About RF Cafe™


Geometry - Cylinders, Cones & Spheres

Here are formulas for some of the most commonly used cylinders, cones, and spheres, all with symmetry about the axis of rotation. Equations for surface area and circumference are provided.

    B1= area of lower base
    B2= area of upper base
    D = diameter
    h = altitude
    R = radius of base
    S = lateral surface
    s = slant length,
    T = total surface
    V = volume
