How do you calculate surface area to volume ratio of a cylinder?
Here are the formulas you'll need:
r is the radius of the cylinder and h is its height.
So for example, let's say you had a cylinder that had a radius of 3 cm and a height of 6 cm. For surface area, you would calculate:
For volume, you would calculate:
Then you divide the surface area/volume, which here is simply 1.
One note is that the units for surface area would be
