Question

The base of a prism is a right triangle with the sides perpendicular to each other of lengths 5 cm and 10 cm, respectively. If the height of the prism is 100 cm, then find the amount of water it will displace when placed in a container filled with water.

Solution

Here, volume of water displaced = volume of the prism

Since, the triangle is a right-angled triangle,

Area = 12×base×height

= 12×5×10=25 cm2

Now, volume of the prism = base area × height

=25×100 (since height is given as 100 cm)

=2,500 cm3

So, the volume of water displaced is 2,500 cm3.
