# Cylindrical or Rectangular Tank Capacity Calculator

getcalc.com's **fuel or water tank capacity calculator** is an online basic geometry tool & formulas to measure the capacity of cylindrical or rectangular tank, in US customary & metric (SI) units (Gallons & Liters).

## Steps to Find Capacity of a Rectangular Tank

The step by step workout for how to find what is the capacity of a rectangular tank. Students may use this tank capacity calculator to generate work with steps for any other similar input values.__Workout :__

step 1 Address the formula, input parameters and values

Length = 10 in

Width = 5 in

Height = 8 in

step 2 Input Conversion for length, width, height

Convert in to m all input values

Length = 10 x 0.0254 = 0.254 m

Width = 5 x 0.0254 = 0.127 m

Height = 8 x 0.0254 = 0.2032 m

step 3 Apply the values in volume formula

Volume V = length x width x height

= 0.254 x 0.127 x 0.2032 m³

Volume = 0.0066 m³

step 4 Capacity of Rectangular Tank in Liters

Capacity in Liters = (Volume in cubic meter) x 1000

= 0.0066 x 1000

Capacity in liters = 6.5548

step 5 Capacity of Rectangular Tank in Gallons

Capacity in Gallons = (Capacity in liters) / 3.7854

= 6.5548/3.7854

Capacity in Gallons = 1.7316

## Tank Capacity & Formulas

**Tank Capacity** is a measure of how much maximum Gallons or Liters of fuel or water a cylindrical or rectangular tank can contain, based on its volume space. K-12 students may refer the below formulas of rectangular or cylinderical tank to know what are all the input parameters are being used to find how much gallons or liters of liquid a tank can hold.

### Problems on Finding Capacity of Rectangular or Cylinderical Tank
