C Program for Find the perimeter of a cylinder

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 ) =
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 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
