**Chapter 16: Surface Area And Volume Exercise – 16.1**

**Question: 1**

How many balls, each of radiuses 1 cm can be made from a solid sphere of lead of radius 8 cm?

**Solution:**

Given that a solid sphere of radius = 8 cm

With this sphere, we have to make spherical balls = 1 cm

Since we don’t know number of balls let us assume that number of balls be n

We know that,

Volume of the sphere = 4/3 πr^{3}

The volume of the solid sphere equal to sum of the n spherical balls.

Hence 512 numbers of balls can be made of radius 1 cm of a solid sphere of radius 8 cm.

**Question: 2**

How many spherical bullets each of 5 cm in diameter can be cast from a rectangular block of metal 11dm *1 m*5 dm?

**Solution:**

Given that a metallic block which is rectangular of dimension 11dm*1m*5dm

Given that the diameter of each bullet is 5 cm

Volume of the sphere = 4/3 πr^{3}

Dimensions of the rectangular block = 11dm*1m*5 dm

Since we know that 1 dm = 10^{-1}m

11*10^{-1}*1*5*10^{-1} = 55*10^{-2} – ……..(i)

Diameter of the bullet = 5 cm

Radius of the bullet = 5/2 = 2.5 cm

So the volume of the rectangular block equals to the sum of the volumes of the n spherical bullets

Let the number of bullets be n

Numbers of bullets formed were 8400.

**Question: 3**

A spherical ball of radius 3 cm is melted and recast into three spherical balls. The radii of the two balls are 2 cm and 1.5 cm respectively. Determine the diameter of the third ball?

**Solution:**

According to the question Radius of the spherical ball = 3 cm

We know that the volume of the sphere = 4/3 πr^{3}

So it’s volume (v) = 4/3 πr^{3}

Given,

That the ball is melted and recast into 3 spherical balls.

Volume (V_{1}) of first ball = 4/3 π 1.5^{3}

Volume (V_{2}) of second ball = 4/3 π2^{3}

Radii of the third ball be = r cm

Volume of third ball (V_{3}) = 4/3 πr^{3}

Volume of the spherical ball is equal to the volume of the 3 small spherical balls.

Now,

Cancelling out the common part from both sides of the equation we get,

(3)^{3} = (2)^{3} + (1.5)^{3 }+ r^{3}

r^{3 }= 3^{3}– 2^{3}– 1.5^{3} cm^{3}

r^{3 }= 15.6 cm^{3}

r = (15.6)^{1/3} cm

r = 2.5 cm

We know diameter = 2* radius

= 2*2.5 cm

= 5.0 cm.

The diameter of the third ball is 5.0 cm

**Question: 4**

2.2 dm^{3} of brass is to be drawn into a cylindrical wire of 0.25 cm

diameter Radius of the wire (r) = d/2

= 0.25/2 = 0.125*10^{-2 }cm

Now, 1 cm = 0.01 m

So, 0.1cm = 0.001 m

Let the length of the wire be (h)

Volume of the cylinder = πr^{2}h

Volume of brass of 2.2 dm^{3} is equal to volume of cylindrical wire.

H = 448 m

The length of the cylindrical wire is 448 m

**Question: 5**

What length of a solid cylinder 2 cm in diameter be taken to recast into a hollow cylinder of length 16 cm, external diameter 20 cm and thickness 2.5 mm?

**Solution:**

According to the question

Diameter of the solid cylinder = 2 cm

The solid cylinder is recast into a hollow cylinder of length 16 cm, external diameter of 20 cm and thickness of 2.5 cm

Volume of the cylinder = πr^{2}h

Radius of the cylinder = 1 cm

So, volume of the solid cylinder = π1^{2}h

Let the length of the solid cylinder be I

Volume of the hollow cylinder = πh(R^{2}– r^{2}).

Thickness of the cylinder = (R – r)

0.25 = 10 – r

Internal radius of the cylinder is 9.75 cm

Volume of the hollow cylinder = π × 16 (100 – 95.0625)

Hence, the volume of the solid cylinder is equal to the volume of the hollow cylinder

Equation I = equation ii

π1^{2}h = π × 16(100 – 95.06)

h = 79.04 cm

Length of the solid cylinder is 79.04 cm.

**Question: 6**

A cylindrical vessel having the diameter equal to its height is full of water which is poured into two identical cylindrical vessels with diameter 42 cm and height 21 cm which are filled completely. Find the diameter of the cylindrical vessel?

