# How to Calculate the Area, Radius and Height of a Cylinder | Nickzom Calculator

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

The formula for computing the area of a cylinder is:

A = 2Ï€rh + 2Ï€r2

Where:
A = Area of a cylinder
r = radius of the cylinder
h = height of the cylinder

Letâ€™s solve an example
Find the area 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

A =Â 2Ï€rh + 2Ï€r2
A = 2(3.142) x 3 x 5 + 2(3.142) x 32
Then, A = 150.82

Therefore, the area of the cylinderÂ is 150.82Â cm2.

### Calculating the Height of a cylinder when Area and Radius is Given

The formula is h = Â A/ 2Ï€r – r

Where;
A = Area 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 an area of 600 cmÂ² and a radius of 5 cm

This implies that;
A = Area of the cylinder = 600 cmÂ²
rÂ  = radius of the cylinder = 5 cm

h =Â A / 2Ï€r – r
h = 600 / 2(3.142)(5) – 5
Then, h = 600 / 31.42 – 5
h = 19.10 – 5
h = 14.10

Therefore, the heightÂ of the cylinderÂ is 14.10Â cm.
