# Partial Volume in a Horizontal Cylinder Tank with Elliptical Heads - Metres

Calculate the amount of liquid in a partially filled horizontal cylinder tank with elliptical 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:
`Include the  length of the two  flanges in the cylinder length. It is assumed that cap depth h is equal to one quarter of the cylinders diameter.`

###### Weight of Liquid and Fill Amount
Weight of Liquid kg
To Fill this Tank, Add Litres

#### Calculation

1. enter the diameter of the horizontal cylinder in metres
2. the length of the tank in metres (includes the flanges)
3. the depth of the liquid inside the tank in metres
4. the weight of the liquid in kilograms per litre

#### Results

1. the volume of the tank in cubic metres
2. the volume in cubic inches
3. the volume in cubic feet
4. the total amount of liquid the tank can hold in litres
5. the tank's capacity in hectolitres
6. the tank's capacity in US gallons
7. the amount of liquid inside the tank in cubic metres
8. the amount of liquid inside the tank in cubic feet
9. the amount of liquid inside the tank in litres
10. the amount of liquid inside the tank in hectolitres
11. the amount of liquid inside the tank in US gallons
12. the amount of liquid inside the tank in Imperial Gallons
13. the weight of the liquid inside the tank based on kilograms per litre
14. the amount of liquid it will take to top up this tank in litres

##### Formula
```V=(r²cos-¹((r-d)/R)-(r-d)Square root = √Dd-d² ))L
where V is the patial volume of the cylinder
r half the tanks height
d the depth of the liquid inside the tank
D the height of the tank
L the lenght of the cylinder part thjat includes the flanges of the heads

Vc = πD³/24;
where Vc is the volume of the elliptical head
D the height of the tank```
##### Conversions
```one cubic metre (m³) = 10 hectolitres (hl)
one cubic metre (m³) = 1000 litres (L)
one cubic metre (m³) = 61023.7440947323 cubic inches (in³)
one cubic metre (m³) =  35.3146667214886 cubic feet (ft³)
one cubic metre (m³) = 264.172052358148 gallons (gal) US
one cubic metre (m³) = 219.969248299088 gallons (gal) Imperial
