You can easily determine the cubic volume of a spherical cavity by using the formula: V = 4/3 PI R^3.

However, in the case of your image, the volume would probably be better matched by a cylindrical volume: V = PI R^2 H

On second thought, a one-sheet hyperboloid would probably be the best match.

An anonymous reader writes "Nintendo is investigating potential copyright infringement by Nokia during some video demos of their N900 phone, which can be seen emulating Nintendo games. Nintendo spokesman Robert Saunders says: 'We take rigorous steps to protect our IP and our legal team will examine this to determine if any infringement has taken place.' In the video, Nokia says, 'Most publishers allow individual title usage, provided that the user is in possession of the original title.'"
