1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
A right circular cylinder has a radius of 2.36 cm and a length of 44.0 cm. Its volume is ____ cm3?

2. Relevant equations

V=pi*r^2*l


(i am not sure if this equation is correct because the say to use height and i am given length)

3. The attempt at a solution

Volume= 770 cm3
