Are you looking for an answer to the question of how to find the surface area of a cylindrical tank? Or maybe you just need to know the cylindrical tank surface area formula? Whatever you need, try this cylindrical tank calculator. Both the calculator and supporting information are available on this page.

## Cylindrical tank surface area formula

How to find the surface area of a cylindrical tank? Let’s have a look at the cylindrical tank surface area formula:

`A = 2πr(r + h)`

where `r`

is the radius of the base and `h`

is the height of the cylindrical tank.

## Example of how to calculate the surface area of a cylindrical tank

We know the cylindrical tank surface area formula, and what’s next? Well, let’s solve an example problem with the formula.

For a cylindrical tank with the base radius r = 4 cm and the height h = 7 cm, we can calculate its surface area like so:

`A = 2πr(r + h)`

`A = 2π * 4 * (4 + 7) = 276.46 cm`
