Online calculator to calculate the surface area and the volume of a right cylinder given its radius r and height h as shown below.
Formulas for Area and Volume
1) The lateral surface of the right cylinder is the surface without the top and bottom surfaces. Its area AL is found by multiplying the circumference of the base by the height and is given by
AL = 2 π r h
2) The total surface of the right cylinder is the lateral surface and the top and bottom surfaces. Its area AT is found by adding the area of the two bases to the area of the lateral surface and is given by
AT = AL + 2 π r 2 = 2 π r h + 2 π r 2
The volume V of the right cylinder is found by multiplying the area of the base by the height of the right cylinder and is given by
V = π r 2 h
Use of the Calculator
Enter the radius r and height h, of the cylinder, as positive real numbers and press "calculate". The outputs are the lateral surface area AL, the total surface area AT and the volume V of the cylinder.
