The Volume of a Spherical Tank calculator computes the volume of a spherical tank and the volume substance (liquid or loose granular) in the tank based on the depth of the substance and the size of the spherical container defined by its diameter and height.
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose units and enter the following:
Spherical Tank Volume (V): The calculator returns the volume of the contents and the total volume capacity are returned in liters. It also returns the surface area (sA) of the contents in square meters. However, these can be automatically converted to compatible units via the pull-down menu.
The spherical tank volume formula uses the size of the tank, defined by its inner radius (R), and the depth of the contained material (D), to calculate the volume of the contained substance.CONTAINER SHAPES Conic Cylinder Capsule Shaped Box Container Spherical Tank
