Volume of oil in a tank 1999-04-17
From Lars Waldemarsson:
My problem is to get an equation for the depth of the oil in a gastank formed like a cylinder. The cylinder is in a horizontal position and by a stick you will be able to get the depth of the oil in the tank. All I need is an exmaple which I can build on. By this equation you will be able to get the volume of the oil if you know the depth.
