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

## Python

`# 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))` |

**Output :**

Perimeter = 30 units
