The Properties of a Barrel Calculator is used to calculate the volume of a barrel, using the following equation:
Volume of a Barrel
D is the large diameter of the barrel
d is the small diameter of the barrel
h is the height of the barrel
You may also optionally specify the material the barrel is constructed from to calculate the mass. The mass is calculated based on the volume of the barrel and the density of the material. The density of the material is derived from its specific gravity. Specific Gravities are available for a variety of metals, plastics and woods.
This calculator allows a user to specify English (inches, feet) or Metric (centimeters, meters) as possible units of measure for the diameters and height of the barrel. NOTE: All lengths are assumed to be of the same unit of measurement.
