C Program for Find the perimeter of a cylinder
  • Last Updated : 30 Mar, 2021

Given diameter and height, find the perimeter of a cylinder.
Perimeter is the length of the outline of a two – dimensional shape. A cylinder is a three – dimensional shape. So, technically we cannot find the perimeter of a cylinder but we can find the perimeter of the cross-section of the cylinder. This can be done by creating the projection on its base, thus, creating the projection on its side, then the shape would be reduced to a rectangle.
 

Formula : 
Perimeter of cylinder ( P ) = ( 2 * d ) + ( 2 * h )
here d is the diameter of the cylinder 
h is the height of the cylinder
Examples : 
 

Input : diameter = 5, height = 10 
Output : Perimeter = 30

Input : diameter = 50, height = 150 
Output : Perimeter = 400

CPP




// CPP program to find
// perimeter of cylinder
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to calculate perimeter
int perimeter(int diameter, int height)
{
    return 2 * (diameter + height);
}
 
// Driver function
int main()
{
    int diameter = 5;
    int height = 10;
     
    cout << "Perimeter = ";
    cout<< perimeter(diameter, height);
    cout<<" units\n";
     
    return 0;
}

Output : 

Perimeter = 30 units

Time Complexity: O(1)

Auxiliary Space: O(1)
