Observe the changes that occur in the volume of a cylinder when its height, radius, and incline change.
After completing this tutorial, you will be able to complete the following:
A cylinder is a three-dimensional geometric figure.
A three-dimensional geometric figure that has two congruent and parallel circular bases connected to a curved surface.
The volume of a cylinder can be found by using the formula
The volume of a cylinder is equal to the product of its height (h) and the area of its base (B). To find the volume of a cylinder, first we need to calculate the area of its base (B). The area of the base (B) is equal tobecause the base is shaped like a circle. So, the volume of the cylinder is equal to the product of and the height (h).
The volume of a cylinder is proportional to both height and the square of the radius of its base.
This Activity Object will focus on the changes in a cylinder's volume when other variables are altered. For instance, students will be able to change the height, radius, or incline of the cylinder, and then observe the results from these changes.
