Calculate the amount of liquid in a partially filled horizontal cylinder tank with elliptical heads.
This calculator uses centimetres for measurements.
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.
one litre of water = 1 kilogram one litre of diesel fuel = 0.832 kilogram one litre of gas = 0.75 kilogram
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
