## What is a Cylinder?

a cylinder is a three-dimensional solid object that has 2 parallel bases that are congruent circles of same diameter

The Volume of an Cylinder is calculated using the following equation:

- Base x Height (with Base being equal to pi r
^{2} which is the equation for the volume of a circle. r is the Radius which is the distance from the centre of the circle to its outer edge)

**Note:** Remember to use the same measurement unit for each dimension when calculating the volume of an object.

The volume of solid objects are measured in:

- cubic feet
- cubic meters
- cubic yards

The volume of liquids are measured in:

- litres
- quarts
- pints
- gallons

The online Cylinder calculator below will automatically calculate the volume of the Cylinder based on the measurements you enter.

You will also have a running total which builds as you enter new dimensions into the volume calculator.

## Mathematics Volume Calculators

**Cube Volume Calculator** - a cube is a three-dimensional solid object bounded by six square faces, facets or sides, with three meeting at each vertex. **Cone Volume Calculator** - a cone is an three-dimensional geometric shape that tapers smoothly from a base (usually flat and circular) to a point called the apex or vertex. **Cylinder Volume Calculator** a cylinder is a three-dimensional solid object that has 2 parallel bases that are congruent circles of same diameter. **Rectangular Prism Volume Calculator** - a rectangle is any quadrilateral with four right angles. A prism has the same cross section all along its length **Irregular Prism Volume Calculator** - A prism has the same cross section all along its length. An irregular shape is a shape which does not conform to standard defined and repeatable mathematical rules **Pyramid Volume Calculator** - a pyramid is a [three-dimensional solid object] polyhedron formed by connecting a polygonal base and to a point, called the apex. **Sphere Volume Calculator** - a sphere is a perfectly round geometrical three-dimensional solid object. **Ellipsoid Volume Calculator** - An ellipsoid is a three-dimensional solid object with closed quadric surface that is a three dimensional analogue of an ellipse
