Hello Forum.  I'm having trouble trying to figure out how to make some volume calculations in FileMaker.

I seemed to have figured out the first 5, but I'm stuck on a Horizontal Capsule, and a Vertical Capsule.

My goal was to make one long calculation for volume branching for each type of cylinder.  But as you'll see it's getting rather confusing, so maybe in the end I'll just break them out and match calculation to volume-type measured.

I attached a file with some helper text-formula and images.

I figured someone who is super sharp in math/geometry can help.   I suspect Jeremy Bante or Oliver (EOS) can do this in their sleep.

Any help or guidance would be appreciated.  Thanks for taking a look!
