I want to plot a cylinder with height that goes from -4 to 4 and radius 2?

Yes, I have read that but it didn't tell you how to change the height or make it go from negative values to positive values which we always have in mathematics problems.

I can’t determine if this is a homework assignment or not.
The plot is straightforward:
r = 2;
t = linspace(0, 2*pi);
cyl = [r*cos(t); r*sin(t)];
plot(cyl(1,:), cyl(2,:))
surf([cyl(1,:); cyl(1,:)], [cyl(2,:); cyl(2,:)], [-4*ones(1,size(cyl,2)); 4*ones(1,size(cyl,2))])
grid on
axis equal

My code will plot the cylinder, as you requested.
I leave the rest to you.
