The Conic Cylinder Tank Volume calculator computes the volume of a cylindrical tank with tapered (cone frustum) ends. Geometrically, this is a cylinder of any length (l) with a conic frustum on both ends. Conic Cylinder There are three radii and three lengths. See diagram.
INSTRUCTION: Choose units and enter the following:
Volume of a Conic Cylinder Tanker (V): The calculator returns the volume in gallons. However, this can be automatically converted to other volume units (e.g. liters) via the pull-down menu. Note: d2 and d3 are often the same., and so are l2 and l3.
Geometrically, this is a central cylinder, with two frustums of a cones. The frustum of a cone is a section of a cone with two parallel planes defining the top and bottom of the section.
