Cylindrical Shell Formula

The following formulas are used int he cylindrical shell calculator above. The first formula is used to calculate the volume.

V = (R^2 – r^2) * L * PI

  • Where V is volume
  • R is the outer radius
  • r is the inner radius
  • L is the length/height

The following formula can be used to calculate the total surface area of a shell:

A = 2*PI*(R+r)*(R-r+L)

  • Where A is the surface area
  • r is the inner radius
  • R is the outer radius
  • L is the height
