In geometry, cylinder is a solid or hollow figure with round ends and long straight sides. The cylinder formulas, solved example & step by step calculations may useful for users to understand how the input values are being used in such calculations. Also this featured cylinder calculator uses the various conversion functions to find its area, volume & slant height in SI or metric or US customary units.

## Cylinder & its Formulas

The following mathematical formulas are used in this cylinder calculator to find the volume & the base, total & lateral surface area of a cylinder for the given base radius & height values.

### Solved Example

The below solved example problem may be useful to understand how the values are being used in the mathematical formulas to find the volume & the base, total & lateral surface area of a cylinder for the given base radius & height values.

Example Problem :
Find the volume & the base, total & lateral surface area of a cylinder having the base radius & height of 18 cm & 27 cm respectively?

Solution :
The given values
base radius r = 18 cm
height h = 27 cm

Step by step calculation
formula to find volume = π r2 h
substitute the values
= π x 182 x 27
= 27493.71 cm3

formula to find total surface area = 2 π r (h + r)
substitute the values
= 2 x π x 18 x (27 + 18)
= 5091.42 cm2

formula to find base surface area = π r2
substitute the values
= π x 182 x 27
= 1018.28 cm2

formula to find lateral surface area = 2 π r h
substitute the values
= 2 x π x 18 x 27
= 3054.85 cm2

The volume & the base, total & lateral surface area of a cylinder may required to be calculated in SI or metric or US customary unit systems, therefore this cylinder calculator is featured with major measurement units conversion function to find the output values in different customary units such as inches (in), feet (ft), meters (m), centimeters (cm) & millimeters (mm) by using this below conversion table.
