Hi everyone, I am not really very good in mathematics and I am not a student. So I need help.... I have tried to derived a general equation for finding the volume of a horizontal cylinder given length & diameter of the cylinder, and the height of the liquid inside, all three terms as variables. I am planning to use the equation to make a simple basic program to calculate the volume of the horizontal cylindrical tank without the need to look for a factor from table which uses ratio of diameter and height of the liquid. Will please anyone help me out.
