The online calculator below can be used to calculate the volume and mass of liquid in a partly filled horizontal or sloped cylindrical tank if you know the inside diameter and the level of the liquid the tank. The calculator can also be used for partly filled circular pipes.

Horizontal circular tank - volume content

The calculator outputs

  • the liquid volume in the tank
  • the liquid mass
  • the central angle
  • the chord length
  • the arc length
  • the cross sectional area of both liquid and air
  • the air volume in the tank

The calculator is generic and can be used for common metric and imperial units as long as the values are based on the same units.
