. does this mean pie, or 3.14 X radius squared, X the height? If so please use a standard 55 gal barrel (1' R & 3' H) for example? Thanks, Jim 

Hi Jim, You are correct about pi, it is approximately 3.1416. If the barrel has a one foot radius (r = 1) and a three foot height (h = 3) then the volume is
One cubic foot is 7.48 gallons(US) so 9.43 cubic feet is
I would measure your barrel again. I measured one I have and the diameter was approximately 22 inches so the radius is 11 inches which is 0.91667 feet. I also got a height of 33 inches or 2.75 feet. Thus I get, for a volume
