VOLUME: Cylinder Volume.  

The volume of a solid geometric object is the amount of space it occupies, measured in terms of length, width and height.

First find the end surface area and multiply by the length. The volume in this case will be measured in cubic centimetres.

The measurement of volume can be useful when we need to calculate how many objects or component parts can be fitted into a known container. In practice this is often an estimate as there is always unused space between the items. Nevertheless it can provide a useful guide.
