QUANTITY OF WATER IN CIRCULAR TANK

The quantity of water calculation in a circular tank is very easy and simple just need your little concentration. For your better understanding lets solve this example.

Example:

Suppose we have a circular water thank having a diameter of 3.5 feet and the depth of the circular water tank is 12 feet. Calculate the quantity of water will store in this tank?


Given Data:

Length                      = 12 feet

diameter of tank  (D)  = 3.5 feet

water quantity            = ?

Solution:

volume of tank

= 3.14 D2 / 4  x  length 

= 3.14 (3.52) /4 x 12

= 0.785 x 12.25 x 12

= 115.395 cft

 

In Liters:

(1 cft = 28.7 liters)

= 115.395  x  28.7

= 3311.83 liters

 

In Gallons:

(1 US Gallon = 3.785 liters)(1 UK Gallon = 4.55 liters)

To convert it into gallons

= 3311.83 / 3.785

= 875  Gallons of water
