Finding the Volume of a Storage Bin A fairly common shape for a dry- solids storage bin is a cylindrical silo with a conical collecting section at the base where the product is removed (see figure below). To calculate the volume of the contents you use the formula for a cone, as long as the height of the product, h , is less than or equal to the height of the conical section, h cone . h r V h 2 3 1 π = if h h cone and r h is the radius at height h : θ tan h r h = if r h R . If the height of the stored product is greater than the height of the conical section, the

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
