**Question 1.**

**A tent is in the form of a right circular cylinder surmounted by a cone. The diameter of cylinder is 24 m. The height of the cylindrical portion is 11 m while the vertex of the cone is 16 m above the ground. Find the area of canvas required for the tent.**

**Solution:**

Diameter of the base of the tent = 24 m

∴ Radius (r)= \((\frac { 24 }{ 2 } )\) = 12m

Total height of the tent = 16 m

Height of the cylindrical portion (h_{1}) = 11 m

Height of the conical portion (h_{2}) =16-11 = 5 m

**Question 2.**

**A rocket is in the form of a circular cylinder closed at the lower end with a cone of the same radius attached to the top. The cylinder is of radius 2.5 m and height 21 m and the cone has the slant height 8 m. Calculate the total surface area and the volume of the rocket.**

**Solution:**

Radius of the base of the rocket (r) = 2.5 m

Height of cylindrical portion (h_{1}) = 21 m

Slant height of the conical portion (l) = 8 m

Let height of conical portion = h_{2}

**Question 3.**

**A tent of height 77 dm is in the form of a right circular cylinder of diameter 36 m and height 44
dm surmounted by a right circular cone. Find the cost of the canvas at Rs. 3.50 per m ^{2 }. (Use π = 22/7).**

**Solution:**

Total height of the tent = 77 dm

Height of cylindrical part (h

_{1}) = 44 dm

= 4.4 m

Height of conical part (h

_{2}) = 7.7 – 4.4 = 3.3 m

Diameter of the base of the tent = 36 m

**Question 4.**

**A toy is in the form of a cone surmounted on a hemisphere. The diameter of the base and the height of the cone are 6 cm and 4 cm, respectively. Determine the surface area of the toy. (Use π = 3.14).**

**Solution:**

Diameter of the base of the toy = 6 cm

∴ Radius (r) = \((\frac { 6 }{ 2 } )\) = 3 cm

Height (h) = 4 cm

Total surface area of the toy = curved surface area of the conical part + surface area of the hemispherical part

= πrl + 2πr² = πr (l + 2r)

= 3.14 x 3 (5 + 6) = 3.14 x 3 x 11 cm²

= 3.14 x 33 = 103.62 cm²

**Question 5.**

**A solid is in the form of a right circular cylinder, with a hemisphere at one end and a cone at the other end. The radius of the common base is 3.5 cm and the ~ heights of the cylindrical and conical portions are 10 cm and 6 cm, respectively. Find the total surface area of the solid. ****(Use π = 22/7)
**

**Solution:**

Radius of the common base (r) = 3.5 m

Height of cylindrical part (h

_{1}) = 10 cm

Height of conical part (h

_{2}) = 6 cm

Now total surface area of the solid = curved surface of conical part + curved surface of cylindrical part + curved surface of hemispherical part

**Question 6.**

**A toy is in the shape of a right circular cylinder with a hemisphere on one end and a cone on the other. The radius and height of the cylindrical part are 5 cm and 13 cm respectively. The radii of the hemispherical and conical parts are the same as that of the cylindrical part. Find the surface area of the toy if the total height of the toy is 30 cm. (C.B.S.E. 2002)**

**Solution:**

Radius of the base of the cylindrical part (r) = 5 cm

Height of cylindrical part (h_{1}) = 13 cm

Height of the conical part (h_{2}) = 30 – (13 + 5) = 30- 18 = 12 cm

**A cylindrical tub of radius 5 cm and length 9.8 cm is full of water. A solid in the form of a right circular cone mounted on a hemisphere is immersed in the tub. If the radius of the hemisphere is immersed in the tub. If the radius of the hemi-sphere is 3.5 cm and height of the cone outside the hemisphere is 5 cm, find the volume of the water left in the tub. (Take π = 22/7) (C.B.S.E. 2000C)**

**Solution:**

Radius of the cylindrical tub (R) = 5 cm

and height (h_{1}) = 9.8 cm

Radius of the solid (r) = 3.5 cm

and height of cone (h_{1}) = 5 cm

= 38.5 x 4 = 154 cm3

∴ Water flowed out of the tub = 154 cm³

Remaining water in the tub = 770 – 154

= 616 cm³

**A petrol tank is a cylinder of base diameter 21 cm and length 18 cm fitted with conical ends each of axis length 9 cm. Determine the capacity of the tank.**

**Solution:**

Diameter of cylindrical part = 21 cm 21

∴ Radius (r) = \((\frac { 21 }{ 2 } )\) cm

Height of cylindrical part (h_{1}) = 18 cm

and height of each conical part (h_{2}) = 9 cm

**Question 10.**

**A conical hole is drilled in a circular cylinder of height 12 cm and base radius 5 cm. The height and the base radius of the cone are also the same. Find the whole surface and volume of the remaining cylinder.**

