Data needed to calculate a floating roof correction?

When a capacity table indicates a reference API Gravity and an API Gravity correction per barrel variance for a shore tank, what data must be available to calculate a floating roof correction?


Observed API Gravity of the contents; API Gravity for which the capacity table was calculated; correction in barrels for each degree of difference in API Gravity.

This usually available in the first few pages of the calibration/capacity table.
