I searched the forum and doxygen, found a function mag and the following comments:
// INSTRUCTION FOR USE!
// When one wants to access the cell centre and magnitude, the
// functionality on the mesh level should be used in preference to the
// functions provided here. They do not rely to the functionality
// implemented here, provide additional checking and are more efficient.
// The cell::centre and cell::mag functions may be removed in the future.
// WARNING! See cell::centre
// first calculate the aproximate cell centre as the average of all
// face centres
I am just confused how to use it and what is the best way to find the cell volume? What I am trying to do is something like:
Thanks a lot!

i want to access volume of cells in volScalarField but in openFoam there is two ways to access to the mesh volume and none of them are volScalarField:
const DimensionedField<scalar, volMesh>& V() const;
const scalarField& cellVolumes() const;

thanks for the quick reply, l_r_mcglashan
i used it without thinking because it's written like this in the programmersGuide P33.

Is it possible to get the volumes only of the cells at patchID?
If I have:
label patchID = mesh.boundaryMesh().findPatchID(patchName);
Otherwise to get the
Then I can use that which Kyle recommended. I would like to multiply the value on a patch face with the volume of the cell corresponding to the patch face. The will give me something like a indication of adding mass to cell.

I also have a question regarding the use of mesh.V():
//works Info<< "Total liquid volume liquidV = " << sum(mesh.V()*alpha1).value() << endl; // doesn't work volScalarField interfDens(aInterfaceCells/mesh.V());
