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) = πr2 × h = πr2h cubic units.
Therefore, Volume of a cylinder = πr2h cu. Units.
