# discretize.CylindricalMesh.cell_volumes#

property CylindricalMesh.cell_volumes#

Volumes of all mesh cells

This property returns a 1D vector containing the volumes of all cells in the mesh. When computing the volume of each cell, we take into account curvature. Thus a cell lying within radial distance $$r_1$$ and $$r_2$$, with height $$h_z$$ and with azimuthal width $$\Delta \phi$$, the volume is given by:

$V = \frac{\Delta \phi \, h_z}{2} (r_2^2 - r_1^2)$
Returns
(n_cells numpy.ndarray
