Hello all,

I hope you don't mind me asking this question as I'm new to the page, I work for a water tank company who put together tanks in buildings. what I seem to get asked a lot is what is the loadings (KN/m2) upon the tank.. is there a specific formula to use to work this out? (I do have all of the weights for the specific tanks).

I.e. from my understanding currently/info I current hold :

Weight of tank 2x2x2m: 600kg

Weight of water this holds (room temp): 7984.16 kg

I'm assuming there will also be a gravity force applied however I'm completely new to physics which is why I'm searching for the assistance.

thank you in advance for any assistance that you guys can provide!.
