Calculate Liters in a Can

Calculator how many liters fit in a can of a certain size or what size the can needs to be.

Mathematically, a can is a cylinder. The size of the can is precisely determined by specifying the diameter and height, the volume results from the square of half the diameter times the height times the circle number pi, i.e. radius² x height x π. Here, too, the distances inside the can must be measured if the can wall has a notable thickness.

Can 15 cm diameter, 10 cm height

Example: a can with a diameter of 15 cm and a height of 10 cm has a content of almost 1.8 liters.

Please enter any two values. This can be the diameter and height of the can or one of these values and the volume. The third value will be calculated.


Tin can

This tin can has a diameter of 10 cm and a height of 11.5 cm, so it can hold a maximum of 0.9 liters (5² * 11.5 * 3.1415927 / 1000). According to the manufacturer, it contained 800 milliliters of soup.

Here you can convert metric volume units into customary and imperial units.
