How to Find Radius of a Cylinder?

The cylinder is defined as a three-dimensional solid figure which consists of two circular bases connected with two parallel lines. From the volume of cylinder formula, we can find the radius of the cylinder. 

The volume of a cylinder is the capacity of the cylinder or the measure of the amount of space it occupies. It is calculated with the help of the formula, V = πr2h

The radius of a cylinder(r) = √(V / π × h), where V is the volume of a cylinder, h is the height of the cylinder, and π(Pi) is a mathematical constant with an approximate value of 3.14.

Solved Example:

Find the radius of a cylinder whose volume is 100 cubic units and the height of the cylinder is 5 units?


The radius of a cylinder(r) = √(V / π × h)

= √(100 / π × 5)

= 2.523 units

Therefore, the radius of a cylinder is 2.523 units.

Similarly, you can try the calculator to determine the radius of a cylinder with the following dimensions:

1) Volume of cylinder = 144 cubic units, height of a cylinder = 7 units

2) Volume of cylinder = 169 cubic units, height of a cylinder = 12 units
