Volume of a tree 2019-12-19
From Maria:
I have trees for sale. I need to calculate the volume of a tree from base which is wider than the stem.The base will be used for the making of hurleys, similar to hockey sticks so the wider base is crucial.

The volume of fluid in a tank 2012-09-06
From Dave:
I have vertical round flat bottom tanks of various dimensions. It is easy to find total volume but I would like to know how to figure out the coversion factor to go from how many centimeters of liquid is in the tank to the number of total cubic meters of volume. So if my float gauge on the tank says there is 50 cm of fluid in the tank, how many cubic meter of total volume is there?
