Ask.com Answer for: how many edges does a cylinder have
A cylinder has 2 bases and 1 curved surface, no vertices and technically does not have any edges.
Because a cylinder has a curved surface, it is technically not a polyhedron. The terms "faces" and "edges" only apply to polyhedra which have flat surfaces, straight edges and vertices.
The number of edges on a cylinder depends on the edge, which is usually defined as a straight line or edge. In this case, a cylinder has no edges, so the answer is zero. You can find more information here: http://mathforum.org/library/drmath/view/54701.html

Two, one at each end connecting the circle part and hte long parts together. As there are no corners, it counds as one edge.
