Volume of Cylinders and Spheres

How do you find the volume of cylinders and spheres?

Similarly to the volume of right prisms, the area of cylinders can be found by working out the area of the cross-section and multiplying by the length. The volume of a sphere, however, has a different formula, which will be discussed in this post about the volume of cylinders and spheres in Prelim Standard Math.
