How do you find the height of a cylinder?

What is the formula for finding the volume of a cylinder?

If a cylinder has a volume of 288π units and a radius of 6 units,what is the cylinder's height?

## Volume of a Cylinder Calculator

A cylinder is a three dimensional shape with two circular bases that are parallel

The volume of a cylinder is found by multiplying the area of one base by its height.

# Volume of a Cylinder

Find the volume of a cylinder with the following dimensions

Radius = 4

Height = 3

Find the volume of a cylinder with the following dimensions

Radius = 2

Height = 3

This step involves multiplying the radius squared times the height of the cone

16 = the radius squared

3 = the height of the cone

4 = radius squared

3 = height of the cone

This step involves multiplying the radius squared times the height of the cone

Formula for volume of a cylinder

r = radius

h = height of the cylinder

π = pi

## Finding the height of a cylinder

### If a cylinder has a volume of 288π and a radius of 6 units what is the cylinders height?

**Step 1.**Plug your given information into the **volume of a cylinder formula**.

** Volume** = πr^2 * h

r=radius of the circular end of the cylinder

h =height of the cylinder

288π = π6^2 * height

**Step 2** . 288π = π36 * height The 6^2 from step 1 becomes 36 because

6 squared =36

**Step 3**. Divide each side by 36π

288π/36π = π36/ π36 * height Once you divide you are left with 8

**Step 4**. 8 units = *height of the cylinder*