**Solution:**

Given,

The diameter is equal to the height of a cylinder = πr^{2}h

So, volume = πr^{2}2r (h = 2r) ….. (i)

= 2πr^{2}

Volume of each vessel = πr^{2}h

Diameter = 42 cm

Height = 21 cm

Diameter = 2r

2r = 42 cm

r = 21 cm

Volume of vessel = π 21^{2} × 21 ….. (ii)

Since the volumes of equation i and ii are equal

So equating both the equations

r^{3} = (21)^{3}

r = 21 cm

d = 42 cm

The diameter of the cylindrical vessel is 42 cm.

**Question: 7**

50 circular plates each of diameter 14 cm and thickness 0.5 cm are placed one above the other to form right circular cylinder. Find its total surface area?

**Solution:**

Given that the 50 circular plates each with diameter 14 cm

Radius of circular plates = 7cm

Thickness of plates = 0.5 cm

Since these plates are one above the other so total thickness of plates = 0.5 *100 = 25 cm

Total surface area of a cylinder = 2πr × h + 2πr^{2}

2πr (h + r)

Total surface area = 1408 cm^{2}

The total surface area of the cylinder is 1408 cm^{2}

**Question: 8**

25 circular plates each of radius 10.5 cm and thickness 1.6 cm are placed one above the other to form a solid circular cylinder. Find the curved surface area and volume of the cylinder so formed.

**Solution:**

Given that 250 circular plates each with radius 10.5 cm

Thickness is 1.6 cm.

Since plates are placed one above the other so its height becomes = 1.6*25 = 40 cm

Volume of the cylinder = πr^{2}h

= π × 10.5^{2 }× 40 = 13860 cm^{3}

Curved surface area of a cylinder = 2πrh

2π × 10.5 × 40 = 2640 cm^{2}

Volume of the sphere = 4/3 πr^{3}

= 4/3 π × 4.5^{3}

= 381.703 cm^{3} …… (i)

Diameter of the cylindrical wire = 2 mm = 2/10 cm = 0.2 cm

The radius of the cylindrical wire be = 0 2/2 cm = 0.1 cm

Let the height of the cylindrical wire be = h cm

Volume of the cylindrical wire = π × r^{2} × h

= π × 0.1^{2 }× h ….. (ii)

Since the metallic sphere is melted and recast into a long cylindrical wire. So comparing and equating both the above-marked equations

We get,

381.703 = π × 0.1^{2} × h ….. (iii)

H = 12150 cm

The required length of the wire after recasting of the metallic sphere is 12150 cm.

A vessel in the shape of a cuboids’ contains some water. If 3 identical spheres are immersed in the water, the level of water is increased by 2 cm. If the area of the base of the cuboids is 160 cm^{2} and its height is 12 cm. determine the radius of any of the spheres?

**Solution:**

Given,

The area of the cuboids’= 160 cm^{2}

Level of water in the vessel increased = 2 cm

Volume of the vessel = 160 × 2 cm^{2} = 320 cm^{2 }……… (i)

Volume of each sphere = 4/3 π r^{3}

Total volume of 3 spheres = 3 × 4/3 π r^{3} …… (ii)

Now equating equation (i) and (ii) we get

320 = 3 × 4/3 π r^{3}

R = 2.94 cm

The radius of the sphere so obtained is 2.94 cm.

**Question: 33**

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

**Solution:**

Given,

Water is flowing at a speed of = 10 km/hr

In 20 minutes length of the flowing standing water = 10 × 30/60 = 5 km = 5000 m

Width of the canal = 1.5 m

Depth of the canal = 6m

Volume of water in 20 minutes = 5000 × width × depth = 45000 m^{3}

Irrigated area in 20 minutes if 5 cm of standing water is desired = 45000 / 0.08 m^{2} = 562500 m^{2}

Irrigated area in 30 minutes is 562500 m^{2}

**Question: 34**

A tent of height 77 dm is in the form of aright angled circular cylinder of diameter 36 m and height 44 dm surmounted by a right circular cone. Find the cost of canvas at the rate of Rs.3.5 per m^{2}.

**Solution:**

Given The height of the tent = 77 dm

Height of the cone = 44 dm

Height of the tent without the cone = (77 – 44) dm = 33 dm = 3.3 m

Diameter of the cylinder = 36 m

Radius of the cylinder = 36/2 m = 18 m

Let us assume the slant height of the cone be (I)

L^{2} = r^{2} + h^{2}

L^{2} = (18)^{2} + (3.3)^{2}

I = 18.3 m

The slant height of the cone is 18.3 m.

