    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
