# Sphere Volume and Surface Area - Metres

Calculate the volume and surface area of a spherical dome tank or container. The spherical dome tank is a sphere cap and requires a height measurement and the base length of the 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:

The height of the cap can not be more than half the length of the base!

### Spherical Dome Tank - Metres

#### Calculator

- enter the height of the spherical dome tank in metres
- the tank's base length in metres
- the weight of the liquid in kilograms per litre

#### Results

- the volume of the tank in cubic metres
- the volume in cubic centimetres
- the volume in cubic inches
- the volume in cubic feet
- the capacity of the tank in litres
- the capacity in hectolitres
- the capacity in US gallons
- the capacity in Imperial gallons
- full tank liquid weight based on kilograms/L
- the surface area of the tank in square metres
- the surface area in square centimetres
- the surface area in square inches
- the surface area in square feet

##### Formula

R= ((C/2)²/H+H)/2
V= H²Π/3(3R-H)
where R is the radius of the sphere
V the volume of the tank
C the base length of the cap
H the height
𝝅 = 3.14159265
