How to Calculate and Solve for the Volume, Radius and Height of a Cylinder | Nickzom Calculator

The image above represents a cylinder. To calculate the volume of a cylinder requires two essential parameters which are the radius and height of the cylinder.

The formula for computing the volume of a cylinder is:

V = Ï€r2h

Where:
V = Volume of a cylinder
r = radius of the cylinder
h = height of the cylinder

Letâ€™s solve an example
Find the volume of a cylinder with a radius of 3 cm and a height of 5 cm.

This implies that:
r = radius of the cylinder = 3
h = height of the cylinder = 5

V = Ï€r2h
V = 3.142 x 32 x 5
So, V = 141.39

Therefore, the volumeÂ of the cylinderÂ is 141.39 cm3.

Calculating the Height of a cylinder when Volume and Radius is Given

The formula is h = V / Ï€r2

Where;
V = Volume of a cylinder
r =Â  radius of the cylinder
h = height of the cylinder

Letâ€™s solve an example:
Find the height of a cylinder with a volume of 300 cm3 and a radius of 3 cm

This implies that;
V = Volume of the cylinder = 300 cm3
rÂ  = radius of the cylinder = 3 cm

h =Â V / Ï€r2
h =Â 300Â /Â 3.142(3)2
Then, h = 300Â /Â 28.278
h = 10.61
Therefore, theÂ heightÂ of the cylinderÂ isÂ 10.61 cm.

Calculating the Radius of a cylinder when Volume and Height is Given

The formula is r = âˆš(V / Ï€h)

Where;
V = Volume of a cylinder
r =Â  radius of the cylinder
h = height of the cylinder

Letâ€™s solve an example:
Find the radius of a cylinder with a volume of 200 cm3 and a height of 5 cm

This implies that;
V = Volume of the cylinder = 200 cm3
hÂ  = height of the cylinder = 5 cm

r =Â âˆš(V / Ï€h)
r =Â âˆš(200Â /Â 3.142(5))
That is, r = âˆš(200Â /Â 15.71)
r = âˆš12.73
r = 3.57

Therefore, theÂ radiusÂ of the cylinderÂ isÂ 3.57 cm.
