The volume of a circular cylinder varies directly with the height of the cylinder and with the square of the cylinder's radius If the height is halved and the radius is doubled then the volume will be increased.

The height of a cylinder with a radius of 7 and a volume of 150 is: 0.9744 units.

Volume of the cylinder: pi*radius*radius*height

The radius of the base of the cylinder is: 5.64 cm

If the radius of a sphere is tripled, the surface area increases by (3)2 = 9 times, and the volume increases by (3)3 = 27 times.

The original volume is multiplied by 27.

It depends on the shape. The volume of a sphere will increase differently to the volume of a cylinder, for example.

The volume increases 27-fold.

it looks like a circle.

The volume of a circular cylinder varies directly with the height of the cylinder and with the square of the cylinder's radius If the height is halved and the radius is doubled then the volume will be increased.

An error in measuring the radius (or diameter) of the cylinder has a greater effect on the accuracy of the volume calculation than an error in measuring the cylinder's length, since the volume is proportional to the square of the radius.

If the volume of the cylinder is 5, then its volume is 5 and its radius doesn't matter.

The volume goes up by 9 times

The volume of a cone is pi(r2h)/3 If the radius and height are both tripled, plugging this into the equation gives us pi(3h(3r)2)/3 =pi(3h9r2)/3 =27pi(r2h)/3 which is 27 times the initial volume. Thus if the radius and height of a cone are tripled, the volume multiplies by 27.

They both have the same effect on the surface area of the pipe, but the radius has more effect on its volume/capacity.

The radius of this cylinder is 7.0525.
