The dimensions of a metallic cuboid = 100 cm × 80 cm × 64 cm
Let’s find out the volume of the cuboid first;
Volume of the cuboid = l × b × h
⇒ 100 × 80 × 64 = 512000cm3
As cuboid is recast into a cube;
Volume of cube = volume of cuboid
⇒ l3 = 512000 ⇒ l =
⇒ l = 80 cm
As the length of the side of the cube = 80 cm
The surface area of the cube = 6(l)2
= 6 x 80 x 80
= 38400 cm2
So, the surface area of the cube is 38400 cm2

R = 12 cm
So, the radius of the resulting sphere is 12cm.

= π × 60 × 60 × 180 – 1/3 × π × 30 × 30 × 60
= 648000π – 1800π (Taking 1800 as common)
= 18000 x 35 x 22/7 = 1.98 m3

Water flown in 1 sec = 40 cm
Water flown in 30 minutes (30 × 60 seconds)
= 40 × 60 × 30 m = 72000 cm
Radius of cylindrical tank = 40 cm
Let Height be h,
As we can see the volume of water which passes through the cylindrical pipe is equal to the volume of water present in the cylindrical tank after half an hour.
Volume of water which passes through the cylindrical = volume of water present in the cylindrical tank after half an hour
πr2h = πr2h
(1)2 × 72000 = (40)2 × h
72000 = 1600 × h
h = 45 cm
The rise in level of water in tank in half an hour will be 45 cm.

Breadth (b) of the rectangular tank = 22 m = 2200 cm and
Height (h) or Rise in the level of water in the tank = 7 cm
Volume of the water in rectangular tank = l × b × h = 6000 x 2200 x 7 = 92400000cm3
Volume of the water flowing through the pipe in 1 s = πR2H
The time taken to rise the water =
= 92400 x (3/77) = 3600s = 1 hr
In 1 hour time the level of water in the tank will rise by 7cm.
Q.26. Water in a canal, 6 m wide and 1.5 m deep, is flowing at a speed of 4 km/hr. How much area will it irrigate in 10 minutes if 8 cm of standing water is needed for irrigation?
Width of the canal = 6 m
Depth of the canal, = 1.5 m
Length of the cuboid = 666.67 m
Water is flowing at a speed of 4 km/hr = 4000m/hr
Area irrigated in 10 minutes = 1/6 hour = (1/6) x 4000 = 666.67 m
Volume of the water flowing in 1/6 hour = Volume of the canal
⇒ Volume of the water flowing in 1/6 hour = 666.67 x 6 x 1.5 = 6000.03 = 60000 m3
Let a m2 is the area irrigated in 1/6 hour,
⇒ a × (8/100) = 6000

If water flows through the pipe at the rate of 3.6km/hr, in how much time will the tank be filled? Also, find the cost of water if the canal department charges at the rate of Rs 0.07 per m3.
Internal diameter of the pipe = 25 cm
Radius (r) of the pipe = 25/2 cm = 1/8m
Diameter of the cylindrical tank = 12 m
Radius (R) of the tank = 6 m
Height (h) of the tank = 2.5 m
In 1 hour water comes out of the pipe = 3.6 km = 3600 m
Let the total hrs = n
Volume of the water coming out of the pipe in n hrs = volume of the cylindrical tank
3600 n = 36 × 2.5 × 8 × 8
100 n = 8 × 8 × 2.5
1000 n = 8 × 8 × 25
n = 16/10 = 1.6 hrs
n = 1 hrs 36 minutes
Now calculate the cost;
Cost of the water = Volume of the cylindrical tank × 0.07
= = 19.80 rs
Total time required to fill the tank is 1 hr 36 minutes and the cost is 19.80 rs.

Volumetric flow rate = 192.5 l/min
Flow rate =
Area = pi × r2 = 3.14 × 3.5 × 3.5 = 38.5 cm2
Since 1 l = 1dm3 = 1000 cm3
Volumetric flow rate = 192.5 × 1000 cm3/min
Flow rate = = 5000 cm/min
Flow rate in km/h = 5000 cm/min = 5000 × 0.00001 km/(1/60 h) = 3 km/h

