 Question 148488: The diameter of the base of a cylinder measures 4, and the altitude measures 4. In cubic units what is the volume of the cylinder Answer by mangopeeler07(462)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Volume of cylinder= This translates into the {area of the base} times the height. Why? Well, think of a cylinder as a [stack of congruent circles]. The [amount of circles] is the height. Take the area of one circle, and times it by the [amount of circles] or the height of the [stack of congruent circles]. That gives you the volume of the whole [stack of congruent circles]. Anyway, so take and plug in your values. The diameter is 4, so r=2. The altitude, or height, is 4. Plug all that stuff in and get . Simplify that and get . Then multiply 4 by 4 and get . Otherwise known as . So your volume would be
