Assuming: an 8 inch inside diameter, 1 gallon of water weighs 8.345404 pounds, 231 cubic inches of water to the gallon, volume of cylinder = Pi * radius^2 * height volume=3.14 * 4^2 * (4000 * 12) volume = 3.14 * 16 * 48,000 = 2,411,520 cubic inches 2,411,520 cubic inches of water when full. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- A 4000 foot cylinder/pipe with an 8 inch inside diameter, if full of water, will contain 10,439.48 gallons of water weighing a total of 87,121.68 pounds or 43.56 tons.
