How to Find the Area of a Cylinder?

Well, cylinder is an object bounded by cylindrical surface and two parallel lines. So we will need to calculate the area of top, base and side and then combined them as a whole.Area of top = pi*r squared (pi multiplied by square of radius)Area of base = pi*r squaredArea of the side = 2pi*r*h (where r = radius and h = height)Now the total area of cylinder = 2pi*r(squared) + 2pi*r*h
