Whether a cylinder is laid horizontally, or standing vertically, it has the same volume.

The volume of a cylinder is the 'square area' of the circle at the end, multiplied by its length/height.

The area of a circle is Pi x diameter. (The inner diameter is probably best. The final calculation will then show the total internal volume in cubic units.)

End area x length = volume.

If the cylinder is laid horizontally, the distance between the ends would be called its length. If the cylinder is standing up, the distance between the ends is called its height.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

If you know the volume of a cylinder how do you calculate dimensions?

To calculate the volume of a cylinder, first determine the height or length of the cylinder as well as the diameter. Divide the diameter by two to get the radius, then use this formula:Volume = radius2 x Pi x length (or height)

How do you derive of surface area of cylinder?

The surface area of a cylinder can be derived from the area of rectangle. If you 'unroll' a cylinder you have a shape of a rectangle, similar to a sheet of paper. The width of the rectangle will be the height of the cylinder and the length of the rectangle will be the circumference of the cylinder end.So, Area = length * widthwhere, width = height of cylinder & length = circumference of cylinder end = PI*(Diameter of cylinder)Therefore,surface area of a cylinder = (PI)*(diameter of cylinder)*(height of cylinder)Hope that helps!

What is the gallons per inch in a 59.5 inch diameter cylinder?

A 59.5-inch diameter cylinder holds 1,733 gallons per inch of length/height.

What is the formula to find the volume for cylinder by using diameter?

The diameter, alone, is not enough to find the volume of a cylinder. You need the height as well. > Where pi = 3.1416, and d = cylinder diameter cylinder volume = pi * (d/2)2 * length of cylinder

Difference between length and height?

Length is the how long is an object horizontally. Height is how tall is an object vertically.

If a cylinder with is 3 and the length is 8 what is the volume?

Multiply the value of Pi by the diameter (or width) then multiply that by the height - and you'll have your answer !

How do you find the height of a cylinder if the you have the diameter and volume?

By inserting the data you know into the formula for the volume of a cylinder, and solving the resulting equation for the quantity you don't know - in this case, for the height. The formula for the volume of a cylinder is: volume = pi x radius2 x length. The radius is half the diameter.

What is the volume of the cylinder with a length of 22 and a diameter of 9?

The volume of a cylinder with a length of 22 and a diameter of 9 is: 1,400 cubic units.

What is the diameter of a hexagon with 10in sides?

there is no such thing as the diameter of a hexagon only circles can have diameters, now if u said the length horizontally or vertically that could be solved but since its a hexagon the length horizontally would be shorter than the length vertically.

What is the volume of a cylinder with a diameter of 3.75 and a length of 120?

The formula to work it out is: The diameter times Pi times height (or length in this case). Therefore it's 3.75 x 3.14 x 120 = 1413

What is the surface area of a cylinder whose length is 10cm and its height is 3 cm?

If by length you mean diameter then the surface area is 80π cm squared= about 251.327cm squared