Curved surface area of the cylinder = 2πrh

= 2 × π ×18 ×4.4 m^{2 }….. (i)

Curved surface area of the cone = πrh

= π × 18 × 18.3 m^{2} ……(ii)

Now adding equation (i) and (ii) we will get the value of the total surface area

Total surface area = 1532.46 m^{2}

Cost of canvas = 1532.46 m^{2} × Rs 3.5 = Rs 5363.61

= 4/3 π 7^{3}

= 1436.75 cm^{3}

Volume of the sphere is 1436.75 cm^{3}

**Question: 36**

A right angled triangle whose sides are 3 cm, 4 cm and 5 cm is revolved about the sides containing the right angle in two ways. Find the difference in volumes of the two cones so formed. Also find the curved surfaces?

**Solution:**

Given:

Radius of the cone = 4 cm

Height of the cone = 3 cm

Slant height of the cone = 5 cm

Volume of the cone = 1/3 π r^{2} × h

= 1/3 × π 4^{2 }× 3

= 16 π cm^{3}

Radius of the second cone = 3 cm

Height of the cone = 4 cm

Slant height of the cone = 5 cm

Volume of the cone = 1/3 π r^{2} × h

= 1/3 π 3^{2} × 4

= 12 π cm^{3}

Difference of the volumes of two cone = (16 – 12) π cm^{3}

= 4 π cm^{3}

Curved surface area of the first cone = πr_{1}l_{1}

= π × 4 × 5

= 20 π cm^{3}

Curved surface area of the second cone = πr_{2}l_{2}

=π*3*5 cm^{2}

= 15 π cm^{2}

**Question: 38**

The difference between the outer and inner curved surface areas of a hollow right circular cylinder 14 cm long is 88 cm^{2}. If the volume of metal used in making cylinder is 176 cm^{3}. Find the outer and inner diameters of the cylinder?

**Solution:**

Given,

Height of the cylinder = 14 cm

Let the inner and outer radii of the hollow sphere be (r) and (R) respectively.

The difference between inner and outer curved surface area is 88 cm^{2}

Curved surface area of the hollow sphere = 2π(R – r) h

88 = 2π(R – r) h

88 = 2π(R – r)× 14

R – r = 1 ….. (i)

Volume of the hollow cylinder = π × R^{2} – r^{2} × h

176 = π × R^{2} – r^{2} × h

176 = π × R^{2} – r^{2} × 15

From equation (i) substituting the values of equation. We get,

R + r = 4 ….. .. (ii)

Now solving both the equations we get,

2R = 5

R = 2.5 cm & r = 1.5 cm

Inner radius of the hollow cylinder = 1.5 cm

Inner diameter of the hollow cylinder = 2 × 1.5 cm = 3 cm

Outer radius of the hollow cylinder = 2.5 cm

Outer diameter of the hollow cylinder = 5 cm

**Question: 39**

The internal and external diameters of a hollow hemispherical vessel are 21 cm and 25.2 cm .The cost of painting 1 cm^{2} of the surface is 10 paisa. Find the total cost to paint the vessel all over.

**Solution:**

Given,

Internal diameter of the hollow hemisphere = 21 cm

Internal radius of the hollow hemisphere = 21/2 = 10.5 cm

External diameter of the hollow hemisphere = 25.2 cm

External radius of the hollow hemisphere = 25.2/2 = 12.6 cm

Total area of the hollow hemisphere = 2πR^{2} + 2πr^{2} + π(R^{2} – r^{2})

= 2 π 12.6^{2} + 2 π 10.5^{2} + π (12.6^{2} – 10.5^{2})

= 997.51+ 692.72 + 152.39 cm^{2}

= 1843.38 cm^{2}

According to the question,

The cost of painting of 1 cm^{2} of the surface is = 10 p = Rs 0.01

Then the total cost of painting = 1848.38 × 0.10

= Rs 184.338

The total cost of painting all over the vessel is Rs.184.338.

**Question: 40**

The difference between outer and inner curved surface area of a hollow right circular cylinder is 14cm long is 88 cm^{2}. If the volume of metal used in making cylinder is 176 cm^{3}. Find the outer and inner diameters of the cylinder?

**Solution:**

Given,

Height of the hollow cylinder = 14 cm

Let the internal and external diameters of the hollow cylinder be r and R respectively.

Given that the difference between inner and outer curved surface = 88 cm^{3}

Curved surface area of a hollow cylinder = 2 π (R – r) h

88 = 2π (R – r) × h

88 = 2 × 22/7 (R – r) × 14

R – r = 1 ……. (i)

Volume of the hollow cylinder = π (R^{2} – r^{2}) × h

Volume of the hollow cylinder = 176 cm^{3}

π(R^{2 }– r^{2}) h = 176

R^{2 }– r^{2} = 4

R + r = 4 …… (ii)

Now, solving eq I and ii we get,

R – r = 1

R + r = 4

2R = 5

R =2.5 cm

r = 1.5 cm

The internal and external radii of the hollow cylinder are 1.5 cm and 2.5 cm respectively.
