`"Surface Area "_"Cylinder" = 2 * pi * "r" * "h" `

Enter a value for all fields

The **Lateral Surface Area of a Cylinder** calculator computes the lateral (sides only) surface area of a cylinder.

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Choose units and enter the following:

- (
**r**) This is the radius of the cylinder . - (
**h**) This is the height of the cylinder.

**Surface Area (A):** The calculator returns the surface area in square meters. However, this can be automatically converted to other area units via the pull-down menu.

The formula for the lateral surface area of a cylinder is:

A = 2π•r•h.

where:

- A is the lateral area (surface area) of a cylinder.
- r is the radius of the cylinder
- h is the height of the cylinder

Many manufactured objects are in a cylindrical form. The surface area of a cylinder formula can be used to compute:

- surface area of pipes
- surface area of conduits
- surface area of jars
- surface area of cans
- surface area of cylinders
- surface area of cups
- surface area of cylinder shaped containers

**Lateral Surface Area (sides) of a Cylinder**based on height and radius.**Total Surface Area of a Cylinder**including the sides, top and bottom.**Volume of a Cylinder**based on cylinder height and radius**Cylinder Volume from Height and Circumference****Height of a Cylinder**based on the volume and radius.**Radius of a Cylinder**based on the volume and height.**Mass or Weight of a Cylinder**based on the volume and mean density of the cylinder.**Density of a Cylinder**.**Lateral Surface Area of a Slanted Cylinder**.**Volume of a Slanted Cylinder**.**Weight or Mass of a Slanted Cylinder**.- Moment of Inertia of a cylinder shaped object based around the central axis
- Moment of Inertia of a cylinder shaped object around the end of the cylinder
- Moment of Inertia of a cylinder shaped object perpendicular to the central axis.
- Mean Density of Common substances (useful in calculating the mass/weight and the moments of inertia)
- Axial Stress on a Cylinder
- Tangential Stress in a Cylinder
- Tangential Stress outside a Cylinder
