### Tank Volume Calculations

06/15/2012 4:44 AM

elev 000 100 200 300

1445 21.7 24.8 27.9 31.0

0.031 0.031 0.031

1446 52.7 55.8 58.9 62

0.031 0.031 0.031

For a dip heght of 1445.2 the volume is 27.9 and for 1446.3 the volume is 62. Now what is the volume for a dip of 1445.123. do i read 1445 under 1 and take the volume as 24.8 but what happens with difference of 0.023 in my dipping height

Whats Dipping where?

Where is the volume?

Sorry madam. the details given in my first correpondence were extracted from strapping table. so to calculate any volume one has to use that strapping table just like the given examples in that request

Okay, I have it.

So, you have... ummm... If you take your second dip.... uhhh...

Oh! So, when... ummmm... in plate three of the strapping table it says... uhhhh...

What?

Glad to have been of help.

You have to interpolate between the value for 1445.1 (which is 24.8) and the value for 1445.2 (which is 27.9) to calculate the volume of a reading of 1445.123 (which should yield a value larger than 24.8 but lower than 27.9). The interpolation will yield a reasonably precise answer as the values are increasing linearly by 3.1 units of volume for every 0.1 unit of length. This will be left as an exercise to the reader.

Thank you very much, i have done a number of calculations of present and previous dips your method produces figures that are very close and comparable.

Good answer. I just figure that I did not live up to the challange.

The challange to understand the question in the first place and give an optimal answer that is understood by OP.

Ah listen; it helps a lot if you explain what your values represent, and the relationships. We are really bright and clever, but some basic identification goes a long way.

i'm not enlish fluent so i dont understand the sh¡t of it

is that getting close http://www.erikdeman.de/manuals/Table_Dip.pdf

? marine navigation ? what's the volume has to do with it

in turn you can help me to find the 1-st-1 in:

1. Operations famyly::
2. ???,a\$b=(area unknown requires 3D,4D numbers+ops. for simplex representation),a+b,ab,a*b,e.c.

• a*b=eln(a)ln(b) -- arithmetical xor operation

• a%b=eln(a)/ln(b) -- reverse xor-ing

• unitive property: for every next generation applies a opn+1 b = eln(a)opnln(b)

• Op. level base constants::
• -inf \$ a = a = "u say" -- something close to ??? 1/(1/-inf+1/a) ???
• 0 + a = a
• 1 a = a
• e * a = a
• ee (*"+1") a = a
• e.c.
it's the u say USA

Pi are square. Corn bread are round. That's about the sh*t of it.
