A cylindrical pressure vessel has a height of 9 feet and a diameter of 6 feet. How much gas can the pressure vessel hold when full?

Height of the cylindrical pressure vessel = 9 feet

Diameter of the cylindrical pressure vessel = 6 feet

Then

Radius of the cylindrical pressure vessel = (6/2) feet

= 3 feet

Then

Volume of the cylindrical pressure vessel = πr^2h

= 3.14 * (3)^2 * 9 cubic feet

= 3.14 * 9 * 9 cubic feet

= 254.34 cubic feet

So the amount of gas that the cylindrical pressure vessel can hold is 254.34 cubic feet.
