The Mass of a Cylinder calculator computes the mass or weight (m) of a cylinder based on the radius of the cylinder (r), the height (h) and the density (ρ).
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose units and enter the following:
Mass of the Cylinder (m): The calculator returns the mass of the cylinder in kilograms. However, this can be automatically converted to other mass and weight units via the pull-down menu. The calculator also returns the volume in liters, which can also be automatically converted to compatible units via the pull-down menu.
The formula for the mass of a cylinder is:
m = ρ•π•r²•h
|Common Mean Densities|
Mean Density is the average amount of mass within a volume for a substance. Note, volume of a material is often highly subject to the temperatures, since materials expand as they warm. For that reason, mean densities of substances are often cited with a set of nominal conditions such as temperature and barometric pressure.
The formula for mean density is:
μD = V / m
Mean density is also often indicated as the Greek symbol rho (ρ).
Density is a function of mass. However, converting from mass to weight is trivial under the right conditions. Fortunately those conditions are generally true anywhere on the surface of the Earth, so the conversions built into the vCalc engine can be assumed to be fairly accurate unless you require weight at very high altitudes or in space.
The mean density (mD or μD) of many common substances, elements, liquids and materials can be found by clicking HERE .
Mean density is scientifically volume divided by mass. There are various unit for density adopted by cultures and industries. Common units for density included the following:
vCalc provides for automatic conversions between density units via the pull-down menus.
