**Question 1. Find the volume of a sphere whose radius is (i) 7 cm (ii) 0.63 m Solution:** (i) Here, radius (r) = 7 cm

âˆ´ Volume of the sphere =

Thus, the required volume = 1437 (1/3)cm^{3}

(ii) Here, radius (r) = 0.63 m

= 1.047816 m^{3} = 1.05 m^{3} (apÏ€rox)

Thus, the required volume is 1.05 m^{3} (apÏ€rox).

**Question 2. Find the amount of water displaced by a solid spherical ball of diameter (i) 28 cm (ii) 0.21 m Solution: **(i) Diameter of the ball = 28 cm

âˆ´ Radius of the ball (r) =(28/2) cm = 14 cm

â‡’ Volume of the spherical ball =

Thus, the amount of water displaced = 11498 (2/3) cm^{3}.

(ii) Diameter of the solid spherical ball = 0.21 m

**Question 3. The diameter of a metallic ball is 4.2 cm. What is the mass of the ball, if the density of the metal is 8.9 g per cm ^{3}? Solution**: Diameter of the metallic ball = 4.2 cm

â‡’ Radius (r) = (42/2) cm = 2.1 cm

âˆ´ Volume of the metallic ball =

âˆµ Density = 8.9 g per cm^{3}

âˆ´ Mass of the ball = 8.9 x [Volume of the ball]

= 345.39 g (apÏ€rox.)

Thus, the mass of ball is 345.39 g (apÏ€rox.).

**Question 4. The diameter of the moon is apÏ€roximately one-fourth of the diameter of the earth. What fraction of the volume of the earth is the volume of the moon? Solution:** Let diameter of the earth be 2r.

â‡’ Radius of the earth =(2r/2) = r

âˆµ Diameter of the moon = (1/4)(Diameter of the earth)

âˆ´ Radius of the moon = (1/4)(Radius of the moon)

â‡’ Radius of the moon = (1/4) (r) = (r/4)

âˆ´ Volume of the earth = (4/3)Ï€r ^{3}

Volume of the moon =

âˆ´ The required fraction is (1/64)

.

**Question 5. How many litres of milk can a hemispherical bowl of diameter 10.5 cm hold? Solution:** Diameter of the hemisphere = 10.5 cm

â‡’ Radius of the hemisphere (r) = (10.5/2) cm = (105/20) cm

Volume of the hemispherical bowl = (2/3) Ï€r

âˆ´ Capacity of the hemispherical bowl = 303.1875 cm^{3}

= 0.3031875 l = 0.303 l (apÏ€rox.) [âˆµ 1000 cm^{3} = 1 l]

Thus, the capacity of the bowl = 0.303 l (apÏ€rox.)

**Question 6. A hemispherical tank is made up of an iron sheet 1 cm thick. If the inner radius is 1 m, then find the volume of the iron used to make the tank. Solution: **Inner radius (r) = 1m

âˆµ Thickness = 1 cm = (1/100) m = 0.01 m

âˆ´ Outer radius (R) = 1 m + 0.01 m = 1.01 m

Now, outer volume of the hemispherical bowl

Inner volume of the hemispherical bowl

âˆ´ Volume of the iron used = [Outer volume] â€“ [Inner volume]

= 0.063487776 m^{3}

= 0.06348 m^{3} (apÏ€rox.)

Thus, the required volume of the iron = 0.06348 m^{3}

**Question 7. Find the volume of a sphere whose surface area is 154 cm ^{2} Solution: **Let â€˜râ€™ be the radius of the sphere.

âˆ´ Its surface area = 4Ï€r

â‡’ 4Ï€r

Now, volume of the sphere =

Thus, the required volume of the sphere = cm^{3}

**Question 8. A dome of a building is in the form of a hemisphere. From inside, it was white washed at the cost of **** 4989.60. If the cost of white washing is ****20 per square metre, find the (i) inside surface area of the dome, (ii) volume of the air inside the dome. Solution: **Total cost of white washing = 4989.60

Rate of white washing = 20 per m

âˆ´

Let â€˜râ€™ be the radius of the hemispherical dome.

âˆ´ Surface area = 2Ï€r^{2}

âˆ´ 2Ï€r^{2} = 249.48

(i) To find the inside surface area of the dome:

âˆµ Radius of the hemisphere (r) = 6.3 m

Surface area of a hemisphere = 2Ï€r^{2} m^{2}

âˆ´ Surface area of the dome = 2 x (22/7) (6.3)^{2} m^{2}

Thus, the required surface area of the dome = 249.48 m^{2 }

(ii) To find the volume of air in the dome:

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

âˆ´ Volume of the dome

Thus, the required volume of air inside the dome is 523.9 m^{3} (apÏ€rox.).

**Question 9. Twenty seven solid iron spheres, each of radius r and surface area S are melted to form a sphere with surface area S'. Find the (i) radius râ€™ of the sphere, (ii) ratio of S and S'. Solution:** (i) To find r ':

âˆµ Radius of a small sphere = r

Since,

(ii) To find ratio of S and S ':

âˆµ Surface area of a small sphere = 4Ï€r^{2 }

âˆ´ S= 4Ï€r^{2 }and S ' = 4p(3r)^{2}

Now,

Thus, S : S' = 1 : 9

**Question 10. A capsule of medicine is in the shape of a sphere of diameter 3.5 mm. How much medicine (in mm ^{3}) is needed to fill this capsule? Solution: **Diameter of the spherical capsule = 3.5 mm

â‡’ Radius of the spherical capsule (r) = (3.5/2) mm

âˆ´ Volume of the spherical capsule

Thus, the required quantity of medicine = 22.46 mm^{3} (apÏ€rox).
