How to find out the volume of a cylinder.
Work out the volume of a cylinder using feet and inches.
Calculate volume of cylinders or tanks.
Results in either cubic feet, cubic inches, UK gallons or US gallons.
Volume of a cylinder = pi x radius squared x height
Cylinder Volume = π r2 h
Cylinder Volume = 3.14159265 x radius 2 x height
1 US gallon = 231 cubic inches
1 Imperial gallon = 1 UK gallon = 277.419 cubic inches
As you can see from the steps above, calculating a cylinder's volume is easy as pie.
You may be surprised to learn that there are many different ways to calculate this simple measure of space and each method will produce slightly different results.
But now that we’ve walked through it, calculating your tank or container’s volumetric capacity should be no problem at all!
