## Exercise 19.1 Page No: 19.7

**Question 1: Curved surface area of a right circular cylinder is 4.4 m ^{2}. If the radius of the base of the cylinder is 0.7 m. Find its height.**

**Solution:**

Radius of the base of the cylinder = r = 0.7 m (Given)

Curved surface area of cylinder = C.S.A = 4.4m^{2 }^{ }(Given)

Let â€˜hâ€™ be the height of the cylinder.

We know, curved surface area of a cylinder = 2Ï€rh

Therefore,

2Ï€rh = 4.4

2 x 3.14 x 0.7 x h = 4.4

[using Ï€=3.14 ]or h = 1

Therefore the height of the cylinder is 1 m.

**Question 2: In a hot water heating system, there is a cylindrical pipe of length 28 m and diameter 5 cm. Find the total radiating surface in the system.**

**Solution:**

Height of cylinder (h) = Length of cylindrical pipe = 28 m or 2800 cm (Given)

[1 m = 100 cm]Diameter of circular end of pipe = 5 cm (given)

Let â€˜râ€™ be the radius of circular end, then r = diameter/2 = 5/2 cm

We know, Curved surface area of cylindrical pipe = 2Ï€rh

= 2 x 3.14 x 5/2 x 2800

[using Ï€ = 3.14]= 44000

Therefore, the area of radiating surface is 44000 cm^{2}.

**Question 3: A cylindrical pillar is 50 cm in diameter and 3.5 m in height. Find the cost of painting the curved surface of the pillar at the rate of Rs 12.50 per m ^{2}.**

**Solution:**

Height of cylindrical pillar (h) = 3.5 m

Radius of circular end of pillar ( r) = 50/2 cm = 25 cm = 0.25 m

[As radius = half of the diameter] and [1 m = 100 cm]Curved surface area of cylindrical pillar = 2Ï€rh

= 2 x 3.14 x 0.25 x 3.5

= 5.5

Curved surface area of cylindrical pillar is 5.5 m.

Find the cost:

Cost of whitewashing 1m^{2} is Rs 12.50 (Given)

Cost of whitewashing 5.5 m^{2} area = Rs. 12.50 x 5.5 = Rs. 68.75

Thus the cost of whitewashing the pillar is Rs 68.75.

**Question 4: It is required to make a closed cylindrical tank of height 1 m and the base diameter of 140 cm from a metal sheet. How many square meters of the sheet are required for the same? **

**Solution:**

Height of cylindrical tank (h) = 1 m

Base radius of cylindrical tank (r) = diameter/2 = 140/2 cm = 70 cm = 0.7 m

[1 m = 100 cm]Now,

Area of sheet required = Total surface area of tank (TSA) = 2Ï€r(h + r)

=2 x 3.14 x 0.7(1 + 0.7)

= 7.48

Therefore, 7.48 m^{2} metal sheet is required to make required closed cylindrical tank.

**Question 5: A solid cylinder has a total surface area of 462 cm ^{2}. Its curved surface area is one-third of its total surface area. Find the radius and height of the cylinder. **

**Solution:**

Total surface area of a cylinder = 462 cm^{2 } (Given)

As per given statement:

Curved or lateral surface area = 1/3 (Total surface area)

â‡’ 2Ï€rh = 1/3(462)

â‡’ 2Ï€rh = 154

â‡’ h = 49/2r â€¦.(1)

[Using Ï€ = 22/7]Again,

Total surface area = 462 cm^{2}

2Ï€r(h + r) = 462

2Ï€r(49/2r + r) = 462

or 49 + 2r^{2} = 147

or 2r^{2} = 98

or r = 7

Substitute the value of r in equation (1), and find the value of h.

h = 49/2(7) = 49/14 = 7/2

Height (h) = 7/2 cm

Answer: Radius = 7 cm and height = 7/2 cm of the cylinder

**Question 6: The total surface area of a hollow cylinder which is open on both the sides is 4620 sq.cm and the area of the base ring is 115.5 sq.cm and height is 7 cm. Find the thickness of the cylinder.**

**Solution:**

Given:

Total surface area of hollow cylinder = 4620 cm^{2}

Height of cylinder (h) = 7 cm

Area of base ring = 115.5 cm^{2}

To find: Thickness of the cylinder

Let â€˜r_{1}â€™ and â€˜r_{2}â€™ are the inner and outer radii of the hollow cylinder respectively.

Then, Ï€r_{2}^{2} â€“ Ï€r_{1}^{2} = 115.5 â€¦â€¦.(1)

And,

2Ï€r_{1}h +2Ï€r_{2}h+ 2(Ï€r_{2}^{2} â€“ Ï€r_{1}^{2}) = 4620

Or 2Ï€h (r_{1} + r_{2} ) + 2 x 115.5 = 4620

(Using equation (1) and h = 7 cm)

or 2Ï€7 (r_{1} + r_{2} ) = 4389

or Ï€ (r_{1} + r_{2} ) = 313.5 â€¦.(2)

Again, from equation (1),

Ï€r_{2}^{2} â€“ Ï€r_{1}^{2} = 115.5

or Ï€(r_{2} + r_{1}) (r_{2} – r_{1}) = 115.5

Using result of equation (2),

313.5 (r_{2} – r_{1}) = 115.5

or r_{2} – r_{1 }= 7/19 = 0.3684

Therefore, thickness of the cylinder is 7/19 cm or 0.3684 cm.

**Question 7: Find the ratio between the total surface area of a cylinder to its curved surface area, given that height and radius of the tank are 7.5 m and 3.5 m.**

**Solution:**

Height of cylinder (h) = 7.5 m

Radius of cylinder (r) = 3.5 m

We know, Total Surface Area of cylinder (T.S.A) = 2Ï€r(r+h)

And, Curved surface area of a cylinder(C.S.A) = 2Ï€rh

Now, Ratio between the total surface area of a cylinder to its curved surface area is

T.S.A/C.S.A = 2Ï€r(r+h)/2Ï€rh

= (r + h)/h

= (3.5 + 7.5)/7.5

= 11/7.5

= 22/15 or 22:15

Therefore the required ratio is 22:15.
