I am trying to compile this in DevC++ but I keep getting hung up with the error..
" 'h' cannot be used as a function." Is there something I`m missing? I`ve been assigning different letters to equations all night and this is the first problem I`ve had. Thanks for the help. Plain
//Here's a piece on horizontal cylinders, circular and elliptical,
//that may be
//what you want.
//Consider a circle of radius a (the end of the tank)
//and imagine that the liquid
//height h, measured from the lowest point on the circle.
//Note that 0 <= h <= 2a. The area A
//of the segment of the circle covered by the liquid is
//A = pi*a^2/2 - a^2*arcsin(1-h/a) - (a-h)*sqrt(h(2a-h)).
//Note: your calculator should be set in radians.
//Now multiply A * L.
//This program calculates the partial volume of a horizontal cylinder.
//a = r, h = measured liquid
using namespace std;
double pi = 3.141592;
