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!

FAQs

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?
