Volume of a cylinder is
V = radius squared x Pi x Hieght
So take your numbers and plug them in, you'll get volume in cubic inches. Then go to this page and convert the cubic inches into L.

Or use that site to convert the inches into cm. Then the volume number you will get will be in cubic cm. 1000 cubic cm is 1L. Since 1ml is the same as 1 cubic cm.

I usually use volume formula:
cylinder: piR²(length)
Where R is the radius
or..
Rectangle:
volume = L X W X H
then I just convert the answer to FT³ by dividing by 1728..
Then I calculate to liters:
FT³ X 28.325 = liters.
