# How to Calculate the Gallons of Propane in a Spherical Tank

## What is the formula for calculating the volume of a spherical propane tank?

How many gallons of propane does a spherical tank hold if it is filled to 60% of its capacity?

## Formula for Calculating the Volume

The volume of a spherical propane tank can be calculated using the formula: Volume = (4/3)*π*r^3, where r is the radius of the tank.

## Calculating Gallons of Propane in the Tank

The tank can hold approximately 8.48 gallons of propane when filled to 60% of its capacity.

To calculate the volume of a spherical propane tank, you need to use the formula Volume = (4/3)*π*r^3, where r is the radius of the tank. In this case, if the tank is filled to 60% of its capacity, it can hold approximately 8.48 gallons of propane.

The volume of the tank can be calculated by determining the radius of the tank based on its diameter. From there, the volume can be converted to gallons using the appropriate conversion factor.

Understanding how to calculate the volume of a spherical tank and convert it to gallons can help in determining the capacity and efficiency of propane storage.
