Volume of a cylinder on it's side

I have a fuel tank which I can measure with a dipstick marked in cm. I would like to convert the dip to a volume in that tank. How do I make a chart showing the volume of the tank at any given cm dipped.?
The dimensions of the tank are 121 cm dia x 216 cm long.

Please convert 19.5 cm long by 13 cm wide by. 3.5 cm high

I assume you are trying to find to volume (of a container).
Volume of a rectangular prism is length x width x height.
In this case, 19.5 x 13 x 3.5 or 887.25 cm^3.
Good luck.

What is volume in litres of a bag 230mm dia x 450mm long?

You give only two values for the dimensions, so it must be a cylinder with a radius r=230/2 mm= 115 mm= 11.5 cm
and a height of h= 450 mm =45 cm
The volume for your right circular cylinder is V=PI*(r^2)*h=PI*(11.5^2)*45 cm^3=?
Divide the result by 1000 to convert the volume to liters (1 L =1000 mL=1000 cm^3)

Find the volume of a cylinder the radius is 8cm the height is 6cm what is the volume

Volume of right cylinder is
V=(Area of base)*height.
If cylinder is circular Area of base =PI*radius^2=Pi*r^2
Volume is V=Pi*(8^2)*6 cm^2
Finish the calculation.

The base of a cylinder has a diameter of 6.2 cm. The cylinder is 18 cm tall. What is the volume of the cylinder?

When you have to deal with problems of this sort, you usually are given recipes or mathematical formulas which you apply to find the result. It so happens that for the volumes of cylinders, the formula to use is
Volume = Area of the base times the height=Ab*h
If the cylinder is circular, then the area of the base is that of a disk, Ab=PI*r^2`where r is the radius.
In your case, you are given the diameter (twice the radius) and the height.
Volume =PI*h*(6.2/2)^2, the unit being cm^2

To type in the value of PI, press [2nd] [^] (the latter is key under CLEAR, and above the division sign.
To raise a number to power 2 (to square it), use the key marked x with a superscript 2, or x with a raised 2.
After you have typed in all necessary ingredients in the formula, press the [ENTER] key and the calculator will give you the result.

Now, it is your turn to do some mathematics.

Can you please convert 188cm x 46cm into feet for me please

No, since cm x cm measures an area, while feet measures length. To get an area, you will need ft^2.
188cm x 46cm is 8648 cm^2 . One foot is exactly 30.48 cm, so this is about 9.31 ft^2.

How do you convert cm/hr to ml/mn. The cm here is centimeter and not cubic centimeter. Is this possible?

1ml is equal to 1 cubic centimetre, a centimetre is a measurement of area whereas a mililitre is a measurement of volume, they aren't interchangeable.
cm^3/h to ml/mn simply requires the first figure to be divided by 60

Hello, can you advise please how many troy ounces there wold be by converting from 32805 cubic inches

Sorry, this is not possible. The troy ounce is a measure for mass, 1 tr.oz. = 31,1034768 g and the cubic inch measures volume, 1 in³ = 16,387064 cm³. A conversion from one to the other would always need a reference to a substance with known density.

3.14x20cmsx25cmsx25cms = what is the answer to this in cubic metres

You can do this in two ways.
  1. Calculate the volume in cubic cm, then convert to cubic m. Since there are 100 cm in one m, there are 100^3 cubic cm in a cubic m.
  2. Convert the dimensions to meters and then multiply.
The two methods will give you the same result, 0.03925

Calculation of cylinder capacity

volume of a cylinder = height time Pi r squared

dia = 43cm so radius = 21.5cm

so 109 x 3.14 x 21.5squared = 158209.69 cubic cm

1 cubic cm = 0.001 litre

so 158.20969 litres

with a more correct value for Pi is actually 158.28993 Litres
