# 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.

Variable | Description |
---|---|

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.
