Volume and Surface Area of Cylinders

Volume and Surface Area of Cylinders

Free and premium, printable “Volume and Surface Area of Cylinders Worksheets!”

Imagine you have a can of soup. The amount of space inside the can is called the volume. The amount of can (the top, bottom, and curved side) is called the surface area.

Volume = π r²• h, where r is the radius of the circle and h is the height of the cylinder.

To calculate the surface area, find the area of the circular base (π r²), multiply by 2 (because there are 2 of them) and add that to the area of the curved side (2π r• h).
Here’s the formula for the surface area of a cylinder:
Surface Area = 2π r² + 2π r• h

Volume of Cylinders (Printable PDFs)

In these worksheets with answer keys, students will practice calculating volume. The formula for the volume of a cylinder is V = πr²h, where r is the radius of the circular base and h is the height of the cylinder. Remember: The radius is half the diameter. Label all answers with the correct units: cubic in, cubic ft, cubic cm, etc.

Surface Area of Cylinders (Printable PDFs)

In these math worksheets with answer keys, students will find the total area of the 3 faces of a cylinder. The formula for the surface area of a cylinder is SA = 2πr² + 2πrh where r is the radius of the circular base and h is the height of the cylinder. Remember: the radius is half the diameter, and don’t forget your units!
