I have this problem. Consider a cylinder(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I shine a laser beam on the cylinder to view a field that has the dimensions of (=) being 500 microns x 500 microns. The cylinder is say100,000 microns in length, 5,000 in width. I determine that 5 objects of R exist within the field of view of each (=) area for the entire cylinder. What is calculus equation that I should use to determine total number of R objects on the entire outside area of the cylinder ? Thanks for any help (ps/ not a homework question, a research question).
