The cylinder is a three-dimensional solid object with two equal circular or elliptical bases and a curved side.
Cylinder elements:
 • Radius: is the cylinder base radius;
 • Height: perpendicular distance between a horizontal plane of a base and the other;
 • Lateral surface: face bounded by the circumferences of the bases;
If the perpendicular straight lines are connected to the circumferences bases, the cylinder is called a right circular cylinder and In this case, also, these straight lines coincide with the height of the cylinder. Otherwise, it is an oblique circular cylinder.
