**Practice Set 7.1 Page 145**

**1. Find the volume of a cone if the radius of its base is 1.5 cm and its perpendicular height is 5 cm.**

**Solution:**

Given radius of cone ,r = 1.5cm

Height of cone ,h = 5cm

Volume of the cone , V = (1/3)r^{2}h

V = (1/3)×(22/7) ×1.52×5

V = 11.785 cm^{3}

= 11.79 cm^{3}

Hence the volume of the cone is 11.79 cm^{3}.

**2. Find the volume of a sphere of diameter 6 cm.**

**Solution:**

Given diameter of sphere , d = 6cm

Radius r = d/2 = 3

Volume of a sphere, V = (4/3)r^{3}

V = (4/3)×(22/7)×3^{3}

V = 113.14cm^{3}

Hence the volume of the sphere is 113.14cm^{3}.

**3. Find the total surface area of a cylinder if the radius of its base is 5 cm and height is 40 cm.**

**Solution:**

Given radius of cylinder , r = 5cm

Height of cylinder, h = 40cm

Total surface area of cylinder = 2r(r+h)

= 2×(22/7)×5×(5+40)

= 2×(22/7)×5×45

= 1414.28cm^{2}

Hence Total surface area of cylinder is 1414.28cm^{2}.

**4. Find the surface area of a sphere of radius 7 cm.**

**Solution:**

Given radius of sphere , r = 7cm

Surface area, A = 4r^{2}

A = 4×(22/7)×7^{2}

= 616 cm^{2}

Hence surface area of sphere is 616cm^{2}.

**5. The dimensions of a cuboid are 44 cm, 21 cm, 12 cm. It is melted and a cone of height 24 cm is made. Find the radius of its base.**

**Solution:**

Given length of cuboid , *l* = 44 cm

Breadth of cuboid ,b = 21 cm

Height of cuboid , h = 12cm

Volume of the cuboid , V = *l*bh

V = 44×21×12 = 11088cm^{3}

Given Height of cone ,h = 24cm

Since cuboid is melted and a cone is made, the volume will be same.

Volume of cone = Volume of cuboid.

(1/3)r^{2}h = 11088

(1/3)×(22/7)×r^{2}×24 = 11088

r^{2} = 11088/8×(22/7)

r^{2} = 441

Taking square root

r = 21

Hence radius of the cone is 21 cm.

**6. Observe the measures of pots in figure 7.8 and 7.9. How many jugs of water can the cylindrical pot hold ?**

**Solution:**

Given radius of jug , r = 3.5 cm

Height of jug , h = 10 cm

Volume of conical jug, V = (1/3)r^{2}h

= (1/3)××3.5^{2}×10 = (122.5/3)×

Given Radius of pot ,R = 7cm

Height of pot, H = 10 cm

Volume of pot = R^{2}H

= ×7^{2}×10 = 490

Number of jugs of water the cylindrical pot can hold = Volume of pot/Volume of conical jug

= 490 ÷ (122.5/3)×

= 490×(3/122.5)

= 12

Hence the pot can hold 12 jugs of water.

**7. A cylinder and a cone have equal bases. The height of the cylinder is 3 cm and the area of its base is 100 cm ^{2} .The cone is placed upon the cylinder. Volume of the solid figure so formed is 500 cm^{3} . Find the total height of the figure.**

**Solution:**

Given height of cylinder , h = 3cm

Base area of cylinder , r^{2} = 100cm^{2} …………..(i)

Volume of solid = 500cm^{3}

Given cylinder and cone have equal bases. the radii will be equal.

Radius of cone = radius of cylinder = r

Let height of cone be H

Volume of solid = volume of cylinder + volume of cone

500 = r^{2}h+(1/3) r^{2}H

500 = 100×3+(1/3)×100×H [∵r^{2} = 100, base area of cylinder and cone are equal]

500 = 300+(100/3)H

(100/3)H = 200

H = 3×200/100 = 6

Hence height of cone is 6cm.

Total height of figure = h+H

= 3+6 = 9cm

Hence the total height of the figure is 9cm.

