## Cylinder Capacity Formula

The following formula is used to calculate a cylinder capacity.

V = pi*r^2*h

- Where V is the cylinder capacity
- r is the radius of the inner lining of the cylinder
- h is the hight of the inner portion of the cylinder

## Cylinder Capacity Definition

**What is a cylinder capacity? **

Cylinder capacity, also known as tank capacity, is a measure of the internal volume of a cylinder or tank.

In other words, this is how much space is inside the cylinder that is available for storage.

## Example Problem

**How to calculate cylinder capacity? **

The following example outlines the steps necessary to calculate the inside capacity of a cylinder.

First, determine the radius of the inner lining of the cylinder or tank. In this case, the radius is found to be 4 feet.

Next, determine the height of the cylinder. For this example, the height is measured to be 20 feet.

Finally, calculate the cylinder capacity using the formula above:

V = pi*r^2*h

V = 3.14159*4^2*20

V = 1005.308 ft^3 (cubic feet)
