Given: Cylindrical tank volume : 14,130 in³ smaller cylinder : 25 pcs radius of small cylinders: 3 inches. Volume of a cylinder = π r² h 14,130 in³ ÷ 25 pcs = 565.20 in³ volume per small cylinder. 565.20 in³ = 3.14 * (3in)² * h 565.20 in³ = 3.14 * 9in² * h 565.20 in³ = 28.26 in² * h 565.20 in³ ÷ 28.26 in² = h 20 in = h The height of the small cylinder is 20 inches.
