## What is Area of a Cylinder Calculator?

Cuemath's Area of a Cylinder Calculator is an online tool which helps to calculate the area of a cylinder. Cuemath's online area of a cylinder calculator helps you to calculate area of cylinder for a given radius and height within a few seconds.

Note: Enter numbers up to 4 digits.

## How to Use the Area of a Cylinder Calculator?

Please follow below steps to find area of cylinder:

**Step 1:**Enter the radius of the cylinder in the given input box.**Step 2:**Enter the height of the cylinder in given input box.**Step 3:**Click on the**"Calculate"**button to find area of cylinder.-
**Step 4:**Click on the**"Reset"**button to find the area for different radius and height values.

## How to Find the Area of a Cylinder?

Area of cylinder is defined as sum of curved surface area and the area of two circular bases.

**Area of cylinder = 2πrh + 2πr**^{2} = 2πr(h+r)

^{2}= 2πr(h+r)

where,'r' is the radius of the cylinder and 'h' is the height of the cylinder and π(Pi) is the mathematical constant with an approximate value of 3.14.

**Solved example:**

Find total surface area of cylinder whose radius is 5 units and height is 6 units.

**Solution:**

Area of cylinder = 2πr(h+r)

= 2 × 3.14 × 5 × (6 + 5)

= (31.4) × (11)

= 345.4 square units.

Similarly, you can try the calculator to find the area of cylinders with the following height and radius.

- Height = 10 units and radius = 7 units
- Height = 13 units and radius = 9 units
