sooo...

V = (3.14)(36)(34)

V = 3843.36 cubic inches

since 1 cubic inch is 0.004329 gallons

V = 3843.36(0.004329)

V = 16.63790544 gallons

a more precise answer could be calculated given a more accurate value of ð

Your math is off..He's talking 6" Diameter, not Radius... Therefore it would have a Radius of 3" so:stinkynathan said:V = ð(r^2)h

sooo...

V = (3.14)(36)(34)

V = 3843.36 cubic inches

since 1 cubic inch is 0.004329 gallons

V = 3843.36(0.004329)

V = 16.63790544 gallons

V = (3.14)(9)(34)

V = 960.84 cubic inches

V = 4.16 Gallons

Which sounds about right since Air Ride's new tanks are 7" in diameter and 34" long and they are 5 gallons. Also, please remember that these calculations are based on 6" being the INNER diameter, as opposed to the 6" OUTER diameter I'm sure you are referring to...

I also recommend that you get your tank leak checked and pressure tested by a reliable testing facility. Just because you welded some steel together doesn't mean it will hold air properly.
