`weight = 885 * [pi* "d" ^2/2 *( "l" - "d" /3)]`

Enter a value for all fields

The **Spherocylinder (Capsule) Load Weight** calculator computes the weight of the loaded in capsule shaped container, also known as a spherocylinder. *Capsule or Spherocylinder Container*

Common Mean Densities (mD)

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

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

- (
**l**) - Length - (
**d**) - Diameter - (
**mD**) - Density of contents of the capsule.

**Capsule Load Weight (W):** The calculator returns the load weight in pounds. However, this can be automatically converted to other mass or weight units via the pull-down menu.

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

The load weight is measure by calculating the volume and then multiplying volume by the mean density of the substance being carried. See diagram

- Load Weight of a Conic Cylinder
- Volume of a Capsule (Spherocylinder)
- Load Weight of a Capsule (Spherocylinder)
- 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)
