If the pot is a standard cylinder (sides are straight and parallel), the formula (using inches) is: (Diameter^2 * PI/4 * depth) / 57.75 in3/quart. This will give you U.S. quarts.

This assumes the the transition from the bottom and the sides is fairly sharp. If there is a long radius in this transition, as is the case with many cooking pots, or the sides are not parallel, this formula will not accurately work. The easiest way to determine the capacity of this pot would be to pour in known quantities of water until full.
