The container is a cylindrical solid.
Don't know why you call it over-sized but that might not make a difference.
It's diameter is 2 meters.
It's height is 3 meters.
It's radius is 1 meter which is one half the diameter.
The area of its base is presumed to be a circle which would be equal to
Substitute 1 for r to get Area of the Base =
= 3.141592654, then the Area of the Base = 3.141592654 square meters.
The volume of the container would be equal to the Area of the Base Times the Height, which would then be equal to:
3.141592654 * 3 = 9.424777961 cubic meters.
The formula for the volume of the container is
is the formula for the area of the base, then the formula for the volume of the container becomes:
Area of the Base * Height.
