# Total volume of the two spherical caps of two intersecting spheres (by the diacentre and the spere'sradii)

## Description

A spherical cap or spherical dome is a portion of a sphere cut off by a plane. If the plane passes through the center of the sphere, so that the height of the cap is equal to the radius of the sphere, the spherical cap is called a hemisphere. The total volume of the two spherical caps of two intersecting spheres of differend radii can be calculated by the radii of the spheres and the diacenter (the distance between the two sphere centers).
