so I am going to buy this tank to store fuel, its 7 inches in dia and 24 inches tall

so this freaking thing should hold how many gallons of fuel ?

let's see, I remember R3.14 x someshit, x 7.44 x 24 inches and i can't remember the rest of the formula

V=Pi R^2H

Where Pi is strawberry rhubarb, R is a plate (squared, so one with four sides), and H is a fork.

So eat the whole thing, and you will get gas.

You're welcome.

It depends on the type of fuel and the temperature.

The volume held in a container of those dimensions should be constant. The mass, and hence energy available, will vary with type & temperature.

Remember, when the fuel combusts it takes up more volume. Make sure you take that into consideration in any equation.

...and wear asbestos underwear. Nomex is good too. Or you could get one of those aluminized suits...that would be good.

Thats what you get for using your stupid made up fantasy units!

Fuc*ing ilbs, and feets and unicorn penises and spanish Galleons and whatever crap you use.

Math wont work with that! You have to sacrifice a virgin at midnight, tell everyone that Evolution is a lie for a few years, and eventually a Gremlin will slip a paper with the answer on in under your pillow, just next to your gun, when you sleep.

Thankfully, you didn't say how we had to sacrifice the virgin.

I guess they dont teach elementary geometry and algebra in Uzbekistan. Funny, I learned that stuff in 7th grade.

Anyway, the formula is simple. You take the diameter of the inside cylinder and multiply it by pi, divide it by the kw/hr usage of your last electrical bill, multiply it by the torque in ft/lbs of your truck and subtract the sum by the number of flop/s your processor can process in 45.86 minutes. Done!

Just whatever you do, make sure you dont


If you dont know how to calculate the volume of a cylinder, how are you supposed to convert the lb. reading of your crane scale to the lbf. measurement scale for use in your Majid reports?

For extra credit, calculate the remaining volume as a function of height of a cylinder... lying on its side. For extra extra credit, add hemispherical end-caps on both ends.

That little problem still gives me nightmares.
