How To: Find the surface area of an aluminum can or cylinder

Find the surface area of an aluminum can or cylinder

This video tells us the method to find the surface area of an aluminium can or cylinder. The surface area includes the outside area of the curved portion and the aluminium top and bottom. The formula to find area is the multiple of 2, pi, r, r+h or (2)(pi)(r)(r+h). The radius of the cylinder is the radius of the circular top or bottom. In the example shown in the video, the radius is 4 inches and the height is 12 inches. Substituting the values in the formula, we get the surface area as (2)(3.14)(4)(4+12). This when simplified gives (6.28)(4)(16). These numbers when multiplied give the surface area as 401.92 square inch.
