Python 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 ) =  ( 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

# Function to calculate 
# the perimeter of a cylinder
def perimeter( diameter, height ) :
    return 2 * ( diameter + height ) 
  
# Driver function
diameter = 5 ;
height = 10 ;
print ("Perimeter = ",
            perimeter(diameter, height))
