For calculating c:b's, of course diameter works equally well...but I'm for offering him the real volume calculation. Many of these questioneers are young enough to never have calculated the volume of a cylinder in their lives. Why not make it a complete learning moment? and avoid possible confusion and future errors.
Learn the short-cuts after you know the fundamentals...reasonable?
