    Finding the Volume of a Cylinder

    Hello Everyone!

    I was wondering if I calculated this problem right.

    Diameter of Cylinder
    1.580cm

    Height of Cylinder
    2.140cm

    Heres the formula I used: V=π x radius squared x Height

    Heres how I started the problem

    V= 3.14 x .79(squared) x 2.140 = 4.19370236cm3

    V = 4,194cm3 ? Not really sure if thats right

    Thank you guys in advance

    V = \pi r^2 h

    radius is squared, not diameter.
