Equation of a cylinder in 3 dimensional space.

Hi Friends,

Please, I like to know the equation of a cylinder with a given radius, r and a given height, h in 3 dimensional space(x,y,z).

We need this in other to verify whether a given point, say (1,2,3) is in the cylinder or not.

Thanks.

in that equation there is no height included so it has to be over an interval for z
