Q 1.

Two cubes each of volume 64 cm3 are joined end to end. Find the surface area of the resulting cuboid.

SOLUTION:

Soln. : Volume of each cube = 64 cm3
Let the edge of each cube = 2
x3 = 64 cm3
x = 4 cm
Now, Length of the resulting cuboid l = 2x cm = 8 cm
Breadth of the resulting cuboid b = x cm = 4 cm
Height of the resulting cuboid h = x cm = 4 cm
∴ Surface area of the cuboid = 2 (lb + bh + hl)
= 2 [(8 × 4) + (4 × 4) + (4 × 8)] cm2
= 2 [32 + 16 + 32] cm2 = 2 [80] cm2 = 160 cm2.

Q 2.

∴ Curved surface area = 2πr2

Total height of vessel = 13 cm
∴ Height of cylinder = (13 - 7)cm = 6 cm and radius(r) = 7 cm
∴ Curved surface area of cylinder = 2πrh
∴ Inner surface area of vessel = (308 + 264)cm2
= 572 cm2

Q 3.

A toy is in the form of a cone of radius 3.5 cm mounted on a hemisphere of same radius. The total height of the toy is 15.5 cm. Find the total surface area of the toy.

SOLUTION:

Soln. : Let r and h be the radius of cone, hemisphere and height of cone
and h = (15.5 3.5) cm
= 12.0 cm
Also l2 = h2 + r2 = 122 + (3.5)2
= 156.25
l = 12.5 cm
Curved surface area of the conical part = πrl
Curved surface area of the hemispherical part = 2πr2
Total surface area of the toy = πrl + 2πr2 = πr (l + 2r)

= 11 × (12.5 + 7) cm2 = 11 × 19.5 cm2 = 214.5 cm2

If the height and diameter of the cylindrical part are 2.1 m and 4 m respectively, and the slant height of the top is 2.8 m, find the area of the canvas used for making the tent. Also, find the cost of the canvas of the tent at the rate of ₹ 500 per m2. (Note that the base of the tent will not be covered with canvas.)

SOLUTION:

Soln. : For cylindrical part :
Radius (r) and height (h) = 2.1 m
∴ Curved surface area
For conical part :
Slant height (l) = 2.8 m and base radius (r) = 2 m
∴ Curved surface area
∴ Total surface area
= [Curved surface area of the cylindrical part] + [Curved surface area of conical part]

Cost of the canvas used :
Cost of 1 m2 of canvas = ₹ 500
∴ Cost of 44 m2 of canvas = ₹ 500 × 44 = ₹ 22000.

Q 8.

SOLUTION:

Soln. : For cylindrical part:
Height = 2.4 cm and diameter = 1.4 cm
⇒ Radius (r) = 0.7 cm
∴ Total surface area of the cylindrical part
= 2πrh + 2πr2 = 2πr [h + r]

For conical part :
Base radius (r) = 0.7 cm and height (h) = 2.4 cm
∴ Slant height (l)

∴ Curved surface area of the conical part

Base area of the conical part

Total surface area of the remaining solid
= [(Total surface area of cylindrical part)
+ (Curved surface area of conical part)
- (Base area of the conical part)]

Hence, total surface area to the nearest cm2 is 18cm2.

The diameter of the model is 3 cm and its length is 12 cm. If each cone has a height of 2 cm, find the volume of air contained in the model that Rachel made. (Assume the outer and inner dimensions of the model to be nearly the same.)

SOLUTION:

Soln. : Here, diameter = 3 cm ⇒ Radius (r)
Total height = 12 cm
Height of a cone (h1) = 2 cm
∴ Height of both cones = 2 2 = 4 cm
⇒ Height of the cylinder (h2) = (12 - 4) cm = 8 cm.
Now, volume of the cylindrical part = πr2h2
Volume of both conical parts
∴ Volume of the whole model

A gulab jamun, contains sugar syrup up to about 30% of its volume. Find approximately how much syrup would be found in 45 gulab jamun, each shaped like a cylinder with two hemispherical ends with length 5 cm and diameter 2.5 cm (see figure).

SOLUTION:

Soln. : Since, a gulab jamun is like a cylinder with hemispherical ends.
Total height of the gulab jamun = 5 cm.
Diameter = 2.8 cm ⇒ Radius = 1.4 cm
∴ Length (height) of the cylindrical part
= 5 cm - (1.4 + 1.4) cm = 5 cm - 2.8 cm = 2.2 cm

Now, volume of the cylindrical part = πr2h
and volume of both the hemispherical ends
∴ Volume of a gulab jamun

Volume of 45 gulab jamuns

Since, the quantity of syrup in gulab jamuns = 30% of [volume] = 30% of

= 338 cm2 (approx.)