**8. In figure 7.11, a toy made from a hemisphere, a cylinder and a cone is shown. Find the total area of the toy.**

**Solution:**

Given: For the conical Part,

height ,h = 4 cm, radius , r = 3 cm

For the cylindrical part,

height ,H = 40 cm, radius ,r = 3 cm

For the hemispherical part,

radius ,r = 3 cm

Slant height of cone (*l*) = √(h^{2}+r^{2})

= √(4^{2}+3^{2}) = √(16+9)

= √25 = 5 cm

Curved surface area of hemisphere = 2πr^{2}

= 2×π×3^{2}

= 18π cm^{2}

Curved surface area of cylinder = 2πrH

= 2×π×3×40

= 240π cm^{2}

Curved surface area of cone = πr*l*

= π×3×5

= 15π cm^{2}

Total area of the toy

= Curved surface area of cone + Curved surface area of cylinder + Curved surface area of hemisphere

= 15π + 240π + 18π

= 273 π cm^{2}

Hence total area of the toy is 273π cm^{2}.

**9. In the figure 7.12, a cylindrical wrapper of flat tablets is shown. The radius of a tablet is 7 mm and its thickness is 5 mm. How many such tablets are wrapped in the wrapper ?**

**Solution:**

Given radius of tablet, r = 7mm

Thickness of tablet , h = 5mm

Volume of tablet =

Radius of cylindrical wrapper , R = 14/2 = 7mm

Height of cylindrical wrapper , H = 10cm = 10×0 = 100mm

Let n be the number of tablets that can be wrapped.

n = volume of cylindrical wrapper/volume of tablet

= R^{2}H/r^{2}h

=× 7^{2}×100/×7^{2}×5

= 20

Hence number of tablets that can be wrapped in wrapper is 20.

**10. Figure 7.13 shows a toy. Its lower part is a hemisphere and the upper part is a cone. Find the volume and the surface area of the toy from the measures shown in the figure.(=3.14)**

**Solution:**

Given radius of cone ,r = 3 cm

Height of cone ,h = 4 cm

Radius of hemisphere, r = 3cm

Slant height of cone , *l* = √(h^{2}+r^{2})

*l* = √(4^{2}+3^{2}) = √(16+9) = √25 = 5

Curved surface area of cone = r*l*

= ×3×5 = 15cm^{2}

Curved surface area of hemisphere = (2/3)r^{3}

= (2/3)×3^{3} = 18cm^{2}

Surface area of toy = Curved surface area of cone+ Curved surface area of hemisphere

= 15+18 = 33 = 33×3.14 = 103.62cm^{2}

Volume of cone = (1/3)r^{2}h

= (1/3)×3^{2}×4 = 12cm^{3}

Volume of hemisphere = (2/3)r^{3}

= (2/3)×3^{3} = 18cm^{3}

Volume of toy = Volume of cone+ Volume of hemisphere

= 12+18 = 30 = 30×3.14 = 94.2cm^{3}

Hence the surface area and volume of the toy are 103.62cm^{2} and 94.2cm^{3} respectively.

**11. Find the surface area and the volume of a beach ball shown in the figure.**

**Solution:**

Given diameter of ball , d = 42 cm

radius of ball , r = 42/2 = 21cm

Surface area of sphere = 4r^{2}

= 4××21^{2} = 4×3.14×441 = 5538.96 cm^{2}

Volume of sphere = (4/3)r^{3}

= (4/3)××21^{3} = (4/3)×3.14×9261 = 38772.72 cm^{3}

Hence the surface area and volume of ball are 5538.96 cm^{2} and 38772.72 cm^{3} respectively.

**12. As shown in the figure, a cylindrical glass contains water. A metal sphere of diameter 2 cm is immersed in it. Find the volume of the water. **

**Solution:**

Given diameter of cylindrical glass , d = 14cm

Radius , R = 14/2 = 7cm

Height of glass in cylindrical glass, H = 30cm

Given diameter of metal sphere = 2cm

radius of metal sphere , r = 2/2 = 1cm

Volume of sphere = (4/3)r^{3}

= (4/3)××1^{3}

= (4/3)

= (4/3)×(22/7)

= 4.19cm^{3}

Volume of water with sphere in it = R^{2}H

= ×7^{2}×30

= 1470

= 4620cm^{3}

Volume of water in glass = Volume of water with sphere in it – Volume of sphere

= 4620-4.19 = 4615.81cm^{3}

Hence the volume of water in glass is 4615.81cm^{3}.

