How is the formula for the volume of a cylinder derived?
Drag and drop the correct word into each box to complete the explanation.
The rectangular prism and the cylinder have equal heights.
The area of the base of the rectangular prism and every cross section parallel to its base is πr2πr2 .
The area of the base of the cylinder and every cross section parallel to its base is ---------.
By Cavalieri's principle, this rectangular prism and this cylinder have------- volumes.
The volume of the rectangular prism is πr2hπr2h .
Therefore, the volume of the cylinder is πr2hπr2h .
