# Cylindrical formula

The Cylindrical Formula is the most straightforward and used formula for fast measurements. That said, it doesn’t mean that the method is the most accurate and should not be used to calculate all kinds of logs, due to their unique structures and timber being a highly valued and prized commodity.

Cylindrical formula is mostly used to measure pulp- and fuelwood and is the conventional method used in Central-Europe.

**Formula:**

V = π x r² x h

Where:

r = radius

h = height
