    This advanced online Storage Capacity for Rectangular Tank Calculator is useful in calculating the storage capacity of a rectangular tank.

    Example:
    Calculate the storage capacity of a rectangular tank in cubic inches and gallons.
    Length = 15 inches
    Width = 10 inches
    Height = 5 inches

    Apply formula:
    Capacity (Cubic Inches) = Length x Width x Height
    Capacity (Cubic Inches) = 15*10*5
    Capacity (Cubic Inches) = 750 cubic inches
    Capacity (Gallons) = capacity (cubic inches) / 231
    Capacity (Gallons) = 750/231
    Capacity (Gallons) = 3.2467532467532 Gallons
