Relation in radius and height of a cylinder of given volume

Suppose the volume of a cylinder (think about the volume of a can) is given by V = πr2h where r is the radius of the cylinder and h is the height of the cylinder. Now suppose the volume of the can is 100 cubic centimeters.
How do would you write h as a function of r?

What is the measurement of the height if the radius of the cylinder is 2 centimeters?
and how would I graph this function?
