    Cylinder Surface Area Formula

    Result

    S = 2 π a h
(lateral surface area assuming height h, radius a)

    Example plots

    Example plots

    Equations

    x(u, v) = a cos(u)
y(u, v) = a sin(u)
z(u, v) = v

    x^2 + y^2 = a^2 and 0<=z<=h

    Surface properties

    2

    ds^2 = 1 du^2 + a^2 dv^2

    dA = a du dv

    x^_ = (0, 0, h/2)

    V = π a^2 h

    I = (1/12 (3 a^2 + 4 h^2) | 0 | 0
0 | 1/12 (3 a^2 + 4 h^2) | 0
0 | 0 | a^2/2)

    K(u, v) = 0

    (for a finite open right cylinder of radius a with symmetry axis along the z-axis, base at z = 0, and of height h)
