The total surface area of a solid right circular cylinder is 1540 cm2. If the height is four times the radius of the base, then find the height of the cylinder.

Answer :

Given : TSA of cylinder = 1540 cm2

To find : Height of cylinder = h = ?


Formula : TSA of cylinder = 2πr (h + r)


Solution : Let the radius and height of the cylinder be r and h respectively.


According to the given condition,


h = 4r


r =


TSA of cylinder = 2r (h + r)


1540 = 2 × × (h + )


1540 =


h2 = = 28 × 28


h = 28 cm


The height of the right circular cylinder is 8 cm.