SOLUTION:

Soln. : Dimensions of the cuboid are 15 cm, 10 cm and 3.5 cm.
∴ Volume of the cuboid
= 525 cm3
Since each depression is conical in shape with base radius (r) = 0.5 cm and depth (h) = 1.4 cm,
∴ Volume of each depression

Since there are 4 depressions,
∴ Total volume of 4 depressions
Now, volume of the wood in entire stand
= [Volume of the wooden cuboid] - [Volume of 4 depressions]

= 523.53 cm2

SOLUTION:

Soln. : Height of the big cylinder (h) = 220 cm
∴ Volume of the big cylinder = πr2h = π(12)2 × 220 cm3
Also, height of smaller cylinder (h1) = 60 cm
Base radius (r1) = 8 cm
∴ Volume of the smaller cylinder
= π(8)2 × 60 cm3
∴ Volume of iron pole
= [Volume of big cylinder]
+ [Volume of the smaller cylinder]
= π × 220 × 122 + π × 60 × 82 cm3
= 3.14[220 × 12 × 12 + 60 × 8 × 8]cm3

Mass of iron
= 892.2624 kg = 892.26 kg.

Soln. : Height of the conical part = 120 cm.
Base radius of the conical part = 60 cm.
∴ Volume of the conical part
Radius of the hemispherical part = 60 cm.
∴ Volume of the hemispherical part
∴ Volume of the solid = [Volume of conical part] + [Volume of hemispherical part]

Volume of the cylinder = πr2h

⇒ Volume of water in the cylinder

Let the radius of the new big sphere be R.
∴ Volume of the new sphere

Since, the two volume must be equal.

R3 = 1728 R = 12 cm
Thus, the required radius of the resulting sphere = 12 cm.

Q 20.

A 20 m deep well with diameter 7 m is dug and the earth from digging is evenly spread out to form a platform 22 m by 14 m. Find the height of the platform.

SOLUTION:

Soln. : Diameter of the cylindrical well = 7 m
⇒ Radius of the cylinder (r)
Depth of the well (h) = 20 m
∴ Volume
= 22 × 7 × 5m3
⇒ Volume of the earth taken out = 22 × 7 × 5 m3
Now this earth is spread out to form a cuboidal platform having length = 22 m, breadth = 14 m
Let h be the height of the platform.
∴ Volume of the platform = 22 × 14 × h m3
∴ 22 × 14 × h = 22 × 7 × 5

Thus, the required height of the platform is 2.5 m.

Q 21.

A well of diameter 3 m is dug 14 m deep. The earth taken out of it has been spread evenly all around it in shape of a circular ring of width 4 m to form an embankment. Find the height of the embankment.

SOLUTION:

Soln. : Diameter of cylindrical well (d) = 3 m
⇒ Radius of the cylindrical well
Depth of the well (h) = 14 m
∴ Volume

Let the height of the embankment = H metre.
Internal radius of the embankment (r) = 1.5 m.
External radius of the embankment R = (4 + 1.5) m
= 5.5 m.
∴ Volume of the embankment
= πR2H - πr2H = πH [R2 - r2] = πH (R + r) (R - r)

Since, Volume of the embankment = Volume of the cylindrical well

Thus, the required height of the embankment = 1.125 m.

⇒ Radius (r) and height (h) = 15 cm
∴ Volume of total ice cream

For conical and hemispherical part of ice-cream:
Diameter = 6 cm ⇒ radius (R) = 3 cm
Height of conical part (H) = 12 cm

Volume = (Volume of the conical part) + (Volume of the hemispherical part)

Let number of ice-cream cones required to fill the total ice cream = n.

Thus, the required number of cones is 10.

Q 23.

Soln. : For a circular coin:
Diameter = 1.75 cm
Thickness (h)
∴ Volume = πr2h

For a cuboid:
Length (l) = 10 cm,
and Height (h) = 3.5 cm
∴ Volume =
Number of coins

Thus, the required number of coins = 400.

A cylindrical bucket, 32 cm high and with radius of base 18 cm, is filled with sand. This bucket is emptied on the ground and a conical heap of sand is formed. If the height of the conical heap is 24 cm, find the radius and slant height of the heap.

SOLUTION:

Soln. : For the cylindrical bucket:
Radius (r) = 18 cm and height (h) = 32 cm
Volume = πr2h
⇒ Volume of the sand
For the conical heap:
Height (H) = 24 cm & let radius of the base be (R).
∴ Volume of conical heap

∵ Volume of the conical heap sand = Volume of the sand

Let 'l' be the slant height of the conical heap of the sand.

l2 = R2 + H2
l2 = 242 + 362
l2 = (12 × 2)2 + (12 × 3)2
l2 = 122[22 + 32]
l2 = 122 × 13

Thus, the required radius = 36 cm and slant height

Q 25.

Water in a canal, 6 m wide and 1.5 m deep, is flowing with a speed of 10 km/h. How much area will it irrigate in 30 minutes, if 8 cm of standing water is needed ?

SOLUTION:

Soln. : Width of the canal = 6 m, Depth of the canal = 1.5 m
Length of the water column in 1 hr = 10 km
∴ Length of the water column in 30 minutes
∴ Volume of water flown in

Since the above amount (volume) of water is spread in the form of a cuboid of height as 8 cm Let the area of the cuboid = a
∴ Volume of the cuboid = Area × Height

Thus,

= 562500m2 = 56.25 hectares
Thus, the required area = 56.25 hectares.

