Vertical Cylinder Tank - Metres

Vertical Cylinder Tank

Calculate the volume and capacity of a vertical cylinder tank.
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 length, not the radius length!

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


  1. the volume of the vertical cylinder tank in cubic metres
  2. the volume in cubic feet
  3. the tanks' capacity in litres
  4. the capacity in US gallons
  5. the capacity in Imperial gallons
  6. full tank liquid weight based on kilograms/litre
V = 𝝅(D/2)H
where V is the volume
𝝅 = 3.14159265
D the diameter
H the height of the tank
one cubic metre (m³) = 35.3146667214886 cubic feet (ft³)
one cubic metre (m³) = 1000 litres (L)
one cubic metre (m³) =  264.172052358148 gallons (gal) US
one cubic metre (m³) =  219.969248299088 gallons (gal) Imperial
