Purpose of use
To calculate the effective contents of an oil tank, for configuring the tank contents gauge. The ultrasonic gauge appears to use an approximation of the exact calculation. Knowing the volume of oil in the tank, I could change the diameter value until the gauge read the calculated volume of the contents.

Purpose of use
Gives me a good indication of how much heating oil is left in the tank

Comment/Request
Please correct indicated equation in "lateral volume of a overturned partial right cylinder".
In the root symbol it should be "h(2r-h)" instead of "h(2-h)".

Thank you!

We fixed it.

Bug report
The calculations for the Volume of a partial right cylinder appear to be correct, however, the formulae given for the Lateral Area (F) and the Top Area (T), I believe, are missing a radius term, and should be h(2r-h) under the square root (radicand) on both of them. Great site though, thanks for setting it up.

Comment/Request
Just a comment on the previous 'bug report', with radius=height=length=1 the volume should indeed be pi/2. The previous user was confusing the radius and diameter. With height=2 the volume = pi

Purpose of use
Bug report
With radius 1, height 1 and length 1
lateral area and volume should be 3.1416 and NOT 1.5707 !!
