The Volume of a Cylinder from the Height and Circumference calculator computes the volume of a right circular cylinder from the height (h) and circumference (c) of the base (see diagram).
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose units and enter the following:
Volume of a Cylinder (V): The calculator returns the volume gallons, fluid ounces and liters. However, these can be automatically converted to many other volume units (e.g. cubic inches) via the pull-down menu.
NOTE: This calculator was updated on 3/18/2022 to have inches and gallons as the default input and output units respectively. All other unit options are available via the pull-down menus.
The formula for theis:
To get the radius (r), the circumference of a circle equation (c = 2•π•r) is used and solved for r:
This combines to give the formula for the:
