Cylinder (EntityTopic, 14)
From Higher Dimensions Database
A cylinder is a special case of a prism where the base is a circle.
Equations
- Variables:
r ⇒ radius of cylinder
h ⇒ height of cylinder
- All points (x, y, z) that lie on the surface of a cylinder will satisfy the following equations:
x^{2} + y^{2} = r^{2}
abs(z) ≤ h/2
-- or --
x^{2} + y^{2} < r^{2}
abs(z) = h/2
- All points (x, y, z) that lie on the edges of a cylinder will satisfy the following equations:
x^{2} + y^{2} = r^{2}
abs(z) = h/2
- The hypervolumes of a cylinder are given by:
total edge length = 4πr
surface area = 2πr(r+h)
volume = πr^{2}h
- The planar cross-sections (n) of a cylinder are:
[!x,!y] ⇒ rectangle with width (2rcos(πn/2)), height (h)
[!z] ⇒ circle of radius (r)
Homology groups
All homology groups are zero unless stated. Here X is the shape in the given frame, and nZ is the direct sum of n copies of the group of integers Z.
- 1-frame (two circles)
- H_{0}X = 2ℤ, H_{1}X = 2ℤ
- 2-frame (2 disks and a tube)
- H_{0}X = ℤ, H_{1}X = 0, H_{2}X = ℤ
- 3-frame (solid cylinder)
- H_{0}X = ℤ
Cylindrogram
A cylindrogram is the surface of revolution of a parallelogram, just as a cylinder is the surface of revolution of a rectangle. It can also be thought of as a cylinder with a cone removed from one end and placed on the other. As such, this shape has the same volume as a cylinder with the same radius and height.
