Welcome to the Omni circumference of a cylinder calculator, a convenient and easy-to-use tool to help you determine what is the circumference of a cylinder. Are you wondering how to find the circumference of a cylinder? Or maybe you're just interested in what is the circumference of a cylinder in general?

Regardless, grab your ruler or a measuring tape, and the circumference of a cylinder calculator will do the calculations for you!

## How do I find the circumference of a cylinder? Circumference of a cylinder formula

Let's start from the beginning - what is circumference? The circumference is a linear distance around the edge of a circle or ellipse. Since a cylinder's cross-section is a circle, you can calculate the circumference of a cylinder using the following formula:

cylinder_circumference = 2 * π * cylinder_radius

or

cylinder_circumference = π * cylinder_diameter

Let's put the formula for the circumference of a cylinder in perspective. Suppose the radius of a cylinder is 5 cm. To calculate the circumference of a cylinder, you have to multiply five by two and by pi, which equals approximately 31.41 cm.
