# Volume of an Oblique Cylinder

## Volume calculator for an oblique cylinder

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

**The oblique cylinder**, is a cylinder where the base and its opposite base are not aligned. It has **3faces** just like a regular cylinder, 2 faces that form the base and the opposite base and one face that forms a curved side. **2 curved edges** and **no vertices**.

If the base and the opposite base are aligned, we are in the presence of a regular cylinder.

## Examples of an oblique cylinder

We can find many **objects that look like an oblique cylinder**, examples of oblique cylinder shaped objects are: the famous Tower of Pisa in Italy or a stack of poker chips which are tilt to one side. 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 an oblique cylinder

To **calculate the volume of an oblique cylinder** is very simple, we must multiply π (Pi = ~ 3.14) by the radius to the power of two and then multiply by the height. In this case the height forms a 90 degree angle from the opposite base to the position of the base, but outside of it.

You can also use the online calculator to get **the oblique cylinder volume automatically**.

The formula for the volume of a regular cylinder or an oblique cylinder is the same, if we imagine a stack of poker chips (forming a cylinder), even when we tilt the chips to one side (forming an oblique cylinder) the volume remains the same.
