A cylinder is a three dimensional shape with a uniform circular cross section and a finite length.

A cylinder has a circular cross section that is parallel to its base.

trapezoidal cross section

Every cross-section of a sphere is a circle.

A Uniform Cross Section is the cross section of the solid, parallel to base, such that the resulting figure has the same shape and size as that of the base of the figure.More about Uniform Cross SectionSolids like pyramids and cones have slant heights and hence do not have uniform cross section.Examples of Uniform Cross SectionThe uniform cross section of the given prism is a square.The uniform cross section of the given cylinder is a circle.In short to say, uniform cross-section are when you dissect a 3D solid and you get all same shape (uniform).
