**How do you find the volume of a cylindrical container?**

The formula for the volume of a cylinder is V=Bh or V=πr2h . The radius of the cylinder is 8 cm and the height is 15 cm. Substitute 8 for r and 15 for h in the formula V=πr2h .

### How do you find the volume of a hollow rectangle?

Remember, the equation for volume is V = length x width x height, so simply multiply all three sides together to get your volume.

### How to calculate the volume of fluid in a pipe?

The volume of fluid in a pipe can be found given the inner diameter of the pipe and the length. To estimate pipe volume use the following formula: volume = π × radius 2 × length. Find the diameter and length of the pipe in inches or millimeters. Use our feet and inches calculator to calculate a length in inches or millimeters.

**How do you calculate the diameter of a pipe?**

Calculate the inner diameter of the pipe by measuring the distance from one inside edge, across the center, and to the opposite inside edge. Use the same units (inches or millimeters) to measure the length of pipe. Calculate the radius of the pipe through its diameter. To get the radius, divide the diameter by 2.

#### How big is a gallon of water pipe?

There are 231 cubic inches in 1 U.S. gallon. Let ServiceTitan’s water pipe volume calculator take the guesswork out of the equation when trying to determine the volume of water in pipes measured in gallons. For common pipe dimensions, contractors can also refer to a general pipe volume chart online.

#### How is the volume of a shape calculated?

Volumes of many shapes can be calculated by using well-defined formulas. In some cases, more complicated shapes can be broken down into simpler aggregate shapes, and the sum of their volumes is used to determine total volume.
