I was not 100% sure where to post this but I needed some help with a real life application.
So I have a tank of liquid that is a cylinder in the middle with two hemisphere ends or two ellipsoid ends (instead of sphere being 4/3pi(r^2) it is (2/3pi(r^2)) for the ellipsoid. the Tank has to stay on its side so I use a So I have a plank that rises as the height of the liquid changes and reads off a percentage. Using Y for the height of the liquid i can use this formula.
06. Volume 2
and dividing the sphere part by two for the ellipsoid.
I can't see inside the tank in order to measure the height of the liquid. So i need a way to measure the height of the liquid based on how full the container is. I get a % reading for the tank of how full it is. So my measurement works converting everything from 0%,50%, and 100% but that is only because the height is 50% the way up at 50% the volume but changes because it is a cylinder on the side and not a straight side.
If I put this in the wrong section I'm sorry
