Enter the radius (ft) and the depth (ft) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Dryer Capacity. 

Dryer Capacity Formula

DC = pi * r ^2 * d


  • DC is the Dryer Capacity (ft^3)
  • r is the radius (ft)
  • d is the depth (ft)

To calculate Dryer Capacity, square the dryer radius, then multiply by pi and the dryer depth.

How to Calculate Dryer Capacity?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Dryer Capacity.

  1. First, determine the radius (ft). 
  2. Next, determine the depth (ft). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = DC = pi * r ^2 * d.
  4. Finally, calculate the Dryer Capacity.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

radius (ft) = 1.5

depth (ft) = 2
