Practice Set 16.1 Page No: 108

**1. Find the volume of a box if its length, breadth and height are 20 cm, 10.5 cm and 8 cm respectively.**

**Solution: **

Given,

A cuboid shaped box whose length (l) = 20 cm, breadth (b) = 10.5 cm and height (h) = 8cm

So, volume of a box = l x b x h

= 20 x 10.5 x 8

= 1680 cc

Therefore, the volume of the box is 1680 cc.

**2. A cuboid shape soap bar has volume 150 cc. Find its thickness if its length is 10 cm and breadth is 5 cm.**

**Solution: **

Given,

A cuboid shaped soap bar whose length (l) = 10 cm, breadth (b) = 5 cm and volume = 150 cc

Required to find: Thickness of the soap bar (h)

We know that,

Volume of soap bar = l x b x h

150 = 10 x 5 x h

150 = 50h

150/50 = h

â‡’ h = 3 cm

Therefore, the thickness of the soap bar is 3 cm.

**3. How many bricks of length 25 cm, breadth 15 cm and height 10 cm are required to build a wall of length 6 m, height 2.5 m and breadth 0.5 m?**

**Solution: **

Given, a cuboidal shape brick having dimensions:

length (l_{1}) = 25 cm,

breadth (b_{1}) = 15 cm,

height (h_{1}) = 10 cm

And, a cuboidal shape wall:

length (l_{2}) = 6 m,

height (h_{2}) = 2.5 m,

breadth (b_{2}) = 0.5 m

Required to find: Number of bricks required to build the wall

From the question itâ€™s understood that,

When all the bricks are arranged to build a wall, the volume of all the bricks is equal to volume of wall.

So,

Number of bricks = Volume of the wall/ Volume of a brick

Now,

Volume of a brick = l_{1}Â x b_{1}Â x h_{1}

= 25 x 15 x 10 cc

And, we have

l_{2}Â = 6m = 6 x 100 [âˆµ 1m = 100cm]

= 600 cm

h_{2}Â = 2.5 m = 2.5 x 100 = 250 cm

b_{2}Â = 0.5 m = 0.5 x 100 = 50 cm

So,

Volume of the wall = l_{2}Â x b_{2}Â x h_{2}

= 600 x 50 x 250 cc

Finally, the Number of bricks = Volume of the wall/ Volume of a brick

= (600 Ã— 50 Ã— 250)/ (25 Ã— 15 Ã— 10)

= 40 x 2 x 25

= 2000 bricks

Therefore, the number of bricks required to build the wall is 2000.

**4. For rain water harvesting a tank of length 10 m, breadth 6 m and depth 3m is built. What is the capacity of the tank? How many litre of water can it hold?**

**Solution: **

Given,

A cuboidal tank whose length (l) = 10 m, breadth (b) = 6 m, depth (h) = 3 m

Required to find: Capacity of the tank and litre of water the tank can hold.

Firstly, converting the given into suitable units

l = 10m = 10 x 100 [âˆµ 1m = 100cm]

= 1000 cm,

b = 6 m = 6 x 100 = 600 cm,

h = 3 m = 3 x 100 = 300 cm

Now,

Volume of the tank = l x b x h

= 1000 x 600 x 300

= 18,00,00,000 cc

Secondly,

Capacity of the tank = Volume of the tank

= 18,00,00,000 cc

=Â 18,00,00,0001000 [âˆµ 1 litre =1000 cc]

= 1,80,000 litre

Therefore, the capacity of the tank is 18,00,00,000 cc and it can hold 1,80,000 litre of water.

**1. In each example given below, radius of base of a cylinder and its height are given. Then find the curved surface area and total surface area.**

**(1) r = 7 cm, h = 10 cm (2) r = 1.4 cm, h = 2.1 cm (3) r = 2.5 cm, h = 7 cm**

**(4) r = 70 cm, h = 1.4 cm (5) r = 4.2 cm, h = 14 cm**

**Solution: **

(1) Given, for a cylinder: r = 7 cm and h = 10 cm

Required to find: Curved surface area of cylinder and total surface area

Curved surface area of the cylinder = 2Ï€rh

= 2 xÂ (22/7)Â x 7 x 10

= 2 x 22 x 10

= 440 sq.cm

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

= 2 xÂ (22/7)Â x 7(10 + 7)

= 2 xÂ (22/7)Â x 7 x 17

= 2 x 22 x 17

= 748 sq.cm

Thus, the curved surface area of the cylinder is 440 sq.cm and its total surface area is 748 sq.cm.

(2) Given, for a cylinder: r = 1.4 cm and h = 2.1 cm

Required to find: Curved surface area of cylinder and total surface area

Curved surface area of the cylinder = 2Ï€rh

= 2 xÂ (22/7)Â x 1.4 x 2.1

= 2 x 22 x 0.2 x 2.1

= 18.48 sq.cm

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

= 2 xÂ (22/7)Â x 1.4 (2.1 + 1.4)

= 2 xÂ (22/7)Â x 1.4 x 3.5

= 2 x 22 x 0.2 x 3.5

= 30.80 sq.cm

Thus, the curved surface area of the cylinder is 18.48 sq.cm and its total surface area is 30.80 sq.cm.

(3) Given, for a cylinder: r = 2.5 cm and h = 7 cm

Required to find: Curved surface area of cylinder and total surface area

Curved surface area of the cylinder = 2Ï€rh

= 2 xÂ (22/7)Â x 2.5 x 7

= 2 x 22 x 2.5

= 110 sq.cm

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

= 2 xÂ (22/7)Â x 2.5 (7+ 2.5)

= 2 xÂ (22/7)Â x 2.5 x 9.5

=Â 1045/7

= 149.29 sq.cm

Thus, the curved surface area of the cylinder is 110 sq.cm and its total surface area is 149.29 sq.cm.

