# Formula Volume of a Cylinder

How to find the Volume of a Cylinder

This page examines the properties of a right circular cylinder. A cylinder has a radius (r) and a height (h) (see picture below).

This shape is similar to a soda can. Each cylinder has a radius and height as you can see in the diagram below.

### Practice Problems on Area of a Cylinder

##### Problem 1

Use the formula for the volume of a cylinder as shown below.

• Volume = Π *(r)2 (h)
• Volume = Π *(2)2 (6)
• = 24 Π
##### Problem 2

Use the formula for the volume of a cylinder as shown below.

• Volume = Π *(r)2 (h)
• Volume = Π *(3)2 (5)
• = 45 Π
##### Problem 3

Use the area of a cylinder formula.

• Volume = Π *(r)2 (h)
• Volume = Π *(6)2 (7)
• = 252 Π
