# Volume of a Cylinder

## Volume calculator for a cylinder

## Description, how many faces, edges and vertices are there in a cylinder

**The cylinder** or regular cylinder, has **3 faces**, 2 of those faces are flat and form the base and the opposite base, the third face forms a curved side. The base and the opposite base are the same, and from the base to the opposite base the shape remains the same. It has **2 curved edges** and **no vertices**.

In case the ends of the cylinder (base and opposite base) are not aligned, we are in the presence of an oblique cylinder.

## Examples of a cylinder

We can find many **objects that look like a cylinder**, examples of cylinder shaped objects are: a log, a can of soda, a candle, a stack of poker chips, a pizza (yes, since it has a height is not considered a circle), a coin (it is a cylinder with a very small height), among others. Can you think of any other examples? leave a comment in the comment section at the bottom of the page.

## Formula for the volume of a cylinder

To **calculate the volume of a cylinder** is very simple, we must multiply π (Pi = ~ 3.14) times the radius squared and then multiply the result by the height. You can also use the online calculator to **calculate the cylinder volume automatically**.
