Radial Displacement Spherical (Volume) Formula

\(\large{ V = \frac{ 2 \; p \; \pi \; r^4 \; \left( 1 \;-\; \mu  \right)  }{  \lambda \; t }   }\) 
 Symbol English Metric
\(\large{ V }\) = volume \(\large{ in^3 }\) \(\large{ mm^3 }\)
\(\large{ \lambda }\)  (Greek symbol lambda) = elastic modulus \(\large{\frac{lbf}{in^2}}\) \(\large{Pa}\)
\(\large{ \mu }\)  (Greek symbol mu) = Poisson's Ratio \(\large{ dimensionless }\)
\(\large{ \pi }\) = Pi \(\large{3.141 592 653 ...}\)
\(\large{ p }\) = pressure under consideration \(\large{\frac{lbf}{in^2}}\) \(\large{Pa}\)
\(\large{ r }\) = radius to point of intrest \(\large{ in }\) \(\large{ mm }\)
\(\large{ t }\) = wall thickness \(\large{ in }\) \(\large{ mm }\)
