Question from mike:

I need to know the formula to measure conceret celinders

Hi Mike,

I think you are looking for the volume of a concrete cylinder.

concrete cylinder

If h is the height and r is the radius as in the diagram, both in the same units, then the volume is

π r2 h cubic units.

where π is approximately 3.14159.

I hope this helps,
