Step by Step Solution

Step 1

The picture below shows the cylinder with the radius 5cm and the height 8cm.

Step 2

To calculate the volume, we can use the formula for the volume of the cylinder. Note that r is the radius and h is the height.

V = πr^{2}h

Step 3

The values for r, h and π are given. So, we just substitute r with 5, h with 8 and π with 3.14.

Step 4

Now, the calculated number 628 carries no meaning unless we include the unit for it. Since the radius and height are in cm, the unit for volume will be cm^{3}. Hence:
