Enter a value for all fields

The **Surface Area of a Cylinder** calculator computes the total surface area of a cylinder including the sides and the circular ends of the cylinder based on the radius and height.*Right Cylinder*

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

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

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

The formula for the surface area of a cylinder is:

where:

- A is the surface area of the cylinder
- r is the radius of the cylinder
- h is the height of the cylinder

The area includes both the side of the cylinder and the top and bottom of the cylinder.