**Practice Set 7.2 Page 148**

**1. The radii of two circular ends of frustum shape bucket are 14 cm and 7 cm. Height of the bucket is 30 cm. How many liters of water it can hold ?** **(1 litre = 1000 cm ^{3} )**

**Solution:**

Given height of bucket , h = 30cm

r_{1} = 14cm

r_{2}= 7cm

Volume of a frustum = (1/3)h(r_{1}^{2}+r_{2}^{2}+r_{1}×r_{2})

Volume of bucket = (1/3)×30(14^{2}+7^{2}+14×7)

= 10×(196+49+98)

= 3430

= 10780cm^{3}

= 10.78 litres [∵1 litre = 1000 cm^{3} ]

Hence the bucket can hold 10.78 litres of water.

**2. The radii of ends of a frustum are 14 cm and 6 cm respectively and its height is 6 cm. Find its**

**i) curved surface area ii) total surface area. iii ) volume ( = 3.14)**

**Solution:**

Given r_{1} = 14cm

r_{2}= 6cm

Height , h = 6cm

Slant height of frustum *l* = √[h^{2}+(r_{1}-r_{2})^{2}]

= √[6^{2}+(14-6)^{2}]

= √[36+(8)^{2}]

= √[36+64]

= √100 = 10

(i) Curved surface area of frustum = *l*(r_{1}+r_{2})

= ×10(14+6)

= ×10×20

= 3.14 ×200

= 628cm^{2}

Hence curved surface area of frustum is 628cm^{2}.

(ii) Total surface area of frustum = *l* (r_{1}+ r_{2})+r_{1}^{2}+r_{2}^{2}

= *×*10(14+ 6)+×14^{2}+×6^{2}

= *×*10×20+×196+×36

= 200+196+36

= 432

= 432×3.14

= 1356.48cm^{2}

Hence Total surface area of frustum is 1356.48cm^{2}.

(iii)Volume of frustum = (1/3)h(r_{1}^{2}+r_{2}^{2}+r_{1}×r_{2})

= (1/3)×6(14^{2}+6^{2}+14×6)

= 2×(196+36+84)

= 2×3.14×316

= 1984.48cm^{3}

Hence volume of frustum is 1984.48cm^{3}

**3. The circumferences of circular faces of a frustum are 132 cm and 88 cm and its height is 24 cm. To find the curved surface area of the frustum complete the following activity. ( = 22/7 ).**

r_{1} = 132/2 = ____

Circumference_{2} = 2r_{2} = 88

r_{2} = 88/2 = ____

Slant height of frustum *l* = √[h^{2}+(r_{1}-r_{2})^{2}]

= √[__^{2}+(___)^{2}]

= ____cm

Curved surface area of frustum = (r_{1}+r_{2})*l*

= ×___×___

= ___sq.cm.

**Solution:**

Circumference_{1} = 2r_{1} = 132

r_{1} = 132/2 = 21cm [=22/7]

Circumference_{2} = 2r_{2} = 88

r_{2} = 88/2 = 14cm

Slant height of frustum *l* = √[h^{2}+(r_{1}-r_{2})^{2}]

= √[24^{2}+(21-14)^{2}] [given h =24]

= √[576+(7)^{2}]

= √[576+49]

= √625

= 25cm

Curved surface area of frustum = (r_{1}+r_{2})*l*

= ×(21+14)×25

= ×(35)×25

= 2750sq.cm

**Solution:**

Given radius of circle , r = 10cm

Measure of an arc of the circle , = 54˚

= 3.14

Area of sector , A = (/360)r^{2}

A = (54/360)×3.14×10^{2}

= (9/60)×3.14×100

= 47.1cm^{2}

Hence area of the sector is 47.1cm^{2}

**2. Measure of an arc of a circle is 80˚ and its radius is 18 cm. Find the length of the arc. ( = 3.14)**

**Solution:**

Given measure of arc, = 80˚

Radius , r = 18cm

= 3.14

Length of arc , *l* = (/360)2r

*l *= (80/360)×2×3.14×18

= 25.12cm

Hence the length of the arc is 25.12cm.

