Some plumbing calculations 2006-07-02
From Steve:

I am preparing to write my journeyman plumber ticket and would appreciate answer/solutions to the following math questions along with the formula to solve them

  1. A range boiler is 16 in. in diameter and 4 ft high. How many gallons will it hold ?
  2. What would the weight in Kg be if the pipe was .4 of a meter in diameter and it was 8.6 m in length
  3. An oil storage tank is 4 m in diameter and 6 m high. How , many liters of oil can be stored

I thank you in advance for your help ... all math books I have are US and nothing is Metric
