I found this equation: A = 1.845*(2+h/d)*(V**(2/3)) where: A - overall area of the cylinder h - cylinder height d - cylinder diameter V - cylinder volume However the upper formula is valid only for h=d (cylinder height = cylinder diameter). Does anyone know of some other formula for cylinder Area which is valid for any h/d ratio? Thank you.

Is it possible to express the cylinder area formula only through cylinder volume and radius/height (or diameter/height) ratio? For example I know the volume of the cylinder and radius/height ratio. How would the cylinder area formula look in that case? Thank you.

Then: $\displaystyle V=\frac{\pi r^3}{q} \Leftrightarrow r=\sqrt[3]{\frac{Vq}{\pi}}$ $\displaystyle V=\pi h^3q \Leftrightarrow h=\sqrt[3]{\frac{V}{\pi q^2}}$ So: $\displaystyle A=2\sqrt[3]{\frac{V^2\pi}{q}}(1+q)$ Thanks from stgeorge
