The area for the base of a cylinder is the area of a circle. pi times radius squared.

You Find the Hieght of the cylinder

First find the area of the cylinder's base, and multiply that by the height. For V = A x h. Volume, Area, height.

We assume the surface area of a cylinder excluding its ends. Area = height of cylinder multiplied by circumference. That is A = h x Pi x diameter.

if the cylinder is on the inside, it would not affect the surface area. otherwise, subtract the part of the inside cylinder that touches the outside from the cylinder

To find the lateral area of a cylinder, multiply the circumference (πd) by the height (πdh). After you have this, you can find the total surface area by adding twice the area of the base (2πr2).(Lateral area = πdh), (Surface area = πdh + 2πr2).
