Volume of a Right Cylinder

Volume of a Right Cylinder

How to find the volume of a right cylinder: formula, example, and its solution.

Formula

V = pi*(r^2)*h. V: Volume of a right cylinder, r: Radius of the base, h: Height of the right cylinder

V = πr2h

V: Volume of a right cylinder
r: Radius of the base
h: Height of the right cylinder

Example

Find the volume of the given right cylinder. r = 4, h = 9.

r = 4
h = 9

So V = π⋅42⋅9.

42 = 16

16⋅9 = 144

So V = 144π.
