there is no chemichal formula for paint. it is a solution (homogeneous mixture)

Depends on the volume of the can.

Work out its radius by 0.5/2*pi and use the volume formula: pi*radius^2*height. It should work out to about 0.006 cubic m.

Its called the surface area, not volume. Volume is inside. You want the outside, like if you wanted to paint it (instead of fill it up). For each 3-D object, there will be a different formula, so I can't help you there. :P

Paint thinner is primarily a mixture of aliphatic hydrocarbons.

Volume = pi*radius2*height

You would have to add a darker color, or take it to a paint store and have them add colorant. Trying to change paint from its original mixed formula is not a good idea. All paint brands require different formula's for the same colors. So if you were to try and change a color from its original formula by adding a different color of paint, it would be impossible to match the new color if you were to run out before finishing.

It is an extremely complex mixture

It depends on the application process and what are you painting. Mils can vary based on how you apply the paint and with what applicator. It is not based on the solids percentage. This may create a variable that cannot be included in a fixed formula. To measure paint that is already dry you can use a mil gauge. For more info on applying paint go to the appended website. (Added) That's correct when you have only the percentage solids by weight, however when you apply the paint correctly, at the wet mil thickness specified by the manufacturer, you can figure the dry mil thickness by multiplying the wet mil thickness (often 4 mils for ordinary house paint) and the percent solids by volume of the paint. To measure the wet paint thickness, which you should do while applying to ensure that it is being applied at the correct thickness, use a wet mil gauge. For example, 4 mils with a paint that is 25% solids by volume will dry down to 1 mil thickness. A high build elastomeric coating applied at 10 mils at the same 25% solids will dry down to 2.5 mils.

Ben Moore does, they have the exact formula for it.

No meaningful answer can be given, it would depend on the size of the ceiling and the type of paint required.

Painters.

paint industry is the only industry where all the calculations while preparation are carried out in terms of mass units i.e. in Kgs but products are sold in volume units i.e. in liters. Therefore materials for formulations of paint should be of low bulk density i.e.it should have more volume and less mass so that paint formulator will get profit by increasing volume and reducing weight.Thus from bulk density he can predict which material is profitable for paint formulation.Less is the bulk density more is the profit for formulator.

He has not given that information.

Yes, but be sure the kilz is completely dry before applying the paint. The Kilz formula is such that it has no effect on the application of water borne paint, when it is completely dry.
