### How to Size A Bag for a Round Container

# When sizing a bag to fit a round container the following formula is quite helpful.

1. Calculate the circumference (C) of the container. C = Diameter (D) x 3.14

2. The width of the bag would be the circumference (C) divided by 2; plus 1 inch.

Width of Bag (W) = ( Circumference (C) / 2 ) + 1

3. The length (L) of the bag = container height + container diameter (D) + 5 inches for an overhang or to close.

__So in this example for a container size 18 inches in diameter x 30 inches high:__

__Step 1__

Circumference = 18 x 3.14

= 56.52

__Step 2__

Bag Width = (56.52 / 2) + 1 inch

= 29.26 inches

__ Let's say 29.25 inches.__

__Step 3__

The length of the bag = 30 inches + 18 inches + 5 inches

= __53 inches__

Therefor a container size of diameter 18 inches x height 30 inches would require a bag size of 29.25 x 53 inches long in order to line the cylinder (container) and close the bag at the top.
