Radius = half the diameter. r = D/2 = 6/2 = 3 ft. h = 4 ft. Use as an approximation. The volume of one tank is: cu.ft. Multiply this by 7 to find the volume of 7 tanks. cu.ft. If 1 cu.ft = 7.5 gallons of liquid fertilizer, then: 791.28 cu.ft. = (7.5gal/cu.ft)(791.28cu.ft.) gallons. This equals 5934.6 gallons. So, the 7 tanks will hold 5934.6 gallons of liquid fertilizer. Answer by checkley75(3666)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!V=B*H WHERE B= BASE AREA & H=HEIGHT V=3.14*3^2*4 V=113.04 CUBIC FT. PER TANK. 7*113.04=791.28 TOTAL CUBIC FEET. 791.28*7.5=5,934.6 GALLONS OF FERTILIZER.
