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.
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.
"When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
Are we just talking (0.785) x (Dia, ft)2 x (Height, Length, or Depth, in ft.) x 7.48 gal/ft3 for water?
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.) ?
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:
If the latter you need to know the actual ID for calculating cross sectional area.
