What is a Sectioned cylinder?

Solid obtained by cutting a cylinder by a plane not parallel to the bases and which intersects all the generators. Usually used in the case of a straight cylinder with a discoidal base. The two solids thus obtained are both truncated cylinders. If the plane is parallel to the bases, the two solids obtained are cylinders.

Calculate the volume of the Sectioned cylinder

To calculate the volume of a sectioned cylinder, you must perform the following equation:

π pi (which is 3.14) multiplied by the square of the radius multiplied by the (height 1 + height 2) divided by 2

The formula is, therefore:

Volume of a sectioned cylinder = π . r² . (h1 + h2) / 2

The smallest height is represented by h1, while the tallest by h2.

Calculate the area of the Sectioned cylinder

To calculate the area of a sectioned cylinder, you must perform the following equation:

π pi (which is 3.14) multiplied by the radius multiplied by the (height 1 + height 2)

The formula is, therefore:

Area of a sectioned cylinder = π . r . (h1 + h2)

The smallest height is represented by h1, while the tallest by h2.
