How to Find the Cubic Feet of a Cylinder

Cubic footage is the measure of the volume of a space in cubic feet. To find the cubic footage of a cylinder, use the following formula:

volume = π × r2 × h

The volume of a cylinder in cubic feet is equal to π times the radius in feet squared times the height in feet.

π is roughly equal to 3.14159265359.

π = 3.14159265359

If you know the diameter of the cylinder, you can find the radius by dividing the diameter by two, or just use our circle diameter calculator.

radius = diameter ÷ 2

You should also try our cubic feet calculator which will help calculate the cubic footage of other shapes.

For example, let’s find the volume of a cylinder in cubic feet with a radius of 4′ and a height of 3′.

volume = π × 42 × 3
volume = 3.14159265359 × 16 × 3
volume = 150.8 cu ft