**3. Radius of a sector of a circle is 3.5 cm and length of its arc is 2.2 cm. Find the area of the sector.**

**Solution:**

Given radius of sector of a circle , r = 3.5cm

Length of the arc, *l* = 2.2cm

Area of sector ,A = *l*r/2

A = 2.2×3.5/2 = 3.85cm^{2}

Hence the area of the sector is 3.85cm^{2}

**4. Radius of a circle is 10 cm. Area of a sector of the sector is 100 cm ^{2} . Find the area of its corresponding major sector. ( = 3.14 )**

**Solution:**

Given radius of circle , r = 10cm

Area of minor sector , A = 100cm^{2}

Area of circle = r^{2} = 3.14×10^{2} = 3.14×100 = 314cm^{2}

Area of major sector = Area of circle – Area of minor sector

= 314-100

= 214cm^{2}

Hence the area of the major sector is 214cm^{2}

**5. Area of a sector of a circle of radius 15 cm is 30 cm ^{2} . Find the length of the arc of the sector.**

**Solution:**

Given radius of circle , r = 15cm

Area of the sector of circle , A = 30cm^{2}

Area of sector = length of arc ×radius/2 = *l*r/2

Length of arc , *l *= 2A/r = 2×30/15 = 4cm

Hence the length of the arc is 4cm.

**6. In the figure 7.31, radius of the circle is 7 cm and m(arc MBN) = 60°, find **

**(1) Area of the circle .**

**(2) A(O – MBN) .**

**(3) A(O – MCN) .**

**Solution:**

Given radius of circle , r = 7cm

(1) Area of the circle , A = r^{2}

= (22/7)×7^{2}

=( 22/7)×49

= 154cm^{2}

Hence the area of the circle is 154cm^{2}

(2)Given m(arc MBN), = 60°

Area of sector = (/360)r^{2}

A(O-MBN) = (60/360)×(22/7)×7^{2}

= (1/6)×22×7

= 25.67cm^{2}

Hence area of sector O-MBN is 25.67cm^{2}

(3) Area of major sector = Area of circle -Area of minor sector

A(O-MCN) = 154-25.67

= 128.33cm^{2}

Hence area of sector O-MCN is 128.33cm^{2}

**7. In figure 7.32, radius of circle is 3.4 cm and perimeter of sector P-ABC is 12.8 cm. Find A(P-ABC).**

**Solution:**

Given radius , r = 3.4cm

Perimeter of sector P-ABC = PA+arc ABC +PC

12.8 = 3.4+ length of arc ABC +3.4

length of arc ABC , *l* = 12.8-3.4-3.4 = 6cm

Area of sector P-ABC = *l*r/2

= 6×3.4/2

= 3×3.4

= 10.2cm^{2}

Hence A(P-ABC) is 10.2cm^{2}.

**8. In figure 7.33 O is the centre of the sector. ROQ = MON = 60°. OR = 7 cm, and OM = 21 cm. Find the lengths of arc RXQ and arc MYN. ( = 22/7 )**

**Solution:**

Given ROQ = MON ,= 60°.

Radius OR, r = 7 cm

Radius OM, R = 21 cm

Length of arc RXQ = (/360)2r

= (60/360)×2×(22/7)×7

= (1/6)× 2×22

= 22/3

= 7.33cm

Hence Length of arc RXQ is 7.33cm.

Length of arc MYN = (/360)2R

= (60/360)×2×(22/7)×21

= (1/6)× 2×22×3

= 22cm

Hence Length of arc MYN is 22cm.

**9. In figure 7.34, if A(P-ABC) = 154 cm ^{2} radius of the circle is 14 cm, **

**find (1) APC. **

**(2) l(arc ABC) .**

**Solution:**

Given radius of circle , r = 14cm

Area ,A(P-ABC) = 154cm^{2}

(1) Let APC =

A(P-ABC) = (/360)r^{2}

154 = (/360)×(22/7)×14^{2}

= (154×360×7)/(22×14×14)

= 90˚

Hence APC is 90˚.

(2)length of arc, l(arc ABC) = (/360)2r

l(arc ABC) = (90/360)×2×(22/7)×14

= (1/4)×2×22×2

= 22cm.

Hence l(arc ABC) is 22cm.

