the circumfrance of the base x the height of the cylinder

Take the circumference and multiply it by it's height to get the lateral surface area.

If a is the side,lateral surface area of cube=4a2

Surface Area = 2*pi*r*h (where * means multiply)

It depends whether you want lateral or surface area. Lateral area is only the area of everything except the two bases. Surface area is the total area. Lateral area formula: pH or perimeter(of base) x height In this case, since this is a cylinder, the perimeter will be pi(diameter). Surface area: pH + 2B B= area of base So the equation would be: 10pi(9) + 2(pi x 5 squared)

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).

the circumfrance of the base x the height of the cylinder

Take the circumference and multiply it by it's height to get the lateral surface area.

First, you figure out what the area of the top of the cylinder is, which in case is pi times radius squared. Then, you multiply the answer by two. Next, you find the lateral surface area of the cylinder by multiplying the circumference times the height. Since the problem only gives us the radius of the cylinder, we use the formula, two times pi times radius times the height, in order to find the lateral surface area of the cylinder. Now the final step. Add the answer you got for the first step, plus the lateral surface area of the cylinder, and this should give you the surface area of the can of soup.

On the lateral surface.

Given only the lateral area, you cannot determine the diameter.

To find the area of a rod, you need to know its shape. If the rod is cylindrical, you can calculate the surface area using the formula for the lateral surface area of a cylinder: 2πr * h, where r is the radius and h is the height of the cylinder. If the rod has a different shape, you will need to use the appropriate formula for that shape to find its area.

Use the Formula Lateral Surface Area= 2(pi=3.14)rh
