# How do you find how many gallons are in a container measuring 16 across 17.5 deep and 49 around?

In order to find how many gallons can fit in the container you must find it's volume. I'm guessing from your measurements that your using a cylinder. To find the volume of a cylinder you multiply the height by Pi by the radius squared.

The radius is half the diameter and Pi is roughly equal to 3.14, so that's all you need to solve the problem.

I would do it for you, but you didn't ask for it, and it seems you wanted to learn it for yourself rather than just get an answer.

### How many gallons of oil are in 8456 pounds?

How to solve this equation:1 Take one gallon of your viscosity
motor oil. ie. 10-30 or 5 weight... and weigh it.
2 pour it into another container and weigh the empty
container.
3 subtract the container from the combined weight.
4. It will weigh around 8 lbs-9.3 lbs. per gallon depending on
thickness of oil.
5. Now take your calculator and hit 8456/ 8.? the weight of one
gallon without container.
6. This will tell you how much the oil weighs. But don't forget
the weight of the large container that will hold the oil roughly
1000 gallons

### What are ideal hatching conditions for brine shrimp?

Brine shrimp are ideally hatched in a conical container of
around 0.25-5 gallons in size. Air should be bubbled in from the
bottom of the container at a rate just fast enough to keep the
brine shrimp suspended in the water, but not so fast as to damage
them. A mild bubbling, not a roaring boiling cauldron. A
tempreature of around 80F, and a salinity of 1.025 will produce
excellent results.

### How many pounds of floatation will a five gallon container provide?

1 gallon = 231 cubic inches = 231/1,728 cubic ft
5 gallons = 5 x 231 / 1,728 cubic ft
The weight of water varies with temperature. At normal
comfortable temperatures,
it's around 62.4 pounds per cubic ft.
Weight of 5 gallons = 5 x 231 x 62.4 / 1,728 = 41.7083
pounds (rounded), minus the weight of the container.
