Volume of a circular right cylinder

Volume of a circular right cylinder is calculated by multiplying the base by the height. Since the base of a circular right cylinder is a circle then we have to calculate the area of the circle first then multiply it by the height of the cylinder.

Volume of a right circular cylinder

V = B × h

Where V is the volume of the circular right cylinder, B is the area of the circle that forms the base of the cylinder, and h is the height of the cylinder.

The formula then will be:
V = hπr2

Example:
If h = 9 and r = 5
Then V = ?

V = 9 × 3.14 × 25 = 706.5 cubic units
