 ```Hello and thanks for the question. The volume of a cylinder is calculated as follows: radius of the base squared x Pi x the length of the cylinder. If the circumference of the cylinder is 80 inches, that means the radius of the base is: Circumference / (2*Pi) = Radius Radius = 12.73 We can now calculated the volume of the cylinder: 12.73 inches ^2 * Pi * 160 inches = volume Volume = 81,487.33 cubic inches There are 231 cubic inches in a US gallon. This means that your tank will hold: 352.759 gallons Additional Links: This site will calculate the capacity of a cylinder for you: http://cowan.bendnet.com/volcalc/CylinderH.htm This site allows you to convert from cubic inches to gallons: http://www.pitt.edu/~rsup/volumeconv.html Volume of a cylinder is discussed at: http://www.mathleague.com/help/geometry/3space.htm#cylinder If you are unsatisfied with any portion of this answer please request clarification before submitting a rating.
