Hello,
I'm in the process of creating a calculation spreadsheet with Excel. In this spreadsheet I need to calculate a volume of an object that has an arbitrary crosssection but from the side of the crosssection, it is always triangle.
At the moment the spreadsheet calculates the volume of a circular or a rectangular crosssection. This I was able to achieve by integration. The crosssection can be created by giving the coordinates for the vertices.
Does anyone have any ideas of a formula or equation, if you prefer, that could calculate the volume when the crosssection truly is arbitrary?
PS. I tried to attach an image of the object that would've perhaps given you a better understanding of what I mean but if you do not see it, then that means the upload button is not working.