**10. Radius of a sector of a circle is 7 cm. If measure of arc of the sector is – **

**(1) 30° **

**(2) 210° **

**(3 ) three right angles; **

**find the area of the sector in each case.**

**Solution:**

Given radius of sector, r = 7cm

(1)Measure of arc, = 30˚

Area of sector = (/360)r^{2}

= (30/360)×(22/7)×7^{2}

= (1/12)×(22/7)×49

= (1/12)×22×7

= 12.83cm^{2}

Hence the area of sector is 12.83cm^{2}

(2)Measure of arc, = 210˚

Area of sector = (/360)r^{2}

= (210/360)×(22/7)×7^{2}

= (7/12)×(22/7)×49

= (7/12)×22×7

= 89.83cm^{2}

Hence the area of sector is 89.83cm^{2}

(3)Measure of arc, = 3 right angles = 3×90 = 270˚

Area of sector = (/360)r^{2}

= (270/360)×(22/7)×7^{2}

= (3/4)×(22/7)×49

= (3/4)×22×7

= 115.5 cm^{2}

Hence the area of sector is 115.5 cm^{2}

**11. The area of a minor sector of a circle is 3.85 cm ^{2} and the measure of its central angle is 36°. Find the radius of the circle.**

**Solution:**

Given area of minor sector = 3.85cm^{2}

Measure of central angle, = 36˚

Area of sector = (/360)r^{2}

3.85 = (36/360)×(22/7)×r^{2}

r^{2} = (3.85×360×7)/(36×22)

r^{2} = (3.85×10×7)/22

r^{2 }= 12.25

r = 3.5cm

Hence the radius of the circle is 3.5cm

**12. In figure 7.35, PQRS is a rectangle. If PQ = 14 cm, QR = 21 cm, find the areas of the parts x, y and z .**

**Solution:**

Given PQ = 14cm

QR = 21cm

Q = = 90˚

Area of part x = (/360)r^{2}

Area of part x = (90/360)×(22/7)×14^{2}

= 11×14

= 154cm^{2}

Consider sector (R-BYA)

QR = QB+BR

BR = 21-14 = 7cm

AR = 7cm [radius of same circle]

Area of part y = (/360)r^{2}

Area of part y = (90/360)×(22/7)×7^{2}

= 11×7/2

= 38.5cm^{2}

Area of rectangle PQRS = length ×breadth

= QR×PQ

= 21×14

= 294cm^{2}

Area of part z = Area of rectangle PQRS – [Area of part x+ Area of part y]

Area of part z = 294-(154+38.5)

= 294-192.5

= 101.5cm^{2}

Hence area of part x is 154cm^{2} , area of part y is 38.5cm^{2} and area of part z is 101.5cm^{2}

**13. LMN is an equilateral triangle. LM = 14 cm. As shown in figure, three sectors are drawn with vertices as centres and radius7 cm. Find,**

**(1) A ( LMN) **

**(2) Area of any one of the sectors.**

** (3) Total area of all the three sectors. **

**(4) Area of the shaded region.**

**Solution:**

(1) Given LMN is an equilateral triangle .

LM = 14 cm

Area of LMN = (√3/4)a^{2}

Here a represents the side of equilateral triangle.

a = 14

Area of LMN = (√3/4)×14^{2}

= 49√3

= 84.87cm^{2}

Hence area of LMN is 84.87cm^{2}

(2) Since LMN is equilateral, L = M = N = 60˚

= 60˚

Given r = 7

Area of sector = (/360)r^{2}

Area of sector = (60/360)×22/7×7^{2}

= 11×7/3

= 25.67cm^{2}

Hence area of one sector = 25.67cm^{2}

(3)Total area of 3 sectors = 3×area of one sector

= 3×25.67

= 77.01cm^{2}

Hence total area of 3 sectors is 77.01cm^{2}.

(4)Area of shaded region = Area of LMN – Area of 3 sectors

= 84.87 – 77.01

= 7.86cm^{2}

Hence area of shaded region is 7.86cm^{2}.

**1. In figure 7.43, A is the centre of the circle. ABC = 45° and AC = 7√2 cm. Find the area of segment BXC.**

**Solution:**

Given radius of circle, r = 7√2cm

AB = AC [radii of same circle]

ABC = ACB = 45° [isosceles triangle theorem]

InABC,

A = = 90˚ [Angle sum property of triangle]

Area of segment BXC = r^{2}[(/360) – (sin/2)]

= (7√2)^{2}[3.14×90/360 – (sin90˚)/2]

= 98×[(3.14/4)-(1/2)]

= 98×[0.785-0.5]

= 27.93cm^{2}

Hence area of segment BXC is 27.93cm^{2}.

