres, and all that)?

    Yes. The original definition of the metre was that there were 10,000,000 of them to one quarter of Earth's circumference.

    but if you took your quadrant number and mult. by 4 you would get the circ. then you could plug pi and your circ into the equation to get the radius. then get dia. then volume.
