**Question 1. What is the longest pole that can be put in a room of dimensions l = 10 cm, b = 10 cm and h = 5 cm? Solution: **The longest diagonal of a cuboid =

âˆ´ The length of the required pole (diagonal) =

**Question 2. Total surface area of a cube is 96 cm ^{2}. What is its volume? Solution:** Total surface area of the cube = 6l

âˆ´

Thus, the volume of the cube = l^{3} = 4^{3} = 64 cm^{3 }

**Question 3. The radius of a sphere doubled. What per cent of its volume is increased? Solution:** Original volume = (4/3)Ï€r

Increased volume = (4/3)Ï€(2r)^{3} = 32/3Ï€r^{3}

Increase in volume = 32/3Ï€r^{3} - 4/3Ï€r^{3} = 28/3Ï€r^{3}

âˆ´ Per cent increase in volume =

**Question 4. Write â€˜True or Falseâ€™ for the following statements: (i) A right circular cylinder just encloses a sphere of radius r as shown in the figure. The area of the sphere is equal to the curved surface area of the cylinder. Solution:** True.

âˆµ [Radius of the sphere] = [Radius of the cylinder] = r

âˆ´ Diameter of the sphere = 2r

â‡’ Height of the cylinder (h) = 2r

Now, surface area of the sphere = 4Ï€r^{2 }

And curved surface area of the cylinder = 2Ï€rh = 2Ï€r (2r) = 4Ï€r^{2}

**(ii) An edge of a cube measures â€˜râ€™ cm. If the largest possible right circular cone is cut out of this cube, then the volume of the cone (in cm ^{3}) is 1/6**Ï€r

âˆµ Height of the cone = r cm

âˆ´ Diameter of the base of the cone = r cm

â‡’ Radius of the base of the cone = (r/2) cm

Now volume of the cone

**Question 5. If the total surface area of a sphere is 154 cm ^{2}. Find its total volume. Solution:** Let â€˜râ€™ be radius of the sphere

âˆ´ Total S.A. = 4 Ï€ r

or

Now,

**Question 6. If the radius of a sphere is 3r then what is its volume? Solution:**
