# Find Out Things About Cylinder

 This page will show you how to calcualte various things related to cylinders. Notes about cylinders: The radius R, or the distance from the center of a cylinder to its edge, and its length, L are usually the defining property of a cylinder. If your cylinder is standing upright, you might call the "length" a "height" instead. The diameter, or the distance across a cylinder that passes through the center of the cylinder is 2R (twice the radius). The surface area of an open ended cylinder (as shown) is 2 RL If the cylinder has caps on the ends, the surface area is 2 RL+2 R2 The volume of a cylinder is R2L Note that =3.1415926535... What would you like to know? I know that the radiusdiameter of a cylinder is , and the length or height of a cylinder is . From this, show me how to calculate the radiusdiameterareavolume of the cylinder. The cylinder I am thinking of doesdoes not have caps on its ends.
