Internal radius of the sphere = 3cm = r1
External radius of the sphere = 5cm = r2
Height of the cylinder = cm = h
Volume of the spherical shell = Volume of cylinder
r3 = 7cm
Therefore diameter of the cylinder = 2(radius) = 14cm
Q21. A hemisphere of the lead of radius 7 cm is cast into a right circular cone of height 49 cm. Find the radius of the base.
Radius of the hemisphere = Volume of cone
r2 = 3.47cm
Therefore radius of the base = 3.74cm

1 : 2 : 3
Thereforetheratiois1 : 2 : 3.
Q26. A cylindrical tub of radius 12 cm contains water to a depth of 20 cm. A spherical form ball is dropped into the tub and thus the level of water is raised by 6.75 cm. What is the radius of the ball?
Radius of cylindrical tub = 12cm
Depth = 20cm
Let r be the radius of the ball
Volume of the ball = Volume of water raised
πr3 = πr2h
r3 = 729
r = 9cm
Therefore radius of the ball = 9cm
Q27. The largest sphere is carved out of a cube of side 10.5 cm. Find the volume of the sphere.

Let r be the common radius
Height of the cone = height of the cylinder = 2r
v1 = Volume of sphere = πr3
v1 = Volume of cylinder = πr2h = πr2×2r
v1 = Volume of cone =

Q29. A cube of side 4 cm contains a sphere touching its side. Find the volume of the gap in between.
It is given that
Cube side = 4cm
Volume of cube = (4cm)3 = 64cm3
Diameter of the sphere = Length of the side of the cube = 4cm
Therefore radius of the sphere = 2cm
Volume of the sphere = ×(2)3 = 33.52cm3
Volume of gap = Volume of cube - Volume of sphere
= 64cm3 - 33.52cm3 = 30.48cm3
