The volume of a right circular cylinder of base radius ‘r’ and height ‘h’ is given by V = (Base Area) × (Height)

**Volume**

Having discussed about the surface areas of cylinder, cone,
sphere, hemisphere and frustum, we shall now discuss about the volumes of these
solids.

Volume refers to the amount of space occupied by an object. The
volume is measured in cubic units.

**Volume of a solid right circular cylinder**

The volume of a right circular cylinder of base radius ‘*r*’
and height ‘*h*’ is given by *V* = (Base Area) × (Height) = *πr*^{2}
× *h* = *πr*^{2}*h* cubic units.

Therefore, Volume of a cylinder = *πr*^{2}*h*
cu. Units.
