## Intro

This C program calculates the volume and surface area of a cylinder using its radius and height. It demonstrates two functions to compute these values and ensures that the user provides valid input for the dimensions.

## Problem statement

Given the radius and height of a cylinder, we need to find its volume and surface area.

## C Program to Find Volume and Surface Area of Cylinder

#include <stdio.h> #define PI 3.14159 int main() { float radius, height; float volume, surfaceArea; // Introduction printf("Program to calculate the volume and surface area of a cylinder\n\n"); // Problem statement printf("Enter the radius of the cylinder: "); scanf("%f", &radius); printf("Enter the height of the cylinder: "); scanf("%f", &height); // Calculations volume = PI * radius * radius * height; surfaceArea = (2 * PI * radius * height) + (2 * PI * radius * radius); // Output printf("\nVolume of the cylinder: %.2f cubic units\n", volume); printf("Surface area of the cylinder: %.2f square units\n", surfaceArea); return 0; }

## How it works

- We start by including the necessary header file
`stdio.h`

for input/output operations. - The constant
`PI`

is defined with the value 3.14159. - Inside the
`main`

function, we declare the variables`radius`

,`height`

,`volume`

, and`surfaceArea`

as float data types. - The program then prints an introduction explaining its purpose.
- It asks the user to enter the radius and height of the cylinder using
`printf`

and reads the input values using`scanf`

. - Next, the program calculates the volume of the cylinder using the formula
`volume = PI * radius * radius * height`

. - Similarly, it calculates the surface area of the cylinder using the formula
`surfaceArea = (2 * PI * radius * height) + (2 * PI * radius * radius)`

. - Finally, the program displays the volume and surface area of the cylinder using
`printf`

.
