# Partial Volume in a Horizontal Capsule Tank - Feet

Calculate the amount of liquid in a partially filled horizontal capsule tank or container. The horizontal capsule tank is a cylinder with hemispherical heads on the ends. This calculator uses feet for measurements.

##### Approximate weight of Fuel or Water
```one US gallon of water = 8.34 pounds.
one US gallon of diesel fuel = 7.1 pounds
one US gallon of gas = 6 pounds
```
##### Note:
`The length measurement of the tank is the end to end length!`

2. the volume of the tank in cubic inches
3. the volume of the tank in cubic metres
4. the total amount of liquid the tank can hold in US gallons
5. amount of liquid the tank can hold in litres
6. the amount of liquid inside the tank in cubic feet
7. the amount of liquid inside the tank in US gallons
8. the amount of liquid inside the tank in Imperial gallons
9. the amount of liquid inside the tank in litres
10. the amount of liquid inside the tank in hectolitres
11. the weight of the liquid inside the tank based on lbs/gal US
12. the amount of liquid it will take to fill this tank in US gallons

##### Formula
```Ve = 1/3πd²(3r-d)
Vc = Lr²Y-(r-d)√Dd-d²
where Ve is the volume of the two caps
Vc the volume of the cylinder part
L the length of the cylinder part
r half the Diameter
Y=2cos-¹(r-d)/d
d the depth of the liquid inside the tank
D the diameter
```
