Largest right circular cylinder within a cube

Given a cube of side length a. The task is to find the volume of biggest right circular cylinder that can be inscribed within it.

Examples:

Input :  a = 4
Output : 50.24

Input : a = 5
Output : 98.125



Approach:
Let:

  • The height of the cylinder is h.
  • Radius of the cylinder be r.

From the diagram it is clear that:

  • The height of the cylinder = side of cube
  • Radius of the cylinder = side of the cube/2

So,

h = a
r = a/2

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

{
    // side cannot be negative
    if (a < 0)
        return -1;
  
    // radius of right circular cylinder
    float r = a / 2;
  
    // height of right circular cylinder
    float h = a;
  
    // volume of right circular cylinder
    float V = 3.14 * pow(r, 2) * h;
  
    return V;
}
  
// Driver code
int main()
{
    float a = 5;
  
    cout << findVolume(a) << endl;
  
    return 0;
