4.9 Finding the Volume of a Storage Bin II

4.8 Finding the Volume of a Storage Bin I A fairly common shape for a dry-solids storage bin is a cylindrical silo witha collecting section at the base where the product is removed (see Figure 4.60 To calculate the volume of the contents, you use the formula for a cone, as the height of product, h, is less than the height of the conical section, Here, r is the radius at height hand can be calculated from h by using t A,m, tan (9) If the height of the stored product is greater than the height of the conical the equation for a cylinder must be added to the volume of the cone: If the height of the conical section is 3 meters, the radius of the cylindrical is 2 meters, and the total height of the storage bin is 10 meters, what is the mum volume of material that can be stored? Problems 219 4.9 Finding the Volume of a Storage Bin II Consider the storage bin described in the previous problem. a. Calculate the angle θ as shown in the diagram. b. For a series of h values between 0 to 10 meters, calculate n values and bin volumes. c. Plot the volume vs. height data.
