# Right Circular Cylinder

A right circular cylinder has its base perpendicular to its sides. If the line joining the centers of the Circles of a given cylinder is perpendicular to the bases, and then the cylinder is known as right circular cylinder. If a cylinder is having a radius and length, here length is denoted as height, then the volume of a Right Circular Cylinder is given by
V = âŠĽr2h, where r is the radius of a cylinder and h is the height of cylinder.

The lateral surface area of a right circular cylinder is,
A = 2âŠĽrh (this area is defines for lateral area or without top or bottom),

And the total surface area of cylinder with top and bottom,
A = 2âŠĽr2+ 2âŠĽrh,
We can write it as:
A = 2âŠĽr (r + h),

Properties of a right circular cylinder are:
The axis of a Right circular cylinder is the line joining the centers of cylinder which is having the bases.
Example: - Calculate the volume and surface area of a right circular cylinder with r = 5" and h= 3"?
Solution: We know that the Volume of Right Circular Cylinder = âŠĽr2h,
And surface area of right circular cylinder = 2âŠĽr(r + h),
We know that the value of âŠĽ = 3.14,
Given, radius = 5,
Height = 3,
Putting the value in the formula,
On putting the value we get,
Volume of right circular cylinder = âŠĽr2h,
V = 3.14 * (5)2 * 3,
V = 3.14 * 25 * 3,
V = 3.14 * 75,
V = 235.5 inch3,
Surface area of right circular cylinder = 2âŠĽr (r + h),
SA = 2âŠĽr (r + h),
= 2 * 3.14 * 5 (5 + 3),
= 2 * 3.14 * 5 (8),
= 2 * 3.14 * 40,
= 251.2 inch2.
