volume of a cylinder formula
Find the volume of a cylinder having a radius of 5 cm and a height
of 12 cm.
Given:
r = 5 cm; h = 12 cm
The formula:
V = Π r2h
V = (3.14)(52)(12)
V = (3.14)(25)(12)
V = 942 cubic cm!
The volume of a cylinder is found by multiplying
the area of its circular base by its height.
Finding the Volume of a Cylinder
example:
cylinder
This cylinder has a height of 15 cm and a
diameter of 8 cm.
Its radius equals 4 cm.
Area = 3.14 x 4 x 4
= 50.24 x 15cm =
To find this cylinder's volume, multiply
the area of the circle by the height.
50.24 x 15 =753.6
pi x square of the radius x height
