Best Answer

The volume of liquid in a cylinder is directly proportional to its height. And the height can easily be scaled and etched onto the side of a cylinder.

and fluid containers creates statics voltage as fluid moves inside of it. so there should not have corners ( it reseves static voltage) spark can create through the corners.

Why is a cylinder the best shape for storing liquids?

For storing large numbers of containers I think a rectangular shape is more efficient because you can place them side by side with no wasted space between them like you would have with cylinders. I think it depends on how big the containers are (cylinders are easier to roll) and how much space you have, what type of liquid is to be stored etc. as to which shape would be best.
