science space and astronomy# How do you find the base of a cylinder?

Last Updated: 16th March, 2020

**base**(which is acircle)by using the equation πr² where r is the radius ofthecircle. Then, multiply the area of the

**base**by theheight ofthe

**cylinder**to find the volume.

In this regard, how do you find the circumference of a base of a cylinder?

To get the **circumference**, simply multiplytheradius by 2π. So, the **circumference** can be foundbymultiplying 3 centimeter (1.2 in) by 2π. 3 centimeter (1.2 in)x2π = 18.84 centimeter (7.4 in). Multiplythe**circumference** of the circle by the height ofthe**cylinder**. This will give you the outer edgesurfacearea.

Furthermore, what is the formula for circumference? Write down the **formula** for findingthe**circumference** of a circle using the diameter.The**formula** is simply this: C = πd. In this**equation**,"C" represents the **circumference** of thecircle, and "d"represents its diameter. That is to say, you canfind the**circumference** of a circle just by multiplying thediameterby pi.

Then, how do you find height of a cylinder?

First, plug the values of the volume, pi, and radiusintothe formula for volume of a **cylinder**. Last, divide eachsideby 78.5 for the answer, remembering to include the appropriateunitof measurement. The answer is the **height** ofthe**cylinder** is 10 feet.
