To solve for the volume of a cylinder, would the equation be:

3.14 x Radius squared x Height

So lets assume that I have a sonotube that is 16" in diameter and 32" tall. The radius is half of the diameter which would equal 8 inches therefore the equation would be:

3.14 x 8 squared x 32
3.14 x 64 x 32
= 6430.72 cu.in. or 3.72 cu.ft.??

I'm trying re-teach myself math by applying it to something that I enjoy.

Yeah, I was surprised how much math is involved in speaker and subwoofer building when I first started.

It's just geometry.
