`Volume = pi* "d" ^2/2 *( "l" - "d" /3)`

Enter a value for all fields

The **Volume of Capsule Tank** calculator computes the volume of a capsule shaped container, * Capsule Shaped Tank * also known as a spherocylinder based on the dimensions of the tank. See diagram.

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

- (
**D**) Diameter of the central cylinder. - (
**L**) Total Length of the capsule

**Capsule Tank Volume (V):** The calculator returns the volume in gallons. However this can be automatically converted to other volume unite (e.g. liters, cubic meters) via the pull-down menu.

*CONTAINER SHAPES** Conic Cylinder** Capsule Shaped** Box Container* * Spherical Tank*

Geometrically, a capsule is a central cylinder with hemispheres (half spheres) on each end. The volume is simply the sum of the volume of the central cylinder and the complete sphere. Both ends added create a complete 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)
