 Question 295163: The height if this over-sized container is 3 m. Its diameter is 2 m. What is its area?Answer by Theo(3472)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The container is a cylindrical solid. Don't know why you call it over-sized but that might not make a difference. It's diameter is 2 meters. It's height is 3 meters. It's radius is 1 meter which is one half the diameter. The area of its base is presumed to be a circle which would be equal to . Substitute 1 for r to get Area of the Base = . Since = 3.141592654, then the Area of the Base = 3.141592654 square meters. The volume of the container would be equal to the Area of the Base Times the Height, which would then be equal to: 3.141592654 * 3 = 9.424777961 cubic meters. The formula for the volume of the container is . Since is the formula for the area of the base, then the formula for the volume of the container becomes: Area of the Base * Height.
