Volume of Cylinder Formula
The volume of a cone is given by the area of its base multiplied by its height. The area of the base is given by the area of a circle formula.
|The volume of the cylinder.
|The circle constant (tau), where .
|The variable represents the radius of the base circle.
|The height of the cylinder.
The volume of a cylinder is given by the circular area of the base multiplied by the height of the cylinder. For example, to calculate the area of a cylinder with and to formula is:
Set up the formula for the volume of a cone.
Substitute values in for the radius and the height .
Evaluate the exponent expression and combine like terms.
Simplify the fraction.
The volume of the cylinder is equal to cube units or approximately cube units.
