# Lateral Surface Area of a Cylinder Calculator

A cylinder is a two-dimensional geometrical object. It is one of the most basic curvilinear geometric shapes. A cylinder is defined as a closed solid object with two identical circular or elliptical bases joined by curved side. The area of the side surface is known as the lateral surface area of the cylinder. Use the below given online lateral surface area calculator to find the LSA of a cylinder based on the radius and height of the cylinder.

## Find the Lateral Surface Area (LSA) of a Cylinder

A cylinder is a two-dimensional geometrical object. It is one of the most basic curvilinear geometric shapes. A cylinder is defined as a closed solid object with two identical circular or elliptical bases joined by curved side. The area of the side surface is known as the lateral surface area of the cylinder. Use the below given online lateral surface area calculator to find the LSA of a cylinder based on the radius and height of the cylinder.

#### Example

What is the LSA of a cylinder with radius 5 cm and height 10 cm.

= 2 x 3.14 x 5 x 10

= 314 cm^{2}

Similarly, if any of the two values from LSA, radius and height are known, you can find the third unknown value.
