Usage Examples English
  • Thus, the center of mass of a circular cylinder of constant density has its center of mass on the axis of the cylinder.
  • The solution to potential flow around a circular cylinder is analytic and well known. It is the superposition of uniform flow, a doublet, and a vortex.
  • For an object with a smooth surface, and non-fixed separation points—like a sphere or circular cylinder—the drag coefficient may vary with Reynolds number "Re", even up to very high values ("Re" of the order 107).
  • A right circular cylinder is a cylinder whose generatrices are perpendicular to the bases. Thus, in a right circular cylinder, the generatrix and the height have the same measurements.
  • A cross-section of a solid right circular cylinder extending between two bases is a disk if the cross-section is parallel to the cylinder's base, or an elliptic region (see diagram at right) if it is neither parallel nor perpendicular to the base.

  • In the literature the unadorned term cylinder could refer to either of these or to an even more specialized object, the "right circular cylinder".
  • Another adaptation works for an ellipse realized as the intersection of a plane with a right circular cylinder.
  • Mirrors that are intended to concentrate sunlight onto a long pipe may be a circular cylinder or of a parabolic cylinder.
  • These include the sphere, where the three semi axes are equal; the oblate (see reference ellipsoid) and prolate spheroids, where two semi axes are equal; the degenerate ones where one semi axes is infinite (the elliptical and circular cylinder) and the unbounded sheet where two semi axes are infinite.
