Cylinder Calculator

The volume of a cylinder as well as the dimensions that are related to it can be calculated by merely inputting those values that are already known to the user.

The following algorithms are included in this calculator:

Top Or Bottom Surface Area of a Cylinder: T = B = π*r2

Lateral Surface Area of a Cylinder: L = 2*π*r*h

Total Surface Area of a Cylinder: A = 2*π*r2 + 2*π*r*h = 2*π*r*(r + h)

Volume of a Cylinder: V = π*r2*h

Where π is the constant (3.141592654)

Circular Cylinder Shape

It is important to recall the dimensions that are normally associated with a cylinder, starting with the definition of the cylinder which is a geometrical shape which has straight sides that are parallel to each other and also possesses an oval or circular cross section.

The foregoing dimensions are: diameter, radius, circumference, height, surface area, and volume. Diameter is defined as a straight line that passes through the center point of a circuit from one side to another. In the case of the cylinder, the diameter is found anywhere in its cross section because it is of the oval form. Radius is defined as a straight line from the center to any point on the circumference. The latter is defined as the boundary of a circular or oval shape.

Note that the surface area and the volume are calculated in square units and cubic units respectively.
