{{#category_index:H|horizontal cylinder}}
A model used in calculating potential-field effects; a small-diameter horizontal cylinder so long that the ends of the cylinder do not produce any effects. The model is equivalent to a horizontal line whose mass per unit of length is ρ*A*, where ρ is the density contrast and *A* is the cross-sectional area of the cylinder.
