That depends on what you want to figure out. For volume it is correct.
Only if the pizza were a perfect cylinder Tongue

Most pizzas aren't at all. Hehe.

True, but then the center would still be done that way. And the outer torus would be added separately. It would not be 1 formula.

I do volumetric and pressure calculations on a very regular basis. It's fun really.

You're right, but if you were using only the one to solve for the entire pizza: you're doing it wrong. Smile

RE: Pizza
That depends on how precise you need it to be. The irregularity of the shape makes it impossible to do an accurate calculation based on single formulas. So it then becomes a matter of how much of an error margin is acceptable.

RE: Pizza
You could submerge it in water and calculate the change in water volume. No need to do complicated math Smile

RE: Pizza
I fear pizza can absorb water (it is a bread product after all), thus giving a less accurate measurement of volume.

...what we really need are some lasers...