**2. In the figure 7.44, O is the centre of the circle. m(arc PQR) = 60° OP = 10 cm. Find the area of the shaded region. ( = 3.14, √3 = 1.73)**

**Solution:**

Given radius OP , r = 10cm

m(arc PQR) , = 60°

Area of segment PQR = r^{2}[(/360) – (sin/2)]

= 10^{2}[3.14×(60/360)- sin60˚/2]

= 100[3.14×(1/6)- √3/4]

= 100[(3.14/6)- 1.73/4]

= (314/6)-(173/4)

= 52.33- 43.25

= 9.08cm^{2}

Hence area of shaded region is 9.08cm^{2}.

**3. In the figure 7.45, if A is the centre of the circle. PAR = 30°, AP = 7.5, find the area of the segment PQR ( = 3.14)**

**Solution:**

Given radius AP , r = 7.5

Central angle PAR = = 30˚

Area of segment PQR = r^{2}[(/360) – (sin/2)]

= 7.5^{2}[3.14×(30/360)- sin30˚/2]

= 56.25[3.14×(1/12)- 1/4]

= 56.25[(3.14/12)- (3/12)]

= 56.25×0.14/12

= 0.65625cm^{2}

Hence area of segment PQR is 0.65625cm^{2}.

**4. In the figure 7.46, if O is the centre of the circle, PQ is a chord. POQ = 90°, area of shaded region is 114 cm ^{2} , find the radius of the circle. ( = 3.14)**

**Solution:**

Given POQ = = 90°,

area of shaded region PRQ = 114cm^{2}

Area of segment PRQ = r^{2}[(/360) – (sin/2)]

114 = r^{2}[3.14×90/360 – sin90˚/2]

114 = r^{2}[3.14×(1/4) – 1/2]

114 = r^{2}[0.785-0.5]

114 = r^{2}×0.285

r^{2} = 114/0.285 = 400

Taking square root on both sides

r = 20cm

Hence the radius of the circle is 20cm.

**5. A chord PQ of a circle with radius 15 cm subtends an angle of 60° with the centre of the circle. Find the area of the minor as well as the major segment. ( = 3.14, √3 = 1.73)**

**Solution:**

Given central angle = 60˚

Radius ,r = 15cm

Let chord PQ subtend ∠POQ = 60° at centre.

∴ θ = 60°

Area of minor segment = r^{2}[(/360) – (sin/2)]

= 15^{2}[3.14×(60/360) – sin60˚/2]

= 225[3.14×(1/6) – √3/4]

= 225[(3.14/6) – 1.73/4]

= 225[(6.28- 5.19)/12]

= 20.44

Hence area of minor segment is 20.44cm^{2}.

Area of circle = r^{2}

= 3.14×15^{2}

= 3.14×225

= 706.5cm^{2}

Area of major segment = Area of circle – area of minor segment

= 706.5 – 20.44

= 686.06cm^{2}

Hence area of major segment is 686.06cm^{2}.

**Problem Set 7 Page 160**

**1. Choose the correct alternative answer for each of the following questions. **

**(1) The ratio of circumference and area of a circle is 2:7. Find its circumference.**

** (A) 14 (B) 7/ (C) 7 (D) 14/**

**Solution:**

Circumference of circle = 2r

Area of circle = r^{2}

Given ratio of circumference and area = 2:7

2r/r^{2} = 2/7

2/r = 2/7

r = 7cm

Circumference = 2r = 2×7 = 14.

Hence option A is the answer.

**(2) If measure of an arc of a circle is 160° and its length is 44 cm, find the circumference of the circle.**

** (A) 66 cm (B) 44 cm (C) 160 cm (D) 99 cm **

**Solution:**

Given measure of arc = 160˚

Length of arc = 44cm

Length of arc = (/360)2r

44 = (160/360)×2r

2r = 44×360/160 = 99

Circumference = 2r

Hence circumference is 99cm

So option D is the answer.

**(3) Find the perimeter of a sector of a circle if its measure is 90 ° and radius is 7 cm. **

**(A) 44 cm (B) 25 cm (C) 36 cm (D) 56 cm**

**Solution:**

Given radius , r = 7cm

= 90˚

Perimeter of a sector = 2r + length of arc

= 2r + (/360)2r

= 2×7 + (90/360)×2×(22/7)×7

= 14+11

= 25cm

Hence option B is the answer.

