Cylinder Tank Capacity Calculator:
Cylinder Tank Capacity Calculator is an online tool used to find the tank capacity (volume) using the diameter and length of the tank. The cylinder tank capacity calculator calculates the tank capacity in cubic inches and gallon units.
What is a Cylindrical Tank?
A cylindrical tank is a type of container in the form of a cylindrical shape with a flat or rounded bottom and a flat or rounded top cover. It is used to store liquids, gases, and chemical solutions in various industries.
Formula of Tank Capacity
The formula for tank capacity is:
Volume = Tank Capacity = π x d^{2} x L
Where,
- L = length of Cylinder,
- d = diameter of the cylinder.
Examples of Cylinder Tank Capacity
Example 1
Evaluate the cylindrical tank's capacity if the cylinder's length is 10 and the diameter is 6.
Solution:
Step 1: Given measurements
L = 10, d = 6, Tank capacity =?
Step 2: Take the formula.
Tank capacity = π x L x d^{2}
Step 3: Put the values in the above formula and simplify.
Tank capacity = π x 10 x 6^{2}
Tank capacity = 22/7 x 10 x 36
Tank capacity = 282.735 cubic inches
In Gallons.
Tank capacity = 1.22396 gallons
Example 2
Calculate the cylindrical Tank capacity if its length and diameter are given below.
L = 34, d = 118.
Solution:
Step 1: Write the given measurements.
L = 34, d = 118, Tank capacity =?
Step 2: Take the formula.
Tank capacity = π x L x d^{2}
Step 3: Put the values in the above formula and multiply the terms.
Tank capacity = π x 34 x (118)^{2}
Tank capacity = 22/7 x 34 x 13924
Tank capacity = 371809 (in cubic inches)
In Gallons.
Tank capacity = 1609.56 (in gallons)
