The lateral area of a cylinder with a diameter of 10cm and height of 2cm is approximately 62.83cm2

The lateral surface area of this cylinder is approximately 859.54cm2

The lateral area of a cylinder whose diameter is 4cm and whose height is three times the radius equals approximately 75.4cm2

A cylinder with a diameter of 1.75 and a height of 5.25 has a total surface area of approximately 33.67 units2 and a lateral surface area of approximately 28.86 units2

The Lateral Area of a cylinder with diameter of 12 cm and a height of 20 cm is equivalent to 0.075 square meter. Diameter of 12 cm is equals to 0.06 meter in radius and height of 20cm is equals to 0.2 meter

The curved surface area is 314.16 square units.

half the diameter and then get the radius times pi and square it

That will depend on its height which has not been given

The formula for the area of the lateral surface of a cylinder is pi X diameter X length, when the length and diameter are in the same units. In this instance, the diameter is stated in inches but can be converted to 1.0 foot and then agrees with the units of the length given. The formula yields an answer of 4.7 X 102 square feet to the justified number of significant digits (limited by the number of significant digits in the given value "12"). If the given integers are considered exact, the answer is about 4.71238898 X 102 square feet.If the two ends of the cylinder are to be considered as part of its area, note that each end is a cylinder with a diameter of 1.0 foot, therefore a radius of 0.50 feet and therefore has an area of pi/4 square feet or about 0.79 square feet. Twice this value should be added to the lateral area to obtain the complete surface area of the cylinder.

lateral area

Divide the surface area by the circumference of the circle, which is a product of the diameter x Pi. Essentially, an unrolled cylinder is a rectangle.

It is 10 cm.
