A barrel of oil is lying on its side. It has one of its ends firmly attached to the wall (Meaning the barrel cannot be repositioned.) A dipstick can be used from the top of the rounded side to determine the height of the oil remaining in the barrel. Write a function to get the volume of the oil from the height of the oil on the dipstick. The barrel has a 22" diameter (11" radius) and a length of 33."
