# What is this cylindrical object?

What is this cylindrical object with radius z and height a?

Disclaimer: I heard this from my boss so thought I'd post it here.

• It's a cylinder. Anything else? – IAmInPLS Jan 4 '17 at 10:50
• @IAmInPLS You should be able to figure it out using a basic maths formula for a cylinder and some lateral thinking – TheLethalCipher Jan 4 '17 at 10:51

• @AmruthA From where? My boss told it me so thought I'd post it here – TheLethalCipher Jan 4 '17 at 10:57
• @AmruthA Either way I've seen copied questions posted here so I don't know what the problem is, I'll add a disclaimer into the question from where I heard it – TheLethalCipher Jan 4 '17 at 11:02

It's

a pizza.
its volume is $pi \times z^2 \times a$ or pizza

The volume of the cylinder is $Pi*z*z*a$
