Cylinder Volume Problem

Can someone please help me solve this problem? See attached. Thanks!

A rain gauge is cylindrical in shape and has a diameter at the opening of 100 mm. If 5 mm of rain falls, calculate the volume of the water collected in the rain gauge.

Opening has area of $\displaystyle A=\pi 50^2$.
volume of water = 5A.
