You are going to have to provide more information for anyone to help you.

That is to say, ahsuu, pressure is just force per unit area, so interior pressure alone cannot possibly determine the dimensions of a tank. There must be some other information in your problem.

I have paintball gun tanks that are 48 cubic inches that can maintain 500psi. I also have scuba tanks which can handle 500psi. What is the application?

500 psi is nothing for a compressed air tank. You should be looking at a lot higher pressure aluminum or composite tanks so you can carry more air.

I know, I have 3000psi in them, I was just saying that they can hold 500psi no problem.
