Example2.1.13Cylinder Volume

The volume \(V\text{,}\) in cm3, of a cylinder with height \(h\) and radius \(r\text{,}\) both in cm, is given by \(V=\pi r^2h\text{.}\) Assume that a can of tuna has a radius of 4 cm and a height of 2 cm.

  1. Calculate the volume of this can in terms of \(\pi\text{.}\)

  2. Calculate the volume of this can and round the answer to four significant digits. Use the \(\pi\) button on your calculator, or use \(\pi\approx3.1415927\text{.}\)
