# How much water volume does a 1.75 inch hose carry per foot of hose?

## Answer

###### Wiki User

###### July 28, 2008 4:15PM

Volume of a cylinder = r2 x 3.1416 x L where r = radius of cylinder and L = length.

For a 1.5 inch diameter hose 1 foot long, the volume is (.75)2x 3.1416 x 12 = 21.2 in3

Volume in gallons is 21.3 in3 / 231 in3/gallon = .0918 gallons

Volume in ounces is .0918 x 128 oz/gal = 11.75 oz

### How do you calculated how much cubic foot of water a hose need?

I assume you want to find out how much water fits in the hose.
Treat the hose as a cylinder - that should be a good approximation,
even when you bend it. Measure the length and the interior
diameter. Divide the diameter by 2 to get the radius. Convert
everything to feet, and finally use the formula for a cylinder to
get the volume.

### How much water does 100 ft of five eigths water hose hold?

Area Calculation
The area of the hose section is equal to pi (3.1416) multiplied
by the square of the radius. Garden hose comes in a variety of
sizes, from 1/2-inch to 1-inch. 3/4-inch hose is typical. Using
that as an example, the square of the radius (.375 multiplied by
.375) equals .140625. That result multiplied times pi equals
.4417875 square inches.
Volume
Calculation
To calculate the volume, the length of the hose must first be
converted to the same measurement standard. 100 feet of garden hose
is 1,200 inches. 1,200 times .4417875 equals 530.145 cubic
inches.
Volume
Conversion
To state the volume in a more meaningful manner, cubic inches
should be converted to a more common measure of liquid volume. One
gallon of water contains 231 cubic inches. So, the 100-foot
long, 3/4-inch diameter garden hose holds 2.3 gallons of
water (530.145 divided by 231).

### How many gallons of water in a two and one half inch fire hose?

That's kinda gonna depend on how long the hose is. Without doing
any figures
or math at all, we're pretty sure that a one-foot-long piece of
2-1/2" hose will
hold more water than a 100-foot-long piece.
In fact, when we do some figures, we can tell you that it'll
hold one gallon of water
in every 47.1 inch length of hose.

### How much water is in a fire hose?

There are many different types of fire hoses, but the type
you're probably picturing is called an "attack hose" that's the
hose that takes water from the pumping system to the nozzle. It's
the business end of the operation.
The typical attack hose is 1530 cm long and has an inner
diameter of as much as 7.6 cm.
The volume of a hose is the length of the hose, times the area
of its circular cross-section.
With an inner diameter of 7.6 cm, an attack hose has a
cross-section of πr2=3.14*3.8^2= 45.34 square cm. So, the volume of
water in a full attack hose is 1530*45.34= 69370.2 cubic cm.
That's about 18.32 gallons.

### How much water can a 50 ft section of 3 inch hose hold in gallons?

A water hose is a cylinder, and since the volume of a cylinder
is pi*r^2*height, we can calculate the volume of the water hose by
finding the radius and height. A 3 inch hose has a radius of 1.5
inches, and 50 ft is equal to 600 inches, so 1.5^2 is 2.25, and
2.25*600 is 1,350. Finally we multiply by Pi to get approximately
4,239 cubic inches. Since 1 cubic inch is equal to 0.00432 gallons,
there are 18.3506 gallons.
