How To Find The Volume Of A Cylinder?


Let's look at the geometric characteristics of a cylinder. But first, please review the definition of Volume Of Three-Dimensional Shapes.
  • A cylinder is a two dimensional circle with height; with height it becomes a three dimensional shape.
  • The trick to determining the volume of a cylinder is to compute the Circle area Base: Circle Area. Once you compute the Circle area and multiply it by the Cylinder height. You now have the volume of the cylinder.
  • Special note, the Base and Height of a cylinder must be greater than zero.

Volume Of A Cylinder
Volume = (Base area) × Height =
Volume = (π × r2) × H
