    Help with finding the volume of a cylinder with a flat side

    can someone help me out by showing me how to calculate the volume of a cylinder with the dimensions shown in the attached picture. If you could tell me volume per inch of this material it would be very helpful. also if you could convert the volume to cc's that would also help alot!! thanks and good luck

    finding volume of cylinder with flat bottom

    posted by ncook21
    1 define units
    2 draw a circle internal diameter 4.500 and draw chord at a height of the measurement derived from internal ones given
    3 calculate the area of the sector segment and subtract it from the circle area
    4 net circle area x lenght= volume (consistent units)
