Find the volume of a cylinder with a diameter of 6 inches and a height that is three times the radius. Use 3.14 for pi and round your answer to the nearest hundredth. (Hint: You may only enter numerals, decimal points, and negative signs in the answer blank).
There are several information's of immense importance already given in the question. Let us write them down first. Diameter of the cylinder = 6 inches Then Radius of the cylinder = 3 inches. Height of the cylinder = 3 * radius = 3 * 3 = 9 inches Volume of the cylinder = (pi) * (Radius)^2 * Height = 3.14 * (3)^2 * 9 = 3.14 * 9 * 9 = 254.34 cubic inches
In finding the volume of a cylinder, you must know its height, diameter of its base and also the value of pi which is 3.14. The formula of a cylinder is the value of pi times the square of its radius times the value of its height. So by calculating the answer is 25.34 cubic inches
