# Volume of a partial right cylinder Calculator

## Calculates the volume and lateral, bottom and top area of a overturned partial right cylinder given the radius and height. | ||

[1-10] /10 | Disp-Num |

- 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! - from Keisan
- Thank you for your advice.

We fixed it.

- Purpose of use
- To calculate various volumes
- 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.

- Purpose of use
- calculating volume of narrowboat fuel tank

- Purpose of use
- calculating diesel left inside my fuel tank as my guage dosent have readings

- Purpose of use
- calculating volume in partially filled sewage pipe

- Purpose of use
- Calculating volumes for vessel explosion protection system.

- Purpose of use
- Quick calculation
- 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
- curiosity about mathematics
- Bug report
- With radius 1, height 1 and length 1

lateral area and volume should be 3.1416 and NOT 1.5707 !!
