# Calculator for Cylinder Volume

## Alternative name: Canister Volume Calculator, Tank Volume Calculator

This calculator will help you find the volume of a cylinder. The formula used in this calculator is listed below.

To use this calculator, you will need to know the radius and height.

To give you a better mental model of the cylinder, you can look at the visualization below. You can navigate the 3d-model of the cylinder as you like.

## Results

Volume = **3,141.593**

## Cylinder Volume Formula

Formula variable explanation:

- C represents the volume.
- r represents the Radius.
- h represents the Height.

### LaTeX formula

If you are working in a TeX based editor you could use this TeX formula to calculate the cylinder volume.

\mathrm{C}=\pi\cdot{ r}^{2}\cdot\mathrm{h}

## How To Calculate The Cylinder Volume Your Self

Calculating the volume is rather simple when you know the formula presented above. Follow these steps:

**Then change the following variables with your values:**

**r** shall be changed with the *Radius* of your cylinder. As an example **r** could be changed to 10.**h** shall be changed with the *Height* of your cylinder. As an example **h** could be changed to 10.

- Now you can enter this in to your calculator and you will get your answer.

## Cylinder Characteristics

The following are properties of a cylinder:

- A cylinder is a three-dimensional shape.
- There are two types of cylinder shapes, right cylinder and oblique cylinder.
- The top and base of a cylinder are congruent.
- The top and base of a cylinder can be either circular or elliptical.
