Alexandra's Scribe Post

Surface Area of a Cylinder
SA= (πr²) + (2πrh) + (πr²)
The lenght of the rectangle is equal to the circumference of the circle.
Circumference (c) = πd (πxd) or 2πr (2xπxr)
radius (r) = distance (length) from the center to the outer ring.
pi (π) = is a constant and is aproximately equal to 3.14
diameter (d) = twice the length of the radius. (2r)
For example:



Volume of a Cylinder

Volume of a cylinder = area of base x height or πr² x h

For example:

You had very good diagrams, but i think you made a mistake at the volume of cylinder. You said pi,r,squared x b?
