That depends on what you already know about it. Formulas are just relationships between what you do know and what you don't know. I can't tell you what formula to use until you tell me what you know.

Example:

If you know the volume of the cylinder and its radius, then Height = Volume / pi xradius2

If you know the area of the cylinder and its radius, then Height = Area / 2 x pi x Radius

If you know the volume and area of the cylinder, then Height = Area2 / 4 x pi x Volume

L.A.= 2*pi*radius*height its not like finding the area of a rectangle. a cylinder is a 3-D shape and a rectangle is a flat shape

the formula for a cylinder is pi *radius squared*height

using a protractor

Area of a circle = (pi)r2 [Areacircle = pi time the radius squared.] Volume of a cylinder = (pi)r2h [Volumecylinder = pi times the radius squared times the height.] (This applies to a right circular cylinder. :)

that formula is base times height