**(4) Find the curved surface area of a cone of radius 7 cm and height 24 cm. **

**(A) 440 cm ^{2} (B) 550 cm^{2} (C) 330 cm^{2} (D) 110 cm^{2} **

**Solution:**

Given height , h = 24cm

Radius , r = 7cm

Slant height *l* = √(h^{2}+r^{2})

= √(24^{2}+7^{2})

= √(576+49)

=√625

= 25cm

Curved surface area of a cone = r*l*

= 22/7)×7×25

= 22×25

=550cm^{2}

Hence option B is the answer.

**(5) The curved surface area of a cylinder is 440 cm ^{2} and its radius is 5 cm. Find its height.**

**(A) 44 / cm (B) 22 cm (C) 44 cm (D) 22/ cm**

**Solution:**

Given radius , r = 5cm

Curved surface area = 440cm^{2}

Curved surface area = 2rh

440 = 2rh

h = 440/2r

= 440/(2×5)

= 440/10

= 44

Hence option C is the answer.

**(6) A cone was melted and cast into a cylinder of the same radius as that of the base of the cone. If the height of the cylinder is 5 cm, find the height of the cone. **

**(A) 15 cm (B) 10 cm (C) 18 cm (D) 5 cm**

**Solution:**

Given radius of both cone and cylinder are equal.

Height of cylinder,H = 5cm

Let height of cone be h.

Since cone is melted and cast into a cylinder, volume of cone is equal to volume of cylinder.

(1/3)r^{2}h = r^{2}H

h = 5×3 = 15cm

Hence option A is the answer.

**(7) Find the volume of a cube of side 0.01 cm.**

** (A) 1 cm ^{3} (B) 0.001 cm^{3} (C) 0.0001 cm^{3} (D) 0.000001 cm^{3}**

**Solution:**

Volume of a cube ,V= a^{3}

Given side , a = 0.01

V = 0.01^{3} = 0.000001cm^{3}

Hence option D is the answer.

**(8) Find the side of a cube of volume 1 m ^{3} .**

**(A) 1 cm (B) 10 cm (C) 100 cm (D)1000 cm**

**Solution:**

Given volume , V = 1m^{3}

Volume of cube of side a = a^{3}

a^{3} = 1m^{3}

a =1m = 100cm

Hence option C is the answer.

**2. A washing tub in the shape of a frustum of a cone has height 21 cm. The radii of the circular top and bottom are 20 cm and 15 cm respectively. What is the capacity of the tub ?( = 22/7)**

**Solution:**

Given r_{1} = 20cm

r_{2} = 15cm

Height , h = 21cm

Volume of frustum ,V = (1/3)h(r_{1}^{2}+r_{2}^{2}+r_{1}×r_{2})

V = (1/3)×(22/7)×21×(20^{2}+15^{2}+20×15)

V = 22×(400+225+300)

V = 22×925

V = 22×925

= 20350cm^{3}

= 20.34litres [∵ 1 litre = 1000cm^{3}]

Hence the capacity of the tub is 20.34 litres.

**3*. Some plastic balls of radius 1 cm were melted and cast into a tube. The thickness, length and outer radius of the tube were 2 cm, 90 cm and 30 cm respectively. How many balls were melted to make the tube ?**

**Solution:**

Given radius of plastic ball, r = 1cm

Thickness of tube = 2cm

Height of tube, h = 90cm

Outer radius, R = 30cm

Inner radius of tube ,r_{1 }= outer radius – thickness

= 30-2 = 28cm

Volume of plastic needed for tube = volume of outer tube – volume of inner tube

= R^{2}h -r_{1}^{2}h

= h(R^{2}-r_{1}^{2})

= ×90(30^{2}-28^{2})

= ×90(900-784)

= ×90×116

= 10440cm^{3}

Volume of a plastic ball = (4/3)r^{3}

= (4/3)×1^{3}

= (4/3)cm^{3}

Number of balls melted to make tube = Volume of plastic needed for tube/ Volume of a plastic ball

= 10440÷(4/3)

= 10440×3/4

= 7830

Hence the number of balls needed to make tube is 7830.
