The **Mass of a Spherical Tank Contents** calculator computes the mass or weight of substance (liquid or loose granular) contained in a spherical container based on the depth (d) of the substance, the radius of the spherical container (r) and the mean density (mD) of the substance.

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

- (
**d**) Depth of liquid in the spherical tank. - (
**r**) Radius of the interior of the spherical tank. - (
**mD**) Mean density of the substance in the tank (default for water)

**Mass or Weight of Spherical Tank (M):** The mass of the sphere is returned in kilograms. However this can be automatically converted to other mass and weight units via the pull-down menu.

Mean Density of Common Substances

- 1,000 kg/m
^{3}- Pure Water - 1,022 kg/m
^{3}- Sea water - 1,037 kg/m
^{3}- Milk - 860 kg/m
^{3}- Olive Oil - 885 kg/m
^{3}- Diesel Fuel - 870 - 920 kg/m
^{3}- Crude Oil - 890 kg/m
^{3}- Fuel Oil - 789 kg/m
^{3}- Ethanol - 737 kg/m
^{3}- Gasoline (petrol) - 1,442 kg/m
^{3}- Cement Slurry

The spherical tank mass 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 in the spherical tank. - It then computes the mass by multiplying the volume by the mean density (
**mD**) to provide an estimate of the mass or weight of the contents of the container.
