The Properties of a Cylinder Calculator is used to calculate the volume, face surface area, and total surface area of a cylinder, using the following equations:
Volume of a Cylinder
where:
r is the radius of the cylinder
h is the height of the cylinder
Face Surface Area of a Cylinder
where:
r is the radius of the cylinder
h is the height of the cylinder
Total Surface Area of a Cylinder
where:
r is the radius of the cylinder
SA is the cylinder's face surface area
You may also optionally specify the material the cylinder is constructed from to calculate the mass. The mass is calculated based on the volume of the cylinder and the density of the material. The density of the material is derived from its specific gravity. Specific Gravities are available for a variety of metals, plastics and woods.
This calculator allows a user to specify English (inches, feet) or Metric (centimeters, meters) as possible units of measure for the radius and height of the cone. NOTE: All lengths are assumed to be of the same unit of measurement.
