# A cylinder has a height of 5.3 cm and a diameter of 3.0 cm. What is its volume?

A three-dimensional solid figure which has two circular faces that are connected with parallel lines making a curved face is called a cylinder.

## Answer: The volume of the cylinder is 37. 47 cm^{3}.

Let's find the volume of the cylinder.

**Explanation:**

The formula for calculating the volume of a cylinder is π r^{2} h, where r is the radius and h is the height of the cylinder.

We know that radius is half of the diameter.

Volume = π r^{2} h

⇒ 22/7 × (3 cm / 2)^{2 }× 5. 3 cm

⇒ 22/7 × (9 cm^{2} / 4)^{ }× 5. 3 cm

⇒ 1049.4 cm^{3} / 28

⇒ 37. 47 cm^{3}

We can use Cuemath's online cylinder calculator to calculate the volume of the cylinder.
