How do u calculate the volume of an aircraft wing?


Would it work if I calculate the area of tip and root chord then times it by the span?

Thanks

That's one way, but the answer might not be accurate depending on the shape of the wing. A better way would be to calculate the area of several different sections, and then use one of the rules for numerical integration (See Simpson's Rules).
