How do I calculate cubic feet of a cylinder?Other cylinder volume related calculatorsFAQsWelcome to the Omni **cubic feet of a cylinder calculator,** an easy-to-use tool that helps you determine **the volume of a cylinder in cubic feet.** The calculator also lets you input your parameters in different units, so you don't have to convert values yourself. Come along, and learn how to find cubic feet of a cylinder!

## How do I calculate cubic feet of a cylinder?

To calculate **the volume of a cylinder** in cubic feet, first make sure that all your **parameters are in the same unit** (e.g., feet) and then utilize the following formula:

`V = π · r² · h`

,

where:

`V`

is cylinder volume;`r`

is cylinder radius; and`h`

is cylinder height.

Let's discuss an example. Suppose you have a cylinder with a **48 inches** radius and a **height of 6 feet.** To calculate the volume, you have to:

- Convert 48 inches to feet, which equals 4 feet;
- Square the radius, which equals 16;
- Multiply the radius squared (the result in step 2) by 6 (height of a cylinder) and by pi; and
- Voila! The volume of the cylinder is 301.59 cubic feet.

Sounds cumbersome? Don't worry; you can utilize the cubic feet of a cylinder calculator to do the work for you!

### How do I find the height of a cylinder given the volume and radius of a cylinder?

To find **the height of a cylinder,** if given the volume and radius of a cylinder:

- Double-check if volume and radius are in the same units of measurement (e.g., ft³ and ft);
- Square the radius;
- Divide the volume of a cylinder by the radius squared and pi; and
- That's all! You have calculated the height of your cylinder.

### How do I find cubic feet of a cylinder if the radius is 3 ft and the height is 6 ft?

To find **cubic feet of a cylinder** if the radius is 3 feet and the height is 6 feet:

- Square the radius, which equals 9 ft²;
- Multiply 9 ft² (radius squared) by 6 ft (height of a cylinder) and pi; and
- That's all! The volume of your cylinder in cubic feet equals 169.65 ft³.
