1 Gallon of Water =
231 Cubic Inches (CI)
8.35 lbs
1 Cubic Foot of Water =
62.5 lbs
7.481 Gallons
1728 Cubic
Atmospheric Pressure at Sea Level =
14.7psi
1psi will raise a column of water =
2.304'
Column of water 1' high will exert =
.434psi
Maximum Theoretical Lift =
33.8'
Maximum Lift =
22.6‟
1” of Hg =
.5psi
Rectangular Container Estimation:
C = Capacity in Gallons
L = Length in Feet
W = Width in Feet
H = Height in Feet
7.481 = Gallons per Cubic Foot
Example #1
: C = 10'L x 20'W x 5'H x 7.481
C = 7,481 Gallons
Estimating a Circular Container:
C = Capacity in Gallons
6 = Mathematically calculated constant
D = Diameter
H = Height in Feet
Example #2
: A cylindrical tank 30' in diameter and 15' in height. What is the capacity in gallons?
C = 6 (30)2 x 15
C = (6 x 900) x 15
C = 5400 x 15
C = 81,000 Gallons