**Solution:**

Base radius of the cylinder (r) = 5 cm

and height (h) = 12 cm

∴ Volume = πr^{2}h = n (5)2 x 12 cm3 = 300π cm^{3}

∵ The base and height of the cone drilled are the same as those of the cylinder

∴ Volume of cone = \((\frac { 1 }{ 3 } )\)πr^{2}h

**Solution:
**Diameter of the base of the tent = 20 m

∴ Radius (r) =\((\frac { 20 }{ 2 } )\) = 10 m

Height of cylindrical part (h

_{1}) = 2.5 m

and height of conical part (h

_{2}) = 7.5 m

Slant height of the conical part (l)

**Question 12.**

**A boiler is in the form of a cylinder 2 m long with hemispherical ends each of 2 metre diameter. Find the volume of the boiler.**

**Solution:**

**A vessel is a hollow cylinder fitted with a hemispherical bottom of the same base. The depth of the cylinder is \((\frac { 14 }{ 3 } )\) m and the diameter of hemisphere is 3.5 m. Calculate the volume and the internal surface area of the solid.**

**Solution:**

Diameter of the cylindrical part = 3.5 m

∴Radius (r) = \((\frac { 3.5 }{ 2 } )\) = 1.75 = \((\frac { 7 }{ 4 } )\) m

and height (h) = \((\frac { 14 }{ 3 } )\) m

**Question 14.**

**A solid is composed of a cylinder with hemispherical ends. If the whole length of the solid is 104 cm and the radius of each of the hemispherical ends is 7 cm, find the cost of polishing its surface at the rate of Rs. 10 per dm ^{2} . (C.B.S.E. 2006C)**

**Solution:**

Total height = 104 cm

Radius of hemispherical part (r) = 7 cm

Height of cylinder (h) = 104 cm – 2 x 7 cm = 104- 14 = 90 cm

Total outer surface area = curved surface area of the cylindrical part + 2 x curved surface area of each hemispherical part

**Solution:**

Diameter of inner cylinder = 14 cm

∴Radius (r) = \((\frac { 14 }{ 2 } )\) = 7 cm

Diameter of outer cylinder = 16 cm

∴ Radius (R) = \((\frac { 16 }{ 2 } )\) = 8 cm

Height (h) = 42cm

**

**Solution:**

Length of roller (h) = 1 m = 100 cm

Inner diameter = 54 cm

Thickness of iron sheet = 9 cm

∴ Inner radius (r) = \((\frac { 52 }{ 2 } )\) = 27 cm

and outer radus (R) = 27 + 9 = 36 cm

∴ Volume of the mass = πR²h – πr²h

= πh (R²- r²)

= 3.14 x 100 (36² – 27²) cm

^{3}

= 314 x (36 + 27) (36- 27) cm

^{3}

= 314 x 63 x 9 cm

^{c}

= 178038 cm

^{3}

Weight of 1 cm

^{3}of iron = 7.8 gm

∴ Total weight = 178038 x 7.8 gm

= 1388696.4 gm

= 1388.6964 kg

= 1388.7 kg

**Question 17.**

**A vessel in the form of a hollow hemisphere mounted by a hollow cylinder. The diameter of the hemisphere is 14 cm and the total height of the vessel is 13 cm. Find the inner surface area of the vessel.**

**Solution:**

Diameter of hemisphere = 14 cm

Total height =13 cm

Radius of hemisphere = \((\frac { 14 }{ 2 } )\) = 7 cm

∴ Height of cylindrical part =13-7 = 6 cm

∴ Inner surface area of the vessel = inner surface area of cylindrical part + inner surface area of hemispherical part

**Question 18.**

**A toy is in the form of a cone of radius 3.5 cm mounted on a hemisphere of same radius. The total height of the toy is 15.5 cm. Find the total surface area of the toy.**

**Solution:**

Radius of cone (r) – 3.5 cm

Total height of the toy = 15.5 cm

Height of the conical part (h) = 15.5 – 3.5 = 12 cm

∴ Slant height of the cone (l)

**The difference between outside and inside surface areas of cylindrical metallic pipe 14 cm long is 44 m ^{2}. If the pipe is made of 99 cm^{3} of metal, find the outer and inner radii of the pipe.**

**Solution:**

In cylindrical metallic pipe,

length of pipe = 14 cm

Difference between outside and inside

surface area = 44 m

^{2}

Volume of pipe material = 99 cm

^{3}

Let R and r be the outer and inner radii of the pipe respectively, then Outer surface area – inner surface area = 44 cm

**Solution:**

Diamter of the base = 12 cm

∴ Radius (r) = \((\frac { 12 }{ 2 } )\) = 6 cm

Height of the cylindrical portion (h_{1})= 110 cm

and height of conical portion (h_{2}) = 9 cm

**Question 22.**

**A solid toy is in the form of a hemisphere surmounted by a right circular cone. Height of the cone is 2 cm and the diameter of the base is 4 cm. If a right circular cylinder circumscribes the toy, find how much more space it will cover.**

**Solution:**

Height of conical part (h) = 2 cm

Diameter of base = 4 cm

Now volume of the cylinder which circum scribes the toy = πr²h

= π (2)² x 4 = 16π cm³

∴ Difference of their volumes = 16π – 8π = 8πcm³

**Question 23.**

**A solid consisting of a right circular cone of height 120 cm and radius 60 cm standing on a hemisphere of radius 60 cm is placed upright in a right circular cylinder full of water such that it touches the bottoms.

