**Question 1.
**

**What is the least number of solid metallic spheres, each of 6 cm diameter, that should be melted and recast to form a solid metal cone whose height is 45 cm and diameter 12 cm ?**

**Solution:**

Diameter of cone = 12cm

∴ Radius (r

_{1}) = \(\frac { 12 }{ 2 }\)= 6cm

Height (A) = 45 cm

∴ Volume = \(\frac { 1 }{ 3 }\)πR

^{2}h

= \(\frac { 1 }{ 3 }\) x π x 6 x 6 x 45 cm

^{3 }= 540 π cm

^{2 }∴ Volume of solid spheres = 540 π cm

^{3 }Diameter of one sphere = 6cm

∴ Radius = \(\frac { 6 }{ 2 }\) = 3 cm

∴ Volume of one spherical ball

**Solution:**

Diameter of cylinder = 12 cm

∴ Radius (r) = \(\frac { 12 }{ 2 }\) = 6 cm

Height (h) = 15 cm

Volume of ice-cream in cylinder = πr²h = π x 6 x 6 x 15 = 540π cm

^{-1}. Calculate, in minutes, the time it takes to fill the tank.**Solution:**

Diameter of cylindrical tank = 2.8 m 2.8

∴ Radius (r) = \(\frac { 2.8 }{ 2 }\) = 1.4 m

and height (h) = 4.2 m

Volume of water filled in it = πr

^{2}h

**Question 11.
**

∴ Water flow in 1 hr 15 minutes i.e. in \(\frac { 5 }{ 4 }\) hr

**Question 12.
**

**The given figure shows the cross-section of a cone, a cylinder and a hemisphere all with the same diameter 10 cm, and the other dimensions are as shown. Calculate :**

**(a) the total surface area,**

**(b) the total volume of the solid and**

**(c) the density of the material if its total weight is 1.7 kg.**

**Question 13.
**

**A solid, consisting of a right circular cone, standing on a hemisphere, is placed upright, in a right circular cylinder, full of water, and touches the bottom. Find the volume of water left in the cylinder, having given that the radius of the cylinder is 3 cm and its height is 6 cm; the radius of the hemisphere is 2 cm and the height of cone is 4 cm. Give your answer to the nearest cubic centimetre. [1998]**

**Solution:**

Radius of cylinder = 3 cm

and height = 6 cm

Radius of hemisphere = 2 cm

and height of cone = 4 cm

Volume of water in the cylinder when it is full

= πr^{2}h = π x (3)^{2} x 6 cm^{3} = 54π cm^{3
}Volume of water displaced = Volume of cone + volume of hemisphere

**(i) he total area of the internal surface, excluding the base;**

**(ii) the internal volume of the container in m**

^{3}[1999]**Solution:**

Radius of cylinder = 3.5 m

and height = 7 m.

(i) Total surface area of container excluding the base = curved surface area of cylinder + area of hemisphere = 2πrh + 2πr

**Question 15.
**

**An exhibition tent is in the form of a cylinder surmounted by a cone. The height of the tent above the ground is 85 m and height of the cylindrical part is 50 m. If the diameter of the base is 168 m, find the quantity of canvas required to make the tent. Allow 20% extra for fold and for stitching. Give your answer to the nearest m**

^{2}. [2001]**Solution:**

Total height of the tent = 85 m.

Daimeter of the base = 168 m.

∴ Radius (r) = \(\frac { 168 }{ 2 }\) = 84 m

Height of cylindrical part = 50 m

Then height of conical part (h) = 85 – 50 = 35 m

**P.Q.
**

**The total surface area of a hollow cylinder, which is open from both sides is 3575 cm**

^{2}; area of the base ring is 357.5 cm^{2}and height is 14 cm. Find the thickness of the cylinder.**Solution:**

Total surface area of a hollow cylinder = 3575 cm

^{2 }Area of base ring = 357.5 cm

^{2 }Height = 14 cm.

Let external radius = R

and internal radius = r

and let thickness of cylinder = (R – r) = d

∴ Total surface area = 2πRh + 2πrh + 2π (R

^{2}– r

^{2})

= 2πh (R + r) + 2π (R + r) (R – r)

= 2π (R + r) [h + R – r]

= 2π (R + r) (h + d)

= 2π (R + r) (14 + d)

But 2π (R + r) (14 + d) = 3575 ….(i)

and area of the base = π (R

^{2}– r

^{2}) = 357.5

⇒ π (R + r) ( R – r) = 357.5

⇒ π (R + r)d = 357.5 ….(ii)

^{3}, will be required to fill the vessel completely.**Solution:**

Diameter of hemisphere = 7cm

Diameter of the base of a cone = 7cm

∴ Radius (r) = \(\frac { 7 }{ 2 }\) cm = 3.5 cm

Height (h) = 8cm.
