# Partial Volume in a Horizontal Ellipse Tank - On Edge

Calculate the amount of liquid in a partially filled horizontal elliptical tank/container that sits on its edge. In this shape, the height of the tank is larger than its width. This calculator uses inches for measurements.

##### Approximate weight of Fuel or Water
```one US gallon of water = 8.34 pounds.
one US gallon of diesel fuel = 7.1 pounds
one US gallon of gas = 6 pounds
```

#### Calculator

1. enter the width of the vertical elliptical tank in inches
2. the height of the tank in inches
3. the length of the tank in inches
4. the depth of the liquid inside the tank in inches
5. the weight of the liquid in pounds per US gallon

#### Results

1. the volume of the vertical elliptical tank in cubic inches
2. the volume of the tank in cubic feet
3. the volume of the tank in cubic metres
4. the total amount of liquid the tank can hold in US gallons
5. the amount of liquid inside the tank in US gallons
6. the amount of liquid inside the tank in Imperial gallons
7. the amount of liquid inside the tank in litres
8. the amount of liquid inside the tank in cubic feet
9. the weight of the liquid inside the tank based on lbs/gal US
10. the amount of liquid it will take to fill this tank in US gallons

##### Formula
```L(HW/4)cos-¹(1-2d/H)-(1-2d/H)√4d/H-d²/H²)
where V is the volume of the tank
L the length of the tank
H the height of the tank
W the width of the tank
d the height of the liquid inside the tank
```