**Solution:**

Diameter of solid cylinder= 4.2 cm

∴ Radius (r) =\((\frac { 4.2 }{ 2 } )\) = 2.1 cm

Height (h) = 2.8 cm

**Question 31.**

**The largest cone is curved out from one face of solid cube of side 21 cm. Find the volume of the remaining solid. [CBSE 2015]**

**Solution:**

Side of a solid cube (a) = 21 cm

∴ Volume = a^{3}, = (21 )^{3} cm^{3}

= 9261 cm^{3}

Diameter of the base of cone = 21 cm

Now radius of cone curved from it (r) =\((\frac { 21 }{ 2 } )\) cm

and height (h) = 21 cm

**Question 32.**

**A solid wooden toy is in the form of a hemisphere surmounted by a Cone of same radius. The radius of hemisphere is 3.5 cm and the total wood used in the making of toy is 166 \((\frac { 5 }{ 6 } )\) cm ^{3} . Find the height of the toy.

**Solution:**

Radius of hole = \((\frac { 7 }{ 2 } )\)cm and height = 5 cm

Length of block (l) = 15 cm

Breadth (b) = 10 cm and height = 5 cm

∴ Surface area = 2(lb + bh + hl)

= 2(15 x 10 + 10 x 5 + 5 x 15) cm^{2}

= 2(150 + 50 + 75) = 2 x 275 = 550 cm^{2}

Area of circular holes of both sides = 2 x πr^{2}

** A building is in the form of a cylinder surmounted by a hemi-spherical vaulted dome and
contains 41 \((\frac { 19 }{ 21 } )\) m ^{3} of air. If the internal diameter of dome is equal to its total height above the floor, find the height of the building? [NCERT Exemplar]**

**Solution:**

Let total height of the building = Internal diameter of the dome = 2rm

Radius of building (or dome) = \((\frac { 2r }{ 2 } )\) = r m

Height of cylinder = 2r-r = rm

**Question 35.**

**A pen stand made of wood is in the shape of a cuboid with four conical depressions and a cubical depression to hold the pens and pins, respectively. The dimension of the cuboid are 10 cm x 5 cm x 4 cm. The radius of each of the conical depression is 0.5 cm and the depth is 2.1 cm. The edge of the cubical depression is 3 cm. Find the volume of the wood in the entire stand. [NCERT Exemplar]**

**Solution:**

Given that, length of cuboid pen stand (l) = 10 cm

Breadth of cuboid pen stand (b) = 5 cm

and height of cuboid pen stand (h) = 4 cm

∴ Volume of cuboid pend stand = l x b x h= 10 x 5 x 4 = 200 cm^{3}

Also, radius of conical depression (r) = 0.5 cm

and height (depth) of a conical depression (h_{1}) = 2.1 cm

∴ Volume of a conical depression = πrh_{1}

**Question 36.**

** A building is in the form of a cylinder surmounted by a hemispherical dome. The base diameter of the dome is equal to \((\frac { 2 }{ 3 } )\) of the total height of the building. Find the height of the building, if it contains 67 \((\frac { 1 }{ 21 } )\) m ^{3} of air.
**

**Solution:**

Let the radius of the hemispherical dome be r metres and the total height of the building be h metres.

Since the base diameter of the dome is equal to \((\frac { 2 }{ 3 } )\) of the total height, therefore

2 r = \((\frac { 2 }{ 3 } )\)h. This implies r = \((\frac { h }{ 3 } )\). Let H metres be the height of the cylindrical portion.

Therefore, H = h – \((\frac { h }{ 3 } )\) = \((\frac { 2 }{ 3 } )\)h metres.

Volume of the air inside the building = Volume of air inside the dome + Volume of the air inside the

cylinder = \((\frac { 2 }{ 3 } )\) πr

**Solution:**

Let r be the radius of the hemisphere and the cone and h be the height of the cone.

Volume of the toy=Volume of the hemisphere + Volume of the cone

= \((\frac { 1408 }{ 7 } )\) cm^{3
}A cube circumsrcibes the given solid. Therefore, edge of the cube should be 8 cm. Volume of the cube = 83 cm3 = 512 cm3 Difference in the volume of the cube and

**Question 38.**

**A circus tent is in the shape of a cylinder surmounted by a conical top of same diameter. If their common diameter is 56 m, the height of the cylindrical part is 6 m and the total height of the tent above the ground is 27 m, find the area of the canvas used in making the tent. [ICBSE 2017]
**

**Solution:**

We have, diameter of base of cylinder = d = 56 m

Radius of base of cylinder = r= \((\frac { d }{ 2 } )\)= \((\frac { 52 }{ 2 } )\)= 28 m

Height of tent = 27 m

Height of cylinder = 6 m

Height of conical portion = 27 – 6 = 21 m

Radius of conical portion, r = 28 m
