The Height of a Cylinder calculator computes the height (h) of a right circular cylinder from the volume (V) and radius (r) of the base (see diagram).
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose units and enter the following:
Height (h): The calculator returns the height (h) in meters. However, this can be automatically converted to many other length units (e.g. inches) via the pull-down menu.

For example, say you have a cylinder shaped water tank, and you believe you have 60 gallons in it. You can measure the radius of the tank (e.g. 16"), and enter the radius and 60 gallons as the volume into this calculator. It will tell you that the height of the liquid should be 17.233 inches (17 1/4"). You can then use a dipstick to measure the actual depth of liquid and confirm the amount. If the dipstick measure a different height, you have a different volume of liquid. In that case, use the radius and height in the calculator (
