# Vertical Capsule Tank - Metres

Calculate the volume and capacity of a vertical capsule tank or container. The capsule tank here is a vertical cylindrical tank with hemispherical heads.
This calculator uses metres for measurements.

##### Approximate weight of Fuel or Water
one litre of water = 1 kilogram
one litre of diesel fuel = 0.832 kilogram
one litre of gas = 0.75 kilogram
Note: measurement used in the calculation is the  diameter, not the radius ! The length measurement is the overall tank length, cylinder plus the two caps.

#### Calculator

1. the diameter of the tank in metres
2. the height of the tank in metres
3. the weight of the liquid in kilograms per litre

#### Results

1. the volume of the tank in cubic metres
2. the volume in cubic centimetres
3. the volume in cubic inches
4. the volume in cubic feet
5. the capacity of the tank in litres
6. the capacity in hectolitres
7. the capacity in US gallons
8. the capacity in Imperial gallons
9. full tank liquid weight based on kilograms/L
10. the surface area of the tank in square metres
11. the surface area in square centimetres
12. the surface area in square inches
13. the surface area in square feet

##### Formula
V = 𝝅(D/2)²H
where V is the volume
𝝅 = 3.14159265
D the diameter
H the length of the cylinder part of the tank
