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 Formula
Formula = (Base area) × Height =
Formula = (π × r2) × H
