Volume of cylinder with a 45 degree branch

  1. Sep 13, 2008 #1
    Refering to the figure, my question is:

    How to calculate volume B?

    Please note, volume C is not to be considered part of volume B, it is included just to illustrate one of the boundries of volume B (the yellow liquid is just about to flow over and into volume B).

    Actually, is there a formula that will give the difference between volume B and volume A, directly (and that include the angle as a variable)?

    best regards,
    Jens Laland

    Hi Jens! Welcome to PF! :smile:

    You'll have to divide the extra volume into strips, and integrate. :smile:

    (you didn't really expect it to be easy, did you? :wink:)
