#### Results

1. the volume of the tank in cubic inches
2. volume in cubic feet
3. volume in cubic metres
4. tank capacity in US gallons
5. capacity in Imperial gallons
6. capacity in litres
7. weight of the liquid when the tank is full
8. the surface area of the tank in square inches
9. the surface area in square feet
10. the surface area in square millimetres
11. the surface area in square metres
##### Formula
```V = 2/3𝝅abh
where V is the volume
𝝅 = 3.14159265
a length A
b length B
h the height
```
