### What is Meant by the Surface Area of a Cylinder?

In Mathematics, the term surface area generally defines the area of the three-dimensional shapes. The surface area is defined as the sum of all the areas of all the shapes that cover the surface of the shape. The surface area of the cylinder is calculated as follows:

The surface area of the cylinder = Area of the top and bottom surface + Area of the side

Since the top and bottom surface of the cylinder is a circle, then the surface area is

Surface area = 2 (Area of a circle) + perimeter of the top(height)

Hence, the surface area of a cylinder = 2πr2 + 2πrh square units
