First, isolate `sqrt(h^2+r^2)` . To do so, divide both sides by `pi r` .



Then, eliminate the radical. So, square both sides of the equation.



To have h^2 only at the right side, subtract both sides by r^2.



And, to have h only, take the square root of both sides of equation.



Then, simplify left side.






Hence, `h=(sqrt(A^2-pi^2r^4))/(pir)` .
