A **Cubic Feet of a Cylinder Calculator** is a **powerful tool** used to determine the **volume** of a cylinder in **cubic feet**.

**Sample conversions:**

**1 cubic foot**≈**28.3168 liters****1 cubic foot**≈**7.48052 gallons (US)****1 cubic foot**≈**1728 cubic inches**

These conversions can be **helpful** when you need to express the cylinder’s volume in **different units**.

The calculator typically requires two inputs:

- The
**radius**of the circular base of the cylinder - The
**height**of the cylinder

Once these measurements are provided, the calculator uses a **mathematical formula** to compute the volume in cubic feet.

## Cubic Feet of a Cylinder Formula

The formula to calculate the **cubic feet** of a cylinder is:

**V = π r² h**

Where:

**V**is the**volume**in cubic feet**π (pi)**is approximately**3.14159****r**is the**radius**of the circular base in feet**h**is the**height**of the cylinder in feet

**Example:** Let’s say we have a cylinder with a **radius** of **2 feet** and a **height** of **5 feet**.

V = π *2²* 5

V ≈ 3.14159 *4* 5

V ≈ **62.8318 cubic feet**

## How Do You Calculate the Cubic Feet of a Cylinder?

To calculate the **cubic feet** of a cylinder, follow these **steps**:

**Measure the radius**: Determine the**radius**of the circular base in feet.**Measure the height**: Measure the**height**of the cylinder in feet.**Square the radius**: Multiply the radius by itself (**r²**).**Multiply by pi**: Multiply the result from step 3 by**π (3.14159)**.**Multiply by height**: Multiply the result from step 4 by the**height**.

The final result will give you the **volume** of the cylinder in **cubic feet**.

## How Do You Find the Cubic Capacity of a Cylinder?

The term **“cubic capacity”** is often used interchangeably with **“volume.”** To find the **cubic capacity** of a cylinder:

- Use the formula:
**V = π***r²*h - Ensure all measurements are in the
**same unit**(e.g., feet, inches, or meters) - Calculate using the steps outlined earlier

Remember that the result will be in **cubic units** corresponding to your input measurements (e.g., cubic feet, cubic inches, or cubic meters).

## How to Figure Out the Volume of a Cylinder?

Figuring out the **volume** of a cylinder involves the same process as calculating its **cubic feet** or **cubic capacity**. The key steps are:

**Identify the radius and height**of the cylinder**Apply the formula**:**V = π***r²*h**Perform the calculation**, ensuring all units are**consistent**

It’s crucial to pay attention to the **units** of your input measurements and desired output.

If you need the **volume** in a specific unit (e.g., cubic feet), make sure your **radius** and **height** are also in feet before applying the formula.
