# Circular Cylinder Calculator

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:

Which of the following is NOT a 21st-century skill?

``````V = ฯr^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 = 2ฯrh
``````

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 = ฯr^2
``````

### Total Surface Area

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

``````A = L + T + B = 2ฯrh + 2ฯr^2 = 2ฯr(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.

## Interesting Facts

• A cylinder is one of the most basic geometric shapes and can be found in many everyday objects such as cans, pipes, and glasses.
• The volume of a cylinder was first calculated by Archimedes in ancient Greece.
• The formula for calculating the volume of a cylinder was first written down by Euclid in his book โElementsโ.
• The surface area of a cylinder can be used to calculate its heat transfer properties in thermodynamics.
