Diameter of the cylindrical part = 4 m
Radius of the cylindrical part = 2 m
Slant height (l) of conical part = 2.8 m
Area of canvas used = CSA of conical part + CSA of cylindrical part

Cost of 1 m2 canvas = Rs 500
Cost of 44 m2 canvas = 44 × 500 = 22000
Therefore, it will cost Rs 22000 for making such a tent.

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.)

From the figure, it can be observed that
Height (h1) of each conical part = 2 cm
Height (h2) of cylindrical part = 12 – 2 × Height of conical part
= 12 – 2 ×2 = 8 cm
Volume of air present in the model = Volume of cylinder + 2 × Volume of cones

Length of each hemispherical part = Radius of hemispherical part = 1.4 cm
Length (h) of cylindrical part = 5 – 2 × Length of hemispherical part
= 5 – 2 × 1.4 = 2.2 cm
Volume of one gulab jamun = Vol. of cylindrical part + 2 × Vol. of hemispherical part

Volume of 45 gulab jamuns =
= 1,127.25 cm3
Volume of sugar syrup = 30% of volume

Height (h1) of larger cylinder = 220 cm
Radius (r1) of larger cylinder = = 12 cm
Height (h2) of smaller cylinder = 60 cm
Radius (r2) of smaller cylinder = 8 cm

Mass of 1iron = 8 g
Mass of 111532.8iron = 111532.8 × 8 = 892262.4 g = 892.262 kg

Radius (r3) of 3rd sphere = 10 cm
Let the radius of the resulting sphere be r.
The object formed by recasting these spheres will be same in volume as the sum of the volumes of these spheres.
Volume of 3 spheres = Volume of resulting sphere

Therefore, the radius of the sphere so formed will be 12 cm.

The shape of the well will be cylindrical.
Depth (h) of well = 20 m
Radius (r) of circular end of well =
Area of platform = Length × Breadth = 22 × 14 m2
Let height of the platform = H
Volume of soil dug from the well will be equal to the volume of soil scattered on the platform.
Volume of soil from well = Volume of soil used to make such platform

Therefore, the height of such platform will be 2.5 m.

Q4 : 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 the shape of a circular ring of width 4 m to form an embankment. Find the height of the embankment.
The shape of the well will be cylindrical.
Depth (h1) of well = 14 m
Radius (r1) of the circular end of well =
Width of embankment = 4 m
From the figure, it can be observed that our embankment will be in a cylindrical shape having outer radius (r2) as and inner radius (r1) as.
Let the height of embankment be h2.
Volume of soil dug from well = Volume of earth used to form embankment

Therefore, the height of the embankment will be 1.125 m.

Consider an area of cross-section of canal as ABCD.
Area of cross-section = 6 × 1.5 = 9 m2
Speed of water = 10 km/h =
Volume of water that flows in 1 minute from canal = =1500 m3
Volume of water that flows in 30 minutes from canal = 30 × 1500 = 45000 m3

Let the irrigated area be A. Volume of water irrigating the required area will be equal to the volume of water that flowed in 30 minutes from the canal.
Vol. of water flowing in 30 minutes from canal = Vol. of water irrigating the reqd. area

A = 562500 m2
Therefore, area irrigated in 30 minutes is 562500 m2.

Area of cross-section =
Speed of water = 3 km/h =
Volume of water that flows in 1 minute from pipe = 50 ×= 0.5π m3

Volume of water that flows in t minutes from pipe = t × 0.5π m3
Radius (r2) of circular end of cylindrical tank = m
Depth (h2) of cylindrical tank = 2 m
Let the tank be filled completely in t minutes.
Volume of water filled in tank in t minutes is equal to the volume of water flowed in t minutes from the pipe.
Volume of water that flows in t minutes from pipe = Volume of water in tank
t × 0.5π = π ×(r2)2 ×h2
t × 0.5 = 52 ×2
t = 100
Therefore, the cylindrical tank will be filled in 100 minutes.

Perimeter of upper circular end of frustum = 18 cm
2πr1 =18

Perimeter of lower end of frustum = 6 cm
2πr2 = 6

Slant height (l) of frustum = 4 cm
CSA of frustum = π (r1 + r2) l

Therefore, the curved surface area of the frustum is 48 cm2.

Radius (r2) of lower end of container = 8 cm
Height (h) of container = 16 cm
Slant height (l) of frustum =

Capacity of container = Volume of frustum

Cost of 1 litre milk = Rs 20
Cost of 10.45 litre milk = 10.45 × 20
= Rs 209
Area of metal sheet used to make the container

= π (20 + 8) 20 + π (8)2
= 560 π + 64 π = 624 π cm2
Cost of 100 cm2 metal sheet = Rs 8

Therefore, the cost of the milk which can completely fill the container is
Rs 209 and the cost of metal sheet used to make the container is Rs 156.75.

It can be observed that 1 round of wire will cover 3 mm height of cylinder.

Length of wire required in 1 round = Circumference of base of cylinder
= 2πr = 2π × 5 = 10π
Length of wire in 40 rounds = 40 × 10π

= 1257.14 cm = 12.57 m
Volume of wire = Area of cross-section of wire × Length of wire
= π(0.15)2 × 1257.14
= 88.898 cm3
Mass = Volume × Density
= 88.898 × 8.88
= 789.41 gm

Each brick absorbs one-seventeenth of its own volume of water. How many bricks can be put in without overflowing the water, each brick being 22.5 cm x 7.5 cm x 6.5 cm?
Volume of cistern = 150 × 120 × 110
= 1980000 cm3
Volume to be filled in cistern = 1980000 – 129600
= 1850400 cm3
Let n numbers of porous bricks were placed in the cistern.
Volume of n bricks = n × 22.5 × 7.5 × 6.5
= 1096.875n
As each brick absorbs one-seventeenth of its volume, therefore, volume absorbed by these bricks

n = 1792.41
Therefore, 1792 bricks were placed in the cistern

Q4 : 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.
Area of the valley = 97280 km2
If there was a rainfall of 10 cm in the valley then amount of rainfall in the valley = area of the valley × 10 cm
Amount of rainfall in the valley = 97280 km2 × 10 cm
Amount of rainfall in one day
=9.728×10914=0.694×109=6.94×108m3
Length of each river, l = 1072 km = 1072 × 1000 m = 1072000 m
Breadth of each river, b = 75 m
Depth of each river, h = 3 m
Volume of each river = l × b × h
= 1072000 × 75 × 3 m3
= 2.412 × 108 m3
Volume of three such rivers = 3 × Volume of each river
= 3 × 2.412 × 108 m3
= 7.236 × 108 m3
Thus, the total rainfall is approximately same as the volume of the three rivers.
