# Minimum Surface Area of Cylinder Calculator

Surface area refers to the total number of square units it takes exactly to cover the surface of the cylinder. Literally, minimizing surface area is found by knowing the two circles that completes the cylinder and also the sides of cylinder. Here is the online Minimum surface area of cylinder calculator to find the minimizing surface area of closed-cylinder. The radius and height of the cylinder are the inputs needed for minimizing surface area of a cylinder calculator.

#### Formula:

M = 2πr(r + h)
**Where,**
M = Minimum Surface Area of Closed Cylinder
r = Radius of Cylinder
h = Height of Cylinder
### Example:

Calculate the minimum surface area of cylinder with the radius of 20 cm and height of 15 cm.

#### Solution:

M = 2 x 3.14159 x 20(20 + 15)

= 4398.2297 cm²
