1) The lateral surface of the right cylinder is the surface without the top and bottom surfaces. Its area A_{L} is found by multiplying the circumference of the base by the height and is given by

A_{L} = 2 ? r h

2) The total surface of the right cylinder is the lateral surface and the top and bottom surfaces. Its area A_{T} is found by adding the area of the two bases to the area of the lateral surface and is given by

A_{T} = A_{L} + 2 ? r ^{2} = 2 ? r h + 2 ? 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 = ? 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 A_{L}, the total surface area A_{T} and the volume V of the cylinder.
