Spike's Calculators

Calculate the surface area, volume, and capacity of a semi-ellipsoid dome tank.

A semi ellipsoid dome has an elliptical base with an elliptical top. This calculator uses inches for measurements.

one US gallon of water = 8.34 pounds. one US gallon of diesel fuel = 7.1 pounds one US gallon of gas = 6 pounds
