What length of a solid cylinder 2 cm in diameter must be taken to recast into a hollow cylinder of length 16 cm, external diameter 20 cm and thickness 2.5 mm ?
Length of hollow cylinder = 16 cm
External diameter = 20 cm
and thickness = 2.5 mm = 0.25 cm
∴External radius (R) = 202 = 10 cm
and internal radius (r) = 10 – 0.25 = 9.75 cm
∴ Volume of the material used in hollow cylinder
= πh (R² – r²) = π x 16 (10² – 9.75²) cm²
= 16π (100.00 – 95.0625) = 16TC (4.9375) cm3
∴ Volume of solid cylinder = 16 x 4.93 75πcm3 Diameter = 2 cm
∴Radius (r) = 22 = 1 cm
Let h be the height of the cylinder, then
πr2h = 16 x 4.9375π
⇒ π (1)2 h = 16 x 4.93 75π
h = 16 x 4.9375 = 79
Hence height = 79 cm
A cylindrical vessel having diameter equal to its height is full of water which is poured into two identical cylindrical vessels with diameter 42 cm and jteight 21 cm which are filled completely. Find the diameter of the cylindrical vessel.
Diameter of each small cylindrical vessels = 42 cm
∴Radius of each vessel (r) = 422 = 21 cm
Height (h) = 21 cm
∴ Volume of each cylindrical vessal = πr2h = π (21 )2 (21) = 9261K cm3
and volume of both vessels = 2 x 9261π = 18522π cm3
Now volume of larger cylindrical vessel = 185 22π cm3
Let R be the radius of the vessel, then Height (H) = diameter = 2R,
∴Volume πR2H = πR2 x 2R = 2πR2
∴ 2πR3 = 18522π
⇒ R3 = 185222 = 9261
⇒ R3 = 9261 = (21 )3
∴ R = 21
∴Diameter = 2R = 2×21=42 cm
50 circular plates each of diameter 14 cm and thickness 0.5 cm are placed one above the other to form a right circular cylinder. Find its total surface area.
Diameter of each circular plate = 14 cm
∴ Radius (r) = 142 = 7 cm .
Thickness (h) = 0.5 cm
∴Height of 50 plates placing one above the other
= 0.5 x 50 = 25 cm
∴ Curved surface area of the cylinder so formed = 2πrh
= 2 x 27 x 7 x 25 = 1100 cm2
and total surface area = curved surface area + 2 x base area
= 1100 + 2 x πr2 =1100+ 2 x 222 x 7 x 7
= 1100 + 308 = 1408 cm2

and height of metallic circular disc i.e., = 0.2 cm
∴ Volume of a circular disc = π x (Radius)2 x Height

Given, dimensions of the cuboidal
= 16 cm x 8 cm x 8 cm
∴ Volume of the cuboidal =16x8x8
= 1024 cm3
Also, given radius of one glass sphere = 2cm
∴ Volume of one glass sphere = (43)πr³
= (43) x (227) x (2)³
= (70421) = 33.523 cm³
Now, volume of 16 glass spheres = 16 x 33.523 = 536.37 cm3
∴ Required volume of water = Volume of cuboidal – Volume of 16 glass spheres
= 1024 – 536.37 = 487.6 cm3

Given, radius of tank, r1 = 40 cm
Let height of water level in tank in half an hour = h1
Also, given internal radius of cylindrical pipe, r1 = 1 cm
and speed of water = 80 cm/s /., in 1 water flow = 80 cm
∴In 30 (min) water flow = 80 x 60 x 30 = 144000 cm
According to the question,
Volume of water in cylindrical tank = Volume of water flow the circular pipe in half an hour
⇒ πr1²h1 = πr2²h2
⇒ 40 x 40 x h1 = 1 x 1 x 14400
∴ h1 = (14400040×40) = 90 cm
Hence, the level of water in cylindrical tank rises 90 cm in half an hour.

Volume of water flows in the canal in one hour = width of the canal x depth of the canal x speed of the canal water
= 3 x 1.2 x 20 x 1000 m³ = 72000 m³
In 20 minutes the volume of water
= 72000×2060 m³ = 24000 m³

i. e., 0.08 m standing water is required
= (25) m²
= 300000 m²= 30 hectares.

(i) When it is revolved along BC i.e., 4 cm side, then
Radius of the base of the cone (r1) = 3 cm
and height (h1) = 4 cm and slant height l = 5 cm
∴ Volume = (25) πr2h = (13) π x 3 x 3 x 4 cm³
= 12π cm³
and surface area = πrl = π x 3 x 5 cm2 = 157π cm2
(ii) When it is revolved along 3 cm side, then
r = 4 cm and h = 3 cm and l = 5 cm
∴ Volume = (13) πr2h =-(13) π x 4 x 4 x 3 cm3
and curved surface area = πrl
= π x 4 x 5 = 20n cm²
∴ Difference of their volumes = I6π- 12π = 4πcm³

(i) Whenever we placed a solid right circular cone in a right circular cylinder with full of water, then volume of a solid right circular cone is equal to the volume of water failed from the cylinder.
(ii) Total volume of water in a cylinder is equal to the volume of the cylinder.
(iii) Volume of water left in the cylinder = Volume of the right circular cylinder – Volume of a right circular cone.
Now, given that
Height of a right circular cone = 120 cm
Radius of a right circular cone = 60 cm
∴Volume of a right circular cone = (13)πr² x h
= (13) x (227) x 60 x 60 x 120
=(227) x 20 x 60 x 120
= 144000π cm³
∴Volume of a right circular cone = Volume of water failed from the cylinder = 1440007c cm3 [from point (i)]
Given that, height of a right circular cylinder = 180 cm
and radius of a right circular cylinder = Radius of a right circular cone = 60 cm
∴Volume of a right circular cylinder = πr² x h
= π x 60 x 60 x 180 = 64800071 cm3 So, volume of a right circular cylinder = Total volume of water in a cylinder = 64800071 cm3 [from point (ii)]
From point (iii),
Volume of water left in the cylinder = Total volume of water in a cylinder – Volume of water failed from the cylinder when solid cone is placed in it
= 648000π- 144000π
= 504000π = 504000 x (227) = 1584000 cm³ 1584000
= (1584000(10)6) m³ = 1.584 m³
Hence, the required volume of water left in the cylinder is 1.584 m³.

Also, given height of the conical heap (h) = 24 cm
Let radius of heap be r cm
Then, volume of the sand in the heap = (13) πr²h

Given, pencils are cylindrical in shape.
Length of one pencil = 25 cm
and circumference of base = 1.5 cm
Now, cost of colouring 1 dm2 curved surface of the pencils manufactured in one day = ₹0.05
∴ Cost of colouring 45000 dm2 curved surface = ₹2250