Q 26.

A farmer connects a pipe of internal diameter 20 cm from a canal into a cylindrical tank in her field, which is 10 m in diameter and 2 m deep. If water flows through the pipe at the rate of 3 km/h, in how much time will the tank be filled?

SOLUTION:

Soln. : Diameter of the pipe = 20 cm
⇒ Radius of the pipe (r) = cm = 10 cm
Since, the water flows through the pipe at 3 km/hr.
∴ Length of water column per hour(h) = 3 km
= 3 × 1000 m = 3000 × 100 cm = 300000 cm.
∴ Volume of water = πr2h = π × 102 × 300000 cm3
= π × 30000000 cm3
Now, for the cylindrical tank,
Diameter = 10 m ⇒ Radius (R) = = 5 × 100 cm = 500 cm
Height (H) = 2 m = 2 × 100 cm = 200 cm
∴ Volume of the cylindrical tank = πr2H = π × (500)2 × 200 cm3
Now, time required to fill the tank

SOLUTION:

Soln. : Here, the radius of the open side (r1) = 10 cm
The radius of the upper base (r2) = 4 cm
Slant height (l) = 15 cm
∴ Area of the material required
= [Curved surface area of the frustum] + [Area of the top end]
= π(r1 + r2) l + πr22

∴ Volume of the frustum

∴ Cost of milk = ₹ 20
= ₹ 208.998 ≈ ₹ 209
Now, slant height of the given frustum

∴ Curved surface area = π(r1 + r2)l

Area of the bottom = πr2

∴ Total area of metal required
= 1758.4 cm2 + 200.96 cm2 = 1959.36 cm2
Cost of metal required = ₹
= ₹ 156.75.

Let l be the length and D be diameter of the wire drawn from the frustum. Since the wire is in the form of a cylinder,
∴ Volume of the wire = πr2l

∵ [Volume of the frustum] = [Volume of the wire]

= 7964.44m
Thus, the required length of the wire = 7964.44 m

SOLUTION:

Soln. : Since diameter of the cylinder = 10 cm
∴ Radius of the cylinder (r)
⇒ Length of wire in one round = 2πr
= 2 × 3.14 × 5 cm = 31.4 cm
∵ Diameter of wire = 3 mm
∴ The thickness of cylinder covered in one round
⇒ Number of rounds (turns) of the wire to cover
∴ Length of wire required to cover the whole surface = Length of wire required to complete 40 rounds = 40 × 31.4 cm = 1256 cm
∴ Volume of wire = πr2l
∵ Density of wire = 8.88 gm/cm3
∴ Weight of the wire
= [Volume of the wire] × density

= 787.97 g = 788 g (approx.)

A cistern, internally measuring 150 cm × 120 cm × 110 cm, has 129600 cm3 of water in it. Porous bricks are placed in the water until the cistern is full to the brim. Each brick absorbs one-seventeenth of its own volume of water. How many bricks can be put in without overflowing the water, each being 22.5 cm × 7.5 cm × 6.5 cm?

SOLUTION:

Soln. : ∵ Dimensions of the cistern are 150 cm, 120 cm and 100 cm.
∴ Volume of the cistern = 150 × 120 × 110 cm3 = 1980000 cm3
Volume of water contained in the cistern = 129600 cm3
∴ Free space (volume) which is not filled with water = (1980000 - 129600) cm3 = 1850400 cm3
Now, volume of one brick = (22.5 × 7.5 × 6.5) cm3 = 1096.875 cm3
∴ Volume of water absorbed by one brick
Let n bricks can be put in the cistern.
∴ Volume of water absorbed by n bricks
∴ [volume occupied by n bricks] = [(free space in the cistern + volume of water absorbed by n-bricks)]

= 1792.4102 ≈ 1792
Thus, 1792 bricks can be put in the cistern.

Q 35.

In one fortnight of a given month, there was a rainfall of 10 cm in a river valley. If the area of the valley is 97280 km2, show that the total rainfall was approximately equivalent to the addition to the normal water of three rivers each 1072 km long, 75 m wide and 3 m deep.

SOLUTION:

Soln. : Volume of three rivers = 3 {(Surface area of a river) × Depth}

Volume of rainfall = (Surface area) × (Height of rainfall)

Since, 0.7236 km3 ≠ 9.728 km3
∴ The additional water in the three rivers is not equivalent to the rainfall.

For the cylindrical part
Diameter = 8 cm ⇒ Radius (r) = 4 cm
Height = 10 cm ⇒ Curved Surface area

For the frustum :
Height (H) = 22 - 10 = 12 cm
∴ Slant height (l)

∴ Surface area = π (r1 + r2)l

Area of tin required = [Area of the frustum] + [Area of cylindrical portion]

= (curved surface area) + (base surface area) + (top surface area)
= πl (r1 + r2) + πr22 + πr12 = π (r1 + r2) l + π (r12 + r22)
= π [(r1 + r2) l + r12 + r22]
