    V=\tfrac{1}{3}\pi r^2h

    To solve for h, let us first multiply both sides by 3 to get

    3V=\pi r^2 h

    Now divide by \pi to get

    \frac{3V}{\pi}=r^2 h

    Now to isolate h, divide by r^2, and we get what we are looking for:

    \color{red}\boxed{h=\frac{3V}{\pi r^2}}

    Does this make sense?
