Use this diameter of a cylinder calculator as an easy-to-use tool that calculates the diameter of a cylinder for you! The calculator can also come in handy if you're interested in the volume of a cylinder. If you're curious about the formula for the diameter of a cylinder and how to find the diameter of a cylinder, come along!

How do I find diameter of a cylinder? The formula for diameter of a cylinder

To find the diameter of a cylinder, you can utilize the following formula:

d=2×Vπh,d= 2×\sqrt \frac {V}{πh},

where:

  • dd is the diameter of a cylinder;
  • VV is the volume of a cylinder; and
  • hh is the height of a cylinder.

For instance, if the volume of a cylinder is 60 cm³ and the height is 8 cm, the diameter of the cylinder in centimeters would be:

d=2×60π8=3.09d= 2×\sqrt \frac {60}{π8} = 3.09

Looks cumbersome? Don't worry; the diameter of a cylinder calculator will do all the computations for you!

FAQ

How do I calculate the diameter of a cylinder given the volume and height?

To calculate the diameter of a cylinder given the volume and height:

  1. Multiply the height of a cylinder by pi;
  2. Divide the volume of a cylinder by the number computed in Step 1;
  3. Square root the number computed in Step 2;
  4. Multiply your result by far by 2; and
  5. Ta-da! You have calculated the diameter of a cylinder given the radius and height.

How do I find the volume of a cylinder with diameter and height?

To find the volume of a cylinder with a diameter, you need to:

  1. Divide the diameter of a cylinder by two, and then square the number;
  2. Take the result you computed in step 1, and multiply it by the height of a cylinder and pi; and
  3. Voilà! You have calculated the volume of a cylinder.
