# Cylinder Tank Calculator

Cylindrical Tank is a solid object with:

* two identical flat ends that are circular or elliptical
* and one curved side.
It has the same cross-section from one end to the other.

A storage tank is a container, usually for holding liquids, sometimes for compressed gases (gas tanks). This term can also be used for reservoirs, and for manufactured containers for other storage purposes.

Cylindrical Tank
 Diameter: inches Length: inches Tank Capacity: cubic inches Tank Capacity: Gallons
Formula
C(cubic inches) = ( ( Length * 3.1415 * Diameter2) / 4)
C(Gallons) = C(cubic inches) / 231

Where,
C - Capacity

This advanced online Cylinder Tank Calculator is used to calculate the storage capacity of liquid in a cylindrical tank.

Example:
Calculate the storage capacity of a cylindrical tank for the given details.
Diameter: 25 inches
Length: 20 inches

Solution:
Apply Formula:
C (cubic inches) = ( ( Length * 3.1415 * Diameter2) / 4)
C (cubic inches) = ((20*3.14 * 252)/4)
C (cubic inches) = ((62.8 * 625)/4)
C (cubic inches) = 39250/4
C (cubic inches) = 9817.1875
C (Gallons) = C (cubic inches) / 231
C (Gallons) = 9817.1875 /231
C (Gallons) = 42.49864718614719
