- The axis of a right circular cylinder is the line joining the centers of the bases.
- For any oblique or non-oblique sections which do not pass any one base, the center of which is at the axis.
- A right circular cylinder can be formed by revolving a rectangle about one side as axis of revolution.
- Every section of a right circular cylinder made by a cutting plane containing two elements and parallel to the axis is a rectangle.
