Finding the volume of a cylinder
The formula for finding the volume of a cylinder equals πr^(2 )* h
The πr^(2 ) equals the area of the base and the h equals the height of the cylinder
Problem 1 Find the volume of the cylinder that has a diameter of 6 units
and a height of 8 units.
Step 1 Find the radius by dividing the diameter in half.
6 /2 = 3 units which is r or the radius
Step 2. Plug the radius into πr^(2 ) which equals π3^(2 )
9π = base area of the cylinder
Step 3. 9π * height which equals 9π * 8 = 72π units^3 (remember that
volume is always units cubed)
