This cylinder calculator can help you calculate the volume, base, lateral and surface areas, height or radius of any right cylinder if you have the required dimensions.

## How does this cylinder calculator work?

Depending on the dimension to be computed, this cylinder calculator applies the formulas as detailed below:

■ When **calculating the volume (V)** you have to provide its radius (r) and the height (h):

Volume (V) = πr^{2}h

■ If you want to **compute the ****surface area (A _{s}) **you have to know the radius (r) and the height (h) of the cylinder:

Surface Area (A_{S}) = 2πrh + 2πr^{2}

■ In case you try to **determine the base area (A _{b}) **then you have to specify only the radius (r) of the cylinder and the calculator will apply the area of a circle formula:

Base area (A_{b}) = πr^{2}

■ If you choose to **calculate the ****lateral** **surface area (A _{ls})** then you have to provide the radius (r) and the height (h) of the cylinder:

Lateral Surface Area (A_{ls}) = 2πrh

■ In case choose to **estimate the height (h)** then you have to input the radius (r) and the surface area (A_{s}) of the cylinder:

Height (h) = (A_{s}/2πr) - r

■ In case you select to **solve for radius (r)** then you have to give the surface area (A_{s}) and the height (h) of the cylinder:

Radius (r) = ½[(√(h^{2 }+ 2A_{s}/π)) - h/2]
