# Perimeter of Cylinder Calculator

A cylinder is a solid with two circular faces of radius r and height h. The perimeter of a cylinder is calculated by calculating the circumference of its circular area. This circumference of the circle forming the cylinder can be calculated by either multiplying the diameter of the circle by Pi or multiplying twice of the radius with pi. Enter the value of radius (diameter /2) into the calculator to find the perimeter of the cylinder

## Cylinder Base Circumference Calculation

A cylinder is a solid with two circular faces of radius r and height h. The perimeter of a cylinder is calculated by calculating the circumference of its circular area. This circumference of the circle forming the cylinder can be calculated by either multiplying the diameter of the circle by Pi or multiplying twice of the radius with pi. Enter the value of radius (diameter /2) into the calculator to find the perimeter of the cylinder

#### Example:

**A cylinder having its circular base with diameter 50 cm will have its circumference as from the diameter, we can calculate the radius as 25 cm.**

P = 2 x π x r

= 2x3.14x25

Perimeter = 157.0796 cm
