Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, you will learn how to find the volume and surface area of a cylinder using simple formulas. The total surface area is all-encompassing of the outside of the cylinder and can be found using the formula 2πrh + 2πr². The volume can be found using the formula πr²h. By understanding these formulas, you can find the measurements of any cylindrical object such as a coffee can or an oatmeal container.

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.
