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
Radius^{2}) +

(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
3^{2) }+ (2 x 3.1416 x 3 x 5)

Calculated out
this gives a total surface area of 150.7968 Square
Inches.
