## Storage Capacity for Rectangular Tank Calculator

Storage capacity for a rectangular tank Calculator is an online tool used to find the tank capacity using the length, height, and width of the tank. The tank capacity is calculated in terms of cubic inches and gallons.

## What is the mean of Storage Capacity for a Rectangular Tank?

The storage capacity of a rectangular tank is the total amount of liquid or material that the tank stores in it. It is calculated to multiply the length, width, and height of the tank together to estimate its storage capacity.

The units of measurement for the storage capacity of a rectangular tank can vary depending on the application and region, but common units include gallons, liters, cubic feet, and cubic inches. Its formula is stated as.

Tank capacity = L x W x H

Where,

• L = length of the tank.
• W = width of the tank.
• H = height of the tank.

## Examples to calculate the capacity of a tank

Here are discussed a few examples of the storage capacity of the rectangular tank.

Example 1

Find the storage capacity of the tank if its length is 10, width is 6, and height is equal to 7.

Solution:

Step 1: Write the data from the above condition.

L = 10, W = 6, H = 7, tank capacity =?

Step 2: Write the formula of tank capacity.

Tank capacity = L x W x H

Step 3: Put the values from “step 1” in the above formula carefully.

L = 10, W = 6, H = 7

Tank capacity = L x W x H

= 10 x 6 x 7

= 420 cubic inches

While in Gallons.

Tank capacity = 1.8182 gallons

Example 2:

Find the Tank capacity if its length, width, and height are given as.

Length = 34, Width = 118, Height = 179.

Solution:

Step 1: Write the given data from the question.

L = 34, W = 118, H = 179, tank capacity =?

Step 2: Write the formula of tank capacity.

Tank capacity = L x W x H

Step 3: Put the values from “step 1” in the above formula carefully.

L = 34, W = 118, H = 179

Tank capacity = L x W x H

= 34 x 118 x 179

= 718148 cubic inches

While in Gallons.

Tank capacity = 3108.9 gallons
