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

This formula is the special version
of the right prism's volume:
V = Bh

In this case, B = πr2.

Example

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

r = 4, h = 9

V = π⋅42⋅9
