In real life there are many examples of cylinders like
All cylinders have a base, a top and a curved face.
Learn how to calculate the surface area of a cylinder in this video.
From the images and video viewed earlier:
Surface Area of a cylinder is the Area of top and bottom plus Area of the curved side.
Surface Area = 2(Area of circular top) + (circumference of top) by height of cylinder
