# Vertical Cylindrical Tank with Hemispherical Heads - Feet

Calculate the volume, capacity, and surface area of a vertical cylindrical tank with hemispherical heads. The tank has the shape of a capsule. 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: measurement used in the calculation is the diameter, not the radius ! The length measurement is the overall tank length, cylinder plus the two caps.

### Vertical Cylindrical Tank with Hemispherical Heads

#### Calculator

- he diameter of the tank in feet
- the height of the tank in feet
- the weight of the liquid in pounds per US gallon

#### Results

- the volume of the bowl tank in cubic feet
- the volume in cubic inches
- the volume in cubic metres
- the tank capacity in US gallons
- the capacity in Imperial gallons
- the capacity in litres
- full tank liquid weight based on lbs/gal US
- the surface area of the tank in square inches
- the surface area in square feet
- the surface area in square millimetres
- the surface area in square metres

##### 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
