## Formula

**C(cubic inches) = ( ( Length * 3.1415 * Diameter ^{2}) / 4)**

**C(Gallons) = C(cubic inches) / 231**

**Where,**

C - Capacity

**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.

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**
