Cylinder Area Calculation: formulas and exercises

protection click fraud

THE cylinder area corresponds to the surface measurement of this figure.

Remember that the cylinder is an elongated, rounded spatial geometric figure.

It has two circles with radii of equivalent measure, which are situated in parallel planes.

Note that along the entire length of the cylinder, the diameter measurement will always be the same.

Area Formulas

In the cylinder it is possible to calculate different areas:

  • Base area (AB): this figure is formed by two bases: one upper and one lower;
  • Side area (Athere): corresponds to the measure of the lateral surface of the figure;
  • Total area (At): is the total measure of the figure's surface.

Having made that observation, let's see below the formulas to calculate each one of them:

Base Area

THEB = π.r2

Where:

THEB: base area
π (Pi): value constant 3.14
r: lightning

Side Area

THEthere = 2 π.r.h

Where:

THEthere: side area
π (Pi): value constant 3.14
r: lightning
H: height

Total area

At = 2.Ab+Al
or
At = 2(π.r2) + 2(π.r.h)

Where:

THEt: total area
THEB: base area
THEthere: side area
π (Pi): value constant 3.14
r: lightning
H: height

Exercise solved

An equilateral cylinder is 10 cm high. Calculate:

a) the lateral area

Note that the height of this cylinder equals twice its radius, so h = 2r. By the formula of the lateral area, we have:

THEthere = 2 π.r.h
THEthere = 2 π.r.2r
THEthere = 4 π.r2
THEthere = 100π cm2

b) the total area

Being the base area (AB) r2, we have the formula of the total area:

THEt = Athere + 2AB
THEt = 4 πr2 + 2πr2
THEt = 6 πr2
THEt = 150π cm2
