###### Topic Notes
As long as we have the diameter or radius and the height of the cylinder, we are able to find its surface area in no time. The surface area of a cylinder is basically adding the surface are of a rectangle and two circles together. The most difficult part is to find the circumference of the circles, which is also one of the sides of the rectangle.
