Capsule Surface Area Calculator

If you ever had problems with remembering geometrical formulas, our online geometry calculators are bound to help you. This is a capsule surface area calculator that helps you find the surface area of a capsule in a few simple steps. If you want to know more about the capsule surface area formula, look no further – simply keep reading to get the answer!

Capsule surface area formula

The surface area of a capsule is found according to the following formula:

A = 4πr2 + 2πrh

where r is radius and h is height.

Example of how to calculate the surface area of a capsule

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

For a capsule with the radius r = 3 cm and the height h = 6 cm, we can calculate its surface area like so:

  • A = 4πr2 + 2πrh
  • A = 4π * 32 + 2π * 3 * 6 = 226.19 cm2

Now you know how to find the surface area of a capsule. If you need a handy calculation tool to find the surface area of a capsule, try out our capsule surface area calculator.
