Is there any way to calculate the volume of the following tnaks

Vertical Tank With Spherical Top and bottom.

horizontal Tank with spherical Ends

I think this is related to some sort of Enigineering mathematics .

so Plz Engineers Mathematicians and Excel Experts Heklp Needed.

For a vertical cylinder shape tank;

(Inside diameter in inches X Inside diameter in inches) / 1029.4 = bbls per foot
(a bbls in this case is = to 42 gallons)

OR

(radius in inches squared X 3.14 X 12)/231 = gallons per foot

I have other formulas for horizontal tank but I can't get to it until I get to work in the morning

The full volume would be the same for both, but if the tank is 1/3, 1/4, 1/5 full....the formula I gave you can be used for figuring partial volumes for a vertical spherical ended (a circle) tank. But yes partial volumes for a horizontal spherical ended tank is very different from vertical because its laying on its side instead of standing on its end
