# Cylinder Volume Calculator

This Cylinder Volume Calculator is designed to help you determine the volume of a cylinder. To use the calculator, simply enter the radius of the cylinder base, the height of the cylinder, and click "Calculate". As you enter new dimensions into the volume calculator, a running total will also be displayed.

## General information and basic definition of a cylinder A cylinder is a three-dimensional shape with a circular base and straight sides that are perpendicular to the base. The surface of a cylinder is formed by the points that are equidistant from a given straight line, which is the axis of the cylinder.

The following formula can be used to calculate the volume of a cylinder:

• Base × Height (where Base is equal to π r2. r represents the radius, which is the distance from the central point to any point on the circumference. Using this equation, the volume of a circle can also be found.)
