# Volume of an oblique Cylinder with lateral height

### calculator to Calculate Volume of Oblique Cylinder

An oblique Cylinder is one with bases parallel to each other but not aligned to each other. As a results the lateral surface of the Cyliner appear oblique.

Following is the formula for Calculating the Volume of an Oblique Cylinder if the length of the curver surface is known ( as a in the figure above).

Volume of lateral Cylinder V = B * h

Where, B= Base area of the Oblique Cylinder

h = height of the Cylinder, measured, perpendicular ot the base.

Alternatively,

From simple Tignometry we know that, the height h can be expressed in terms of the length of the curved area as

h = a x sin (v)

We therefore have an alternate formula for the volume of Cylnder as

Volume of lateral Cylinder V = B * a * sin (v)

Or

Volume of lateral Cylinder V = pi*r*r *a*sin(v)

where r is the radius of the base

To find the volume of a Cylinder enter the length of the curved surface a, and height h in the Box and hit Calculate button.
