Find the perimeter of a cylinder

  • Difficulty Level : Easy
  • Last Updated : 24 Nov, 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

 



 

C++




// 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;
}

Java

    /* Driver program to test above function */
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        int diameter = 5;
        int height = 10;
        System.out.println("Perimeter = " +
                         perimeter(diameter, height) 
                                       + " units\n");
    }

<script>
  
// javascript program to find 
// perimeter of cylinder
  
// Function to calculate perimeter
    function perimeter(diameter, height)
    {
        return 2 * (diameter + height);
    }
  
// Driver Function
  
         let diameter = 5;
        let height = 10;
        document.write("Perimeter = " +
                         perimeter(diameter, height) 
                                       + " units\n");
      
    // This code is contributed by susmitakundugoaldanga.
</script>

Output : 
 

Perimeter = 30 units
