Enter a value for all fields

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:

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

**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.

where:

- A is the lateral area (surface area) of a cylinder.
- r is the radius of the cylinder
- h is the height of the cylinder

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

- surface area of pipes
- surface area of conduits
- surface area of jars
- surface area of cans
- surface area of cylinders
- surface area of cups
- surface area of cylinder shaped containers

- Compute the
**Lateral Surface Area (sides) of a Cylinder**based on height and radius. - Compute the
**Total Surface Area of a Cylinder**including the sides, top and bottom. - Compute the
**Volume of a Cylinder**based on cylinder height and radius - Compute the
**Height of a Cylinder**based on the volume and radius. - Compute the
**Radius of a Cylinder**based on the volume and height. - Compute the
**Mass or Weight of a Cylinder**based on the volume and mean density of the cylinder. - Compute the
**Density of a cylinder**. - Compute the
**Lateral Surface Area of a Slanted Cylinder**. - Compute the
**Volume of a Slanted Cylinder**. - Compute the
**Weight or Mass of a Slanted Cylinder**. - Compute the moment of inertia of a cylinder shaped object based around the central axis
- Compute the moment of inertia of a cylinder shaped object around the end of the cylinder
- Compute the moment of inertia of a cylinder shaped object perpendicular to the central axis.
- Look up the mean density of common substances (useful in calculating the mass/weight and the moments of inertia)
