Let us carry out a small activity. Take a coin. We know that coin is circular in shape. Now place another coin on the first coin and so on. You will see that when you place such coins, the structure that you get is a cylinder, which is three dimensional. Let us learn about the volume of a Cylinder in this chapter.
A cylinder is a three-dimensional object with two round flat bases and one curved side. It has a curved surface in the middle. The base and the top surface are identical. That means the bases are always parallel and congruent to each other. It has no vertices.
