Often we need to know how much of a solid, liquid, or gaseous matter a container can contain. Taking the example of the soda can further, suppose you want to know how much soda a cylinder of certain measurements can contain, you simply insert the measurements of the cylinder into the formula and you have your answer! A cylinder is one of the most common types of containers which we can see around and hence, there is a need to find the volume of a cylinder.
