Finding the liquid volume

Postby louiseisla12 » Tue Aug 07, 2007 8:19 am

If I have a tank that is 450mm high, 500mm wide and 1250mm long, how do I find out how much liquid it will hold in litres. Cheers Louise

1 liter is 1 cubic decimeter, that is 100 mm x 100 mm x 100 mm. (I assume the shape is a rectangular solid).

Easiest way is to express the dimensions in decimeters first, 4.5 dm x 5 dm by 12.5 dm, result is 281.25 dm^3, or 281.25 L.

You could multiply the dimensions in millimeters, and convert after, but the numbers are smaller and can be done roughly in your head using the method above.
