​How do you find the height of a cylinder?

What is the formula for finding the volume of a cylinder?

If a cylinder has a volume of 288π units and a radius of 6 units,what is the cylinder's height?

## Volume of a Cylinder Calculator

​A cylinder is a three dimensional shape with two circular bases that are parallel
The volume of a cylinder is found by multiplying the area of one base by its height.  # Volume of a Cylinder Parallel Circular Base

## Finding the height of a cylinder

### If a cylinder has a volume of 288π and a radius of 6 units what is the cylinders height?

Step 1.Plug your given information into the volume of a cylinder formula.

Volume = πr^2 * h
r=radius of the circular end of the cylinder
h =height of the cylinder

288π = π6^2 * height

Step 2 . 288π = π36 * height    The 6^2 from step 1 becomes 36 because
6 squared =36

Step 3. Divide each side by 36π
288π/36π = π36/ π36 * height   Once you divide you are left with 8

Step 4. 8 units = height of the cylinder
