Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) Examples
g.sphere
the surface and volume of a sphere
g.spheroid
the surface and volume of a spheroid
g.cylinder
the surface and volume of a cylinder;
note that the surface area calculation ignores the top and bottom.
1 2 3  g.sphere(x)
g.spheroid (x, b = 1)
g.cylinder (x, L = 1)

x 
the radius 
b 
the ratio of long/short radius of the spheroid; if b<1: the spheroid is oblate. 
L 
the length of the cylinder 
A list containing:
surf 
the surface area 
vol 
the volume
