  • help looking for old thread

    I'm looking for a thread from a few months ago that discussed the formula for finding the volume of a pipe. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I have tried the search function but no luck finding it.

    thanks

    Are we just talking (0.785) x (Dia, ft)2 x (Height, Length, or Depth, in ft.) x 7.48 gal/ft3 for water?

      I've found the search function to be useless since the new change. Use google and use "ridgid forum" followed by your search words to be more effective.

        same here, search is nothing like it used to be.
        they must have dumped the index file when they upgraded.
        too much work for IT to save that stuff, and it has zero value to
        them, only to us forum users.

          Thanks Utah. That maybe what I was looking for, but now I'm more confused.
          Let me restate what I'm looking to do. I want to find the volume of water
          , in gallons, in a pipe. (55' foot long, .5 i.d.) That formula appears that you need the amount of gallons.

            That is the formula for what you are looking for. My question for you is are you working with a 6" pipe or a 1/2" pipe (.5 i.d.) ?

            For a 6" pipe the answer is 80.72 gallons

            For a 1/2" pipe the answer is .55 gallons

              That formula will work for finding the capacity in gallons of any cylinder.
              What might be helpful to know is that the diameter must be expressed in feet.
              Six inches is obviously .5 ft., but how many feet is .5 inches?
              The conversion is:

              inches X 0.0833 = feet

                Are we talking .5 inch ID, or .5 inch pipe size?

                If the latter you need to know the actual ID for calculating cross sectional area.
