Cylinder Basics


 A cylinder is a 3D geometric shape with two parallel circular bases and a curved surface.

Volume of a Cylinder


To find the volume, use the formula V = πr²h, where 'r' is the radius of the base and 'h' is the height.

Surface Area


Calculate the surface area of a cylinder using A = 2πr² + 2πrh, considering the two circular bases and the curved surface.



For a cylinder with a radius of 3 units and height of 6 units, the volume is V = π(3²)(6) = 54π cubic units.
