How do you find the surface area of a cylinder?
To find the surface area, use this cylinder surface area formula:
Cylinder Surface Area = 2 x (3.1416 x Radius2) +
(2 x 3.1416 x Radius x Length)
Example: The surface area of a cylinder with base radius of 3 inches
and length of 5 inches:
Cylinder Surface Area = 2 x (3.1416 x 32) + (2 x 3.1416 x 3 x 5)
Calculated out this gives a total surface area of 150.7968 Square Inches.
