π = 22/7
Height (h) of cylinder = 14 cm
Let the diameter of the cylinder be d.
Curved surface area of cylinder = 88 cm2
⇒ 2πrh = 88 cm2 (r is the radius of the base of the cylinder)
⇒ πdh = 88 cm2 (d = 2r)
⇒ 22/7 x d x 14cm = 88 cm2
⇒ d = 2cm
Therefore, the diameter of the base of the cylinder is 2 cm.
