A cylinder with oval or elliptic cross section is referred as elliptical cylinder. It is also referred as Cylindroids. The elliptic cylinder is a quadratic ruled surface. You can find the volume of the elliptic cylinder in this volume of elliptical cylinder calculator based on the height of the cylinder, length of the major ellipse axis and the length of the minor ellipse axis. Volume of the elliptic cylinder is the area of the base times the height.
Calculate volume of elliptical cylinder having a height of 4 cm, semi-major and semi-minor axis of 7 cm and 5 cm.
