The **Volume of a Spherical Tank** calculator computes the volume of a spherical tank and the amount of 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. **NOTE: NEW DEFAULT UNITS (centimeters).**

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Choose units and enter the following:

- (
**d**) Depth of Contents - (
**D**) Diameter of Spherical Tank - (
**H**) Height of Spherical Tank

**Spherical Tank Volume (V):** The calculator returns the volume of the contents (CV) and the total volume capacity of the tank (CxV) in liters. It also returns the static surface area (sA) of the contents in square meters. However, these can be automatically converted to compatible units via the pull-down menu.

**Related Calculators:**

- Total Volume (full) of the spherical tank
- Weight of the Load in a Spherical Tank
- Volume of a Spherical Shell.
- Mass or Weight of a Spherical Shell.
- Volume Inside of the Spherical Shell
- Volume of Torispherical Head Cylindrical Tank.

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*

The formula for the volume of a sphere is:

The formula for the volume of a sphere cap is:

This calculator let's the user compute the volume of a portion of the tank by subtracting the sphere cap volume from the volume of the total sphere.

- Total or Partial Volume of a Box (Rectangular). For the partial volume, simply use the depth of substance in the container instead of the total depth of the container.
- Total or Partial Load Weight of a Box (Rectangular). For the weight of a partial load, simply use the depth of substance in the container instead of the total depth of the container.
- Volume of a Spherical Container
- Total or Partial Load Weight of a Spherical Container. For the total load weight, simply indicated the same value for the measure depth (D) of the substance to equal twice the radius (R) of the container. (See diagram)
