It is given in the question that,

Circumference of the base of the cylinder = 88cm

Height of the cylinder = 60cm

Hence,

Curved surface area = Circumference× height

= 88 × 60

= 5280 cm2

Now,

The circumference of the base = $2\pi r=88$ cm

Hence,

The radius of the base(r) = $\frac{88}{2\pi}$

$\frac{88\times7}{2\times22}$

= 14cm

Hence,

We can find the volume as follows:

Volume of the cylinder = $\pi r^2h$

$\frac{22}{7}\times(14)^2\times60$

= 22 × 2 × 14 × 60

= 36960cm3
