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