How about this plan: We'll explain how to solve the problem,
and then you go ahead and get the answer on your own.
The pipe is a cylinder.
The volume of the cylinder is: (pi) times (radius of the pipe)2 x (length of the pipe)
(Remember that the radius is 1/2 of the diameter.)
With that formula, you can find the volume of any length of pipe. You know the
diameter in inches, so the volume will be in cubic inches.
One gallon is exactly 231 cubic inches. Find what the length of the pipe has to be
in order to have a volume of 231 cubic inches.
Go to it ! You can do it !
The dimensions for a 20 gallon drum is 21.75 inches high, 18.25 inches inside diameter, and 18.75 inches outside diameter. It can accommodate a load of 199 pounds.
Diameter 24 inches, height 34.5 inches
Circumference = pi*diameter 2 = pi*diameter Divide both sides of the equation by pi: 2/pi = diameter diameter = 0.6366197724 inches radius is half of the diameter: radius = 0.3183098862 inches

The equation for circumference is C=(Pi)*d or 3.14 times the diameter. Therefore, you answer would be 6.625*3.14=20.8025 inches.
A 55 gallon drum is just a cylinder and, as such, the volume can be determined by the formula ¶r2h (Pi times radius squared times height). According to Wikipedia, standard 55 gallon drums are 22.5 inches in diameter and 33.5 inches high. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/55_gallon_drum The equation is thus 3.14 * 11.25^2 * 33.5. That comes out to 13313 cubic inches or 7.7 cubic feet.
To get the circumference of a circle, the equation is pi * diameter. So, in this case, it is 2.5 * pi (3.14), or roughly 7.85. So, the circumference of the circle is about 7.85 inches.
A one gallon milk jug is 10 inches high. It weighs 63 grams. The cap diameter is 1.76 inches. The opening is 1 1/8 inches.
A 100 US gallon sphere will have a diameter of 35.335 inches (just short of 3 feet diameter).
The inches in a diameter = 2 X inches in the radius. Or, inches in a diameter = inches in circumference / pi
The drum should measure 23 inches diameter 36 inches height These are all external measurements.
What is a "8 inch ball" ? Is 8 inches the diameter ? Then its diameter is 8 inches. Is 8 inches the radius ? Then its diameter is 16 inches. Is 8 inches the circumference ? Then its diameter is about 2.546 inches (rounded).
The diameter of a softball is about 4 1/2 inches in diameter. The diameter of a softball is about 4 1/2 inches in diameter.
I'd say 12 inches. it's a guestimate but I'm sure I am pretty close.
This cylinder has a volume of 0.951 US gallon.
Given an atom with diameter of 100 picometers, the diameter in inches is 4 nano inches.
One foot of water in a round pool with a diameter of six feet is about 211Â½ gallons.
Diameter = 117/pi inches
The circumference of a circle, C, is pi*diameter. If 52 is the diameter, then the equation becomes: C = 3.14159 * 52 or C = 163.36 inches.
Twelve inches is a length. It can be a diameter, but if it is a diameter, you would simply say 'The circle is 12 inches diameter'. So; how big is it - it is 12 inches.
14 inches in diameter
Completely filled, (pi x radius squared x length in inches)/231 cu in per gallon = gallons = 13.06122449, if the inside diameter of the pipe is 2 inches. =========== Of course that assumes that the inside diameter is exactly 2 inches. For real pipes, the actual inside diameter of a pipe depends on the "schedule" of the pipe. For a "nominal" pipe diameter of 2 inches, the outside diameter will be 2.375 inches and the wall thickness could vary from .065 inches (schedule 5) to .343 inches (schedule 160) meaning that the actual inside diameter could vary from 2.245 inches to 1.689 inches.
A circle 14 inches in diameter has a radius of 7 inches, and a circle having a radius of 7 inches has a diameter of 14 inches.
One gallon is 231 cubic inches.
