# Circular Cylinder Calculator

A circular cylinder calculator is a tool that allows users to calculate various properties of a circular cylinder, such as its volume, surface area, and lateral surface area. Circular cylinders are common in many everyday objects, such as cans, pipes, and tanks.

## Concepts

The following are some of the key concepts that underlie circular cylinder calculators:

• Circular cylinder: A circular cylinder is a three-dimensional shape that consists of all points in a space that are equidistant from a given line segment, called the axis. The bases of a circular cylinder are two circles, and the axis of the cylinder is perpendicular to the bases.
• Volume: The volume of a circular cylinder is the amount of space that it occupies.
• Surface area: The surface area of a circular cylinder is the total area of its surface.
• Lateral surface area: The lateral surface area of a circular cylinder is the area of its surface, excluding the bases.

## Formulae

The following are the formulae for calculating the volume, surface area, and lateral surface area of a circular cylinder:

### Volume:

``````V = πr²h
``````

where:

• V is the volume of the cylinder
• π is a mathematical constant with the approximate value of 3.14
• r is the radius of the cylinder base
• h is the height of the cylinder

### Surface area:

``````S = 2πr² + 2πrh
``````

where:

• S is the surface area of the cylinder
• π is a mathematical constant with the approximate value of 3.14
• r is the radius of the cylinder base
• h is the height of the cylinder

### Lateral surface area:

``````L = 2πrh
``````

where:

• L is the lateral surface area of the cylinder
• π is a mathematical constant with the approximate value of 3.14
• r is the radius of the cylinder base
• h is the height of the cylinder

## Benefits of using a circular cylinder calculator
