Volume of a cylinder calculator is used to find volume of a cylinder. We can use the formula [(Area of the base) x (height)] to find the volume of a cylinder. We know the base is circle. Therefore, volume of a cylinder =Π r2 h. The unit for volume is cubic units.
Example 1: find the volume of the cylinder with radius 14 cm and height 20 cm.
We have radius of the base r = 14 cm, height = 20 cm
We have the formula, volume of cylinder = Area of the Base x height
First we can find the Area of the base
Area of the equilateral triangle = Π r2, we can plug the values
Then, Area of the base = 22 x 142 = 616
Volume of cylinder = 616 x 20 = 12320 cubic cm
Example 2: The volume of a cylindrical bottle is 88 cubic cm. Find its height if its radius is 2 cm.
We have volume of cylindrical bottle V = 88 cubic cm, its radius = 2 cm
We have the formula, volume of cylinder = Π r2h
From this we can write Π r2h = 88
Then, we can plug the values in this formula
Then, we have 22 x 22h = 88
Height of the cylindrical bottle is 7 cm.
