is a figure with two bases that are congruent connected by a curved surface.
The axis of a cylinder
is the that connects the center of the bases. The height of a cylinder is the distance between the bases. The of the cylinder is the radius of a base.
If the axis of a cylinder is not perpendicular to the bases, then the cylinder is said to be an oblique cylinder
If the dimensions of a cylinder are known, then its and can be calculated.
