Volume of a Cylinder

Volume: Learn

Volume is the three-dimensional space within a solid shape. The units of volume are the cubes of the units of length (that is, if a shape's sides are measured in meters, then the shape's area is measured in cubic meters).

We can calculate the volume of a cylinder using the basic formula for prisms and cylinders of Base_Area * Height.

Since a cylinder has circles for bases, the full formula for volume of a cylinder is Vc=Πr2h

For example, the volume of a cylinder with radius 5m and height 2m is
= 3.14*50
= 157m3.

Remember to convert any diameter measures into radius measures.

Volume: Practice

Use 3.14 for pi.