(4) Given, for a cylinder: r = 70 cm and h = 1.4 cm

Required to find: Curved surface area of cylinder and total surface area

Curved surface area of the cylinder = 2Ï€rh

= 2 xÂ (22/7)Â x 70 x 1.4

= 2 x 22 x 10 x 1.4

= 616 sq.cm

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

= 2 xÂ (22/7)Â x 70(1.4 + 70)

= 2 xÂ (22/7)Â x 70 x 71.4

= 2 x 22 x 10 x 71.4

= 2 x 22 x 714

= 31416 sq.cm

Thus, the curved surface area of the cylinder is 616 sq.cm and its total surface area is 31416 sq.cm.

(5) Given, for a cylinder: r = 4.2 cm and h = 14 cm

Required to find: Curved surface area of cylinder and total surface area

Curved surface area of the cylinder = 2Ï€rh

= 2 xÂ 227Â x 4.2 x 14 = 2 x 22 x 4.2 x 2

= 369.60 sq.cm

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

= 2 xÂ 227Â x 4.2 (14+ 4.2)

= 2 xÂ 227Â x 4.2 x 18.2

= 2 x 22 x 0.6 x 18.2

= 480.48 sq.cm

Thus, the curved surface area of the cylinder is 369.60 sq.cm and its total surface area is 480.48 sq.cm.

**2. Find the total surface area of a closed cylindrical drum if its diameter is 50 cm and height is 45 cm. (Ï€ = 3.14)**

**Solution: **

Given, for cylindrical drum:

Diameter (d) = 50 cm

and height (h) = 45 cm

Required to find: Total surface area of the cylindrical drum

We have, diameter (d) = 50 cm

â‡’ radius (r) =Â d/2 = 50/2Â = 25 cm

Now,

Total surface area of the cylindrical drum = 2Ï€r (h + r)

= 2 x 3.14 x 25 (45 + 25)

= 2 x 3.14 x 25 x 70

= 10,990 sq.cm

Thus, the total surface area of the cylindrical drum is 10,990 sq.cm.

**3. Find the area of base and radius of a cylinder if its curved surface area is 660 sq.cm and height is 21 cm.**

**Solution: **

Given,

Curved surface area = 660 sq.cm, and height = 21 cm

Required to find: area of base and radius of a cylinder

We know that,

Curved surface area of cylinder = 2Ï€rh

â‡’ 660 = 2 xÂ (22/7)Â x r x 21

660 = 2 x 22 x r x 3

6602 Ã— 22 Ã— 3 = r

6602 Ã— 66 = r

r = 5 cm

Now,

Area of a base of the cylinder = Ï€rÂ²

=Â (22/7)Â x 5 x 5

=Â 5507

= 78.57 sq.cm

Thus, the radius of the cylinder is 5 cm and the area of its base is 78.57 sq.cm.

And, for cylindrical lid:

height (h_{2}) = 2 cm

Required to find: (i) Surface area of the cylinder with one side open

(ii) Area of sheet required to made a lid

We have, diameter (d) = 28 cm

â‡’ radius (r) =Â d/2 = 28/2Â = 14 cm

(i) Surface area of the cylinder with one side open = Curved surface area + Area of a base

= 2Ï€rh_{1}Â + Ï€rÂ²

= Ï€r (2h_{1}Â + r)

=Â (22/7)Â x 14 x (2 x 20 + 14)

= 22 x 2 x (40 + 14)

= 22 x 2 x 54

= 2376 sq.cm

(ii) Area of sheet required to made a lid = Curved surface area of lid + Area of upper surface

= 2Ï€rh_{2}Â + Ï€rÂ²

= Ï€r (2h_{2}Â + r)

=Â (22/7)Â x 14 x (2 x 2 + 14)

= 22 x 2 x (4 + 14)

= 22 x 2 x 18

= 792 sq. cm

Thus, the area of the sheet required to make the cylindrical container is 2376 sq. cm and the approximate area of a sheet required to make the lid is 792 sq. cm.

**Solution: **

Given,

The interior diameter of the tank (d) = 1.6 m and depth (h) = 0.7 m

Required to find: Capacity of the tank

Now,

Interior radius (r) =Â d/2 = 1.6/2

= 0.8 m

= 0.8 x 10 [âˆµ 1m = 100cm]

= 80 cm

And, h = 0.7 m = 0.7 x 100 = 70 cm

Capacity of the tank = Volume of the tank = Ï€rÂ²h

=Â (22/7)Â x 80 x 80 x 70

= 22 x 80 x 80 x 10

= 1408000 cc

=Â 1408000/1000 [âˆµ1 litre = 1000 cc]

= 1408 litre

Thus, the tank can hold 1408 litre of water

**4. Find the volume of the cylinder if the circumference of the cylinder is 132 cm and height is 25 cm.**

**Solution: **

Given,

Circumference of the base of cylinder = 132 cm and height (h) = 25 cm

Required to find: Volume of the cylinder

We know that,

Circumference of base of cylinder = 2Ï€r

â‡’ 132 = 2 xÂ (22/7)Â x r

(132 Ã— 7)/(2 Ã— 22) = r

(6 Ã— 7)/2 = r

3 x 7 = r

âˆ´ r = 21 cm

Now,

Volume of the cylinder = Ï€rÂ²h

=Â 227Â x 21 x 21 x 25

= 22 x 3 x 21 x 25

= 34650 cc
