Flat Horizontal Ellipse Tank Volume and Surface Area - Centimetres

Calculate the volume and surface area of a horizontal flat elliptical tank or container.

The ellipse tank here looks like a squashed circle, and for this type of tank the height measurement has to be smaller than the width measurement. This calculator uses centimetres 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 width measurement has to be larger than the height!`