Radius of marble = 0.7 cm
Number of marbles = 150
Diameter of cylinder = 7cm
Radius of cylinder = 3.5cm
150 × Volume of spherical marbles = volume of cylindrical vessel
⇒ 150 x 4/3 × π × 0.7 × 0.7 × 0.7 = π × 3.5 × 3.5 × h
⇒ 50 x 4 x (0. 7)3 = (3.5)2 x h
⇒ 200 x 0.343 = 12.25 x h
⇒ 68.6/12.25 = 5.6 = h
h = 5.6 cm
The rise in the level of water in the vessel (h) = 5.6 cm
Q.30. Marbles of diameters 1.4 cm are dropped into a cylindrical beaker of diameter 7 cm, containing some water. Find the number of marbles that should be dropped into beaker so that the water level rises by 5.6 cm.
Diameter of marble = 1.4 cm
Diameter of cylinder = 7 cm
Radius of cylinder = 3.5 cm
Cylinder height = 5.6 cm
Radius of marble = 0.7 cm
Volume of 1 marble = 4/3πr3
= = 1.4373
Let the number of marbles be n,
Increase in the Volume of cylinder due to n marbles = πr2h
= 3.14 × 3.5 × 3.5 × 5.6 = 215.6 cm3
Hence the total numbers of marble required = = 150 marbles

Diameter of the well = 10 m
Radius of the well = 5 m
Height of the well = 14 m
Width of the embankment = 5 m
Therefore radius of the embankment = 5 + 5 = 10 m
Let h be the height of the embankment,
The volume of the embankment = volume of the well
π(R – r)2h = πr2h
(102 – 52) x h = 52 x 14
(100 – 25) x h = 25 x 14
The height of the embankment, h = 4.67 m
Q.32. In a corner of a rectangular field with dimensions 35 m × 22 m, a well with 14m inside diameters is dug 8 m deep. The earth dug out is spread evenly over the remaining part of the field. Find the rise in the level of the field.
Diameter of the well = 14 m
Radius of the well = 7 m
Height of the well = 8 m
Volume of the earth dug out of the well = πr2h
= 22/7 × 7 × 7 × 8 = 1,232 m3
Area on which earth dug out is spread = l × b - r2h
= 35 × 22 - 22/7 × 7 × 7
= 770 - 154 = 616 m
Level of the earth raised = 1232/616 = 2 m
So, the rise in the level of the field is 2 m.

Diameter of the copper wire = 6 mm = 0.6 cm
Radius of the copper wire = 0.3 cm
Length of the cylinder = 18 cm
Diameter of the cylinder = 49 cm
Radius of the cylinder =49/2 cm
Density of the copper = 8.8g
Number of the rotations on the cylinder = 18/0.6 = 30 cm
Base circumference of the cylinder = 2πr = = 154 cm
Length of the wire = 154 × 30 = 4620 cm
Volume of the wire = πr2h
= 22/7 × 0.3 × 0.3 × 4620 = 1306.8
Weight of the wire = volume × density
= 1306.8 × 8.8 = 11,499.84 gm
Q.34. A right triangle whose sides are 15 cm and 20 cm (Other than hypotenuse) , is made to revolve about its hypotenuse. Find the volume and surface area of the double cone so formed. (Choose value of π as found appropriate)
Let name the triangle, ABC
Sides of the triangle are 15 and 20 cm,
BD ⟘ AC.
In the given case BD is the radius of the double cone generated by triangle by revolving.
Now by Pythagoras theorem,
AC2 = AB2 + BC2
AC2 = (15)2 + (20)2
AC2 = 225 + 400
AC2 = 625 = (25)2
AC = 25 cm
Let AD be m cm;
∴ CD = (25 – m) cm
By using the Pythagoras theorem in ∆ABD and ∆CBD;
AD2 + BD2 = AB2
m2 + BD2 = 225
BD2 = 225 – m2 ……….(i)
BD2 + CD2 = BC2
BD2 + (25 – m)2 = (20)2
BD2 = (20)2 – (25 – m)2 …..(ii)
By putting both the equations (i) and (ii) together,
225 – m2 = (20)2 – (625 – m)2
225 – m2 = 400 – (625 + m2 – 50m) ……….by (a2 – b2)
225 – m2 = - 225 – m2 + 50m
225 – m2 + 225 + m2 = 50m
450 = 50m
m = 450/50 = 9 cm
BD2 = (15)2 – (9)2
BD2 = 225 – 81 = 144 cm
BD = 12 cm
Radius of the generated double cone = 12 cm
Volume of the cone generated = Volume of the upper cone + Volume of the lower cone
(AD + CD)
= 1200π cm3 = 3,771.42 cm3
Surface area of the double cone formed;
= L.S.A of upper cone + L.S.A of the lower cone
= π (BD) × (AB) + π (BD) × (BC)
= π × 12cm × 15 cm + π × 12 cm × 20 cm
= 420π cm2 = 1320 cm2
So, the volume is 1200π cm3 and surface area is 420π cm2, of the double cone so formed.
