The Circular Cylinder Calculator is a tool that allows you to calculate various properties of a cylinder given two known values. It is commonly used in engineering, construction, and other fields that require calculations involving cylinders.

## Concepts

### Cylinder

A cylinder is a three-dimensional geometric shape that consists of two parallel circular bases connected by a curved surface. The height of the cylinder is the perpendicular distance between the two bases.

## Formulae

The Circular Cylinder Calculator uses the following standard formulas for a cylinder:

### Volume

The volume of a cylinder is given by the formula:

```
V = ฯr^2h
```

whereย `r`

ย is the radius of the circular base andย `h`

ย is the height of the cylinder.

### Lateral Surface Area

The lateral surface area of a cylinder is given by the formula:

```
L = 2ฯrh
```

whereย `r`

ย is the radius of the circular base andย `h`

ย is the height of the cylinder.

### Top and Bottom Surface Area

The top and bottom surface area of a cylinder are both equal to the area of a circle with radiusย `r`

. Therefore, they are given by the formula:

```
T = B = ฯr^2
```

### Total Surface Area

The total surface area of a cylinder is given by the formula:

```
A = L + T + B = 2ฯrh + 2ฯr^2 = 2ฯr(h + r)
```

## Benefits

The Circular Cylinder Calculator has several benefits:

**Accuracy**: The calculator applies correct formulas for each calculation.**Versatility**: The calculator outputs volume, lateral surface area, top surface area, bottom surface area, and total surface area from two known values.**Consistency**: The calculator standardizes calculations between problems.**Accessibility**: The calculator removes mental math barriers to multi-property calculation.**Applications**: The calculator supports dimensions across scales for design, construction, etc.
