For ease of calculating, we chose
1) liquid level and 2) tank diameter
as the data items required for input.

If you only know cap height and diameter, just remember this simple relationship:
Liquid Level = Diameter - Cap Height.

The total volume of a partially-filled spherical tank equals total sphere volume minus spherical cap volume.
