{{ printedBook.courseTrack.name }} {{ printedBook.name }} A cylinder is a three-dimensional solid that has two parallel bases that are congruent circles connected by a curved surface.

The axis of a cylinder is the segment connecting the center of the bases. The height of a cylinder is the perpendicular distance between the bases. The radius of the cylinder is the radius of a base.
If the axis of a cylinder is not perpendicular to the bases, the cylinder is said to be an oblique cylinder.

If the dimensions of a cylinder are known, its volume and surface area can be calculated.
