Largest right circular cylinder within a cube

  • Last Updated : 17 Mar, 2021

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: 
 

C++




// C++ Program to find the biggest right
// circular cylinder that can be fit within a cube
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
 
// Function to find the biggest right circular cylinder
float findVolume(float a)
{
    // 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;
}

Java




// Java Program to find the biggest right
// circular cylinder that can be fit within a cube
 
import java.io.*;
 
class GFG {
   
 
// Function to find the biggest right circular cylinder
 static float findVolume(float a)
{
    // 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 = (float)(3.14 * Math.pow(r, 2) * h);
 
    return V;
}
 
// Driver code
 
 
    public static void main (String[] args) {
            float a = 5;
 
    System.out.print(findVolume(a));
    }
}
