`Weight = f( R , D ,"water")`

Enter a value for all fields

The **Load Weight of a Spherical Tank** calculator computes the weight of the chosen substance (S: see list below) in a spherical container based on the depth of the substance (**D**) and the size of the spherical container defined by its radius (**R**). Note: in a spherical tank, the radius (**R**) is half the overall diameter of the tank.

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

- (
**R**) Radius of the interior of the spherical tank. - (
**D**) Depth of the material in the spherical tank. - (
**S**) Choose a substance from the pull-down list.

**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.

*Spherical 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. The Mass is computed as follows:

Mass = Volume * mean density of substance

The formula for the volume of a sphere is:

This calculator let's the user compute the volume of a portion of the tank.
