The **Pipe Volume** calculator * Section of Pipe * computes the volume of a pipe (V), based on the interior diameter(d) of circular conduit or pipe and the length (l) of the pipe.

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

- (
**d**) This is the inner diameter of the pipe. - (
**l**) This is the length of the pipe.

**Volume of Pipe (V):** The calculator returns the volume in gallons. However, this can be automatically converted to compatible units via the pull-down menu.

#### General Plumbing Calculators

- Rolling Offsets (Run) – The Rolling Offset (Run) function computes the run length a rolling offset based on the offsets and fittings. (see diagram).
- Rolling Offsets (Travel) – The Rolling Offset (Travel) function computes the travel pipe length a rolling offset based on the offsets and fittings. (see diagram).
- Diagonal of a Square - This is a simple calculation to assist in computing the diagonal of a square.
- Diagonal of a Box - This computes the length of the diagonal of a box (
**T**) based on sides of length**R, S**and**U**. - Counting the number of smaller diameter pipes are needed to match the flow of larger pipes.
- Flow Rate - This computes flow rate based on the total volume and the time it took to accumulate.
- Pipe Flow Volume - This computes the total volume from a pipe based on the flow rated and the duration of flow.

#### The Math / Science

The equation for the volume of a pipe is:

- V= π⋅(d/2)
^{2}⋅l

where:

**V**= interior volume of a section of pipe**d**= inner diameter**l**= length of pipe
