Calculate the volume, capacity and surface area of a horizontal on-edge elliptical tank/container.
The tank here looks like a squashed circle, and for this type of tank/container, the height has to be larger than the width. This calculator uses inches for measurements.
The height measurement has to be larger than the width!
one US gallon of water = 8.34 pounds one US gallon of diesel fuel = 7.1 pounds one US gallon of gas = 6 pounds
volume= ΠHWL/4 where Π = 3.14159265 H is the height of the tank W the width L the length
