APPLICATION. Required the gallons in any Cylindrical Vessel. Suppose a vessel 9 1-- inches deep, 9 inches diameter, and contents 2.6163, that is 2 gallons and 61 hundredth parts of a gallon, now to ascertain this decimal of a gallon refer to the above Table, for the decimal that is nearest, .625, opposite to which is 6-8th of a gallon, or 20 gills, or 5 pints, or 2 1-2 quarts, consequently the vessel contains 2 gallons and 5 pints.
