I sealed the bottom of one of my pots with clingfilm then filled it with water and it held 5 litres.
I then plugged my numbers into this calculator and it told me the pot was 4.843 litres so that's good enough for me.
All you need to do is type in three things :
1. The radius of the base, this is the radius of the top of our plant pot.
2. The radius of the top, this is the radius of the bottom of our plant pot.
3. The height of the pot.
Don't forget to set your units (cm, inch, whatever) before doing the calculation.
This seems the easiest,. most accurate way to me.

I cant believe this thread is getting this big!
Its not an exact science when choosing pot sizes - its a rough idea and the plants wont complain if there's a litre or two short.
Just use the very simple method above and get a rough idea.
