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:

- (
**c**) Circumference of Circular Base - (
**h**) Height of Cylinder

**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 the volume of a cylinder is:

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 volume of a cylinder from the height and circumference:

- 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
