In mathematics, solid geometry was the traditional name for the geometry of three-dimensional Euclidean space — for practical purposes the kind of space we live in.
Eudoxus established their measurement, proving the pyramid and cone to have one-third the volume of a prism and cylinder on the same base and of the same height, and was probably the discoverer of a proof that the volume of a sphere is the cube of its radii.
Analytic geometry and vector techniques have a major impact by allowing the systematic use of linear equations and matrix algebra; this becomes more important for higher dimensions.

As if this were not confusing enough, the term "cylinder" when used without qualification commonly refers to the particular case of a solid of circular cross section in which the centers of the circles all lie on a single line (i.e., a circular cylinder).
A cylinder is called a right cylinder if it is "straight" in the sense that its cross sections lie directly on top of each other; otherwise, the cylinder is said to be oblique.

 Solid geometry Summary
If a cone and a cylinder have bases (shown in color) with equal areas, and both have identical heights, then the volume of the cone is one-third the volume of the cylinder.
In mathematics, solid geometry was the traditional name for the geometry of three-dimensional Euclidean space — for practical purposes the kind of space we live in.
Eudoxus established their measurement, proving the pyramid and cone to have one-third the volume of a prism and cylinder on the same base and of the same height, and was probably the discoverer of a proof that the volume of a sphere is the cube of its radii.

I assume you're talking about a finite cylinder; the "ordinary kind" with two parallel bases, which are usually circular (as opposed, say, to an infinite cylinder with an infinite lateral surface and no bases).

 1024 Cylinder Limit, How Windows NT Gets Drive Geometry
While Windows NT does not have an internal limit to the number of cylinders it can address, there are some hardware configurations where Windows NT must contend with a 10 bit (1024 cylinder) limitation, imposed by the supporting hardware (the hard drive controller or system BIOS in most cases).
Because larger disks may have more than 1024 cylinders, there are several drive translation algorithms that increase the other two parameters to reduce the cylinder count.
These translated or logical parameters are called "apparent geometry." The physical geometry is called "actual geometry." A drive parameter table has reserved areas for the apparent geometry.

Choosing the wrong geometry settings and then saving any lost partitions based on those faulty settings might make it harder or impossible to recover your data.
A common trick introduced with HD bigger than 504 MB (1023 cylinders, 16 heads, 63 sectors) was to use a geometry (Cylinder/Heads/Sector) different from the physical geometry (Extended CHS or large mode adressing).
When the partition table is cleared or corrupted, the physical disk geometry may be used instead.

 Hard disk hd hdd drives cylinder geometry physical circuitry structure
A cylinder is basically the set of all tracks that all the heads are currently located at.
The name comes from the fact that these tracks form a skeletal cylinder because they are equal-sized circles stacked one on top of the other in space, as shown in the figure given before.
The addressing of the factors of the disk is traditionally done by referring to cylinders, heads and sectors (CHS).
