Calculator for cylinders

Calculating a cylinder

 A cylinder.

Enter two values. Other values will be calculated.

radius Diameter
Base area:
Lateral area: Surface:

Cylinder formulas:
Base area = pi * radius˛
Volume = base area *height
Lateral area = perimeter * height
Surface = 2 * base area + lateral area


What is a cylinder?

A cylinder is gotten by connecting two circles lying one above the other.

What are the cylinder formulas?

The base area is pi*r˛ cause it is a circle, and for the same reason the base area perimeter is 2*pi*r. The lateral area equals U*h where U is the base area perimeter. The surface is 2*G+M where G is the base area and M the lateral area. The volume is G*h.
