## What is cylinder volume?

The volume of a cylinder is a measurement of the space inside the cylindrical shape. It can be calculated by multiplying the circular base’s area by the cylinder’s height.

## Cylinder volume formula

The formula for the cylinder volume,

**V = πr²h**

- V represents the volume of a cylinder
- π (pi) = mathematical constant = 3.14159
- r denotes the radius of the base
- h represents the height of the cylinder.

The formula makes it clear that calculating the volume of a cylinder involves multiplying the area of the base (πr²) by the height (h)

## How to calculate the volume of a cylinder?

To calculate the volume,

- find the area of the circular base by squaring the radius and multiplying it by pi = πr².
- Then multiply the result by the height of the cylinder = πr² * h
- The volume of a cylinder is expressed in cubic units such as cm³, m³, and ft³

**Example** – If a cylinder has a radius of 4 centimeters and a height of 18 centimeters, then calculate the volume of a cylinder

volume of cylinder = πr² * h = π4² * 18 = 904.78 cm³
