Compute the surface area?

Compute the surface area of the portion of the plane 3x+y+2z=6 inside the cylinder x^2+y^2=4. (Answer: 2pi*sqrt(14)) The formula for the surface area of a cylinder is A=2pi*r^2+2pi*r*h But how do I find the radius and height? This is a topic of surface integrals.

Thank you, guys. I'll search for the right way to do it.
