**Answer**

(i) Radius (r) = 6 cm

Height (h) = 7 cm

Volume of the cone = 1/3 Ï€r

^{2}h

= (1/3 × 22/7 × 6 × 6 × 7) cm

^{3}

= 264 cm

^{3}

(ii) Radius (r) = 3.5 cm

Height (h) = 12 cm

Volume of the cone = 1/3 Ï€r

^{2}h

= (1/3 × 22/7 × 3.5 × 3.5 × 12) cm

2. Find the capacity in litres of a conical vessel with

(i) radius 7 cm, slant height 25 cm (ii) height 12 cm, slant height 13 cm

**Answer**

(i) Radius (r) = 7 cm

Slant height (l) = 25 cm

Let h be the height of the conical vessel.

∴ h = √l

^{2 }- r

^{2}

⇒ h = √25

^{2 }- 7

^{2}

⇒ h = √576

⇒ h = 24 cm

Volume of the cone = 1/3 Ï€r

^{2}h

= (1/3 × 22/7 × 7 × 7 × 24) cm

^{3}

= 1232 cm

^{3}

Capacity of the vessel = (1232/1000) l = 1.232 l

(i) Height (h) = 12 cm

Slant height (l) = 13 cm

Let r be the radius of the conical vessel.

∴ r = √l

^{2 }-

^{h}

^{2}

⇒ r = √13

^{2 }- 12

^{2}

⇒ r = √25

⇒ r = 5 cm

Volume of the cone = 1/3 Ï€r

^{2}h

= (1/3 × 22/7 × 5 × 5 × 12) cm

^{3}

= (2200/7) cm

Capacity of the vessel = (2200/7000) l = 11/35 l

3. The height of a cone is 15 cm. If its volume is 1570 cm

^{3}, find the radius of the base. (Use Ï€ = 3.14)

**Answer**

Height (h) = 15 cm

Volume = 1570 cm

^{3}

Let the radius of the base of cone be r cm

∴ Volume = 1570 cm

^{3}

⇒ 1/3 Ï€r

^{2}h = 1570

⇒ 13 × 3.14 × r

^{2 }× 15 = 1570

⇒ r

^{2 }= 1570/(3.14×5) = 100

⇒ r = 10

4. If the volume of a right circular cone of height 9 cm is 48Ï€ cm

^{3}, find the diameter of its base.

Volume = 48Ï€ cm

^{3}

Let the radius of the base of the cone be r cm

∴ Volume = 48Ï€ cm

^{3}

⇒ 1/3 Ï€r

^{2}h = 48Ï€

⇒ 13 × r

^{2 }× 9 = 48

⇒ 3r

^{2 }= 48

⇒ r

^{2 }= 48/3 = 16

⇒ r = 4

5. A conical pit of top diameter 3.5 m is 12 m deep. What is its capacity in kilolitres?

**Answer**

Diameter of the top of the conical pit = 3.5 m

Radius (r) = (3.5/2) m = 1.75 m

Depth of the pit (h) = 12 m

Volume = 1/3 Ï€r

= (13 × 22/7 × 1.75 × 1.75 × 12) m

^{3}

= 38.5 m

^{3}

1 m

^{3 }= 1 kilolitre

Capacity of pit = 38.5 kilolitres.

6. The volume of a right circular cone is 9856 cm

^{3}. If the diameter of the base is 28 cm, find

(i) height of the cone (ii) slant height of the cone

(iii) curved surface area of the cone

**Answer**

(i) Diameter of the base of the cone = 28 cm

Radius (r) = 28/2 cm = 14 cm

Let the height of the cone be h cm

Volume of the cone = 13Ï€r

^{2}h = 9856 cm

^{3}

⇒ 1/3 Ï€r

^{2}h = 9856

⇒ 1/3 × 22/7 × 14 × 14 × h = 9856

⇒ h = (9856×3)/(22/7 × 14 × 14)

⇒ h = 48 cm

(ii) Radius (r) = 14 m

Height (h) = 48 cm

Let l be the slant height of the cone

l

^{2}= h

^{2 }+ r

^{2}

⇒ l

^{2}= 48

^{2 }+ 14

^{2}

⇒ l

^{2}= 2304+196

⇒ l

^{2 }= 2500

⇒ â„“ = √2500 = 50 cm

(iii) Radius (r) = 14 m

Slant height (l) = 50 cm

Curved surface area = Ï€rl

Diameter of the base of the cone = 10.5 m

Radius (r) = 10.5/2 m = 5.25 m

Height of the cone = 3 m

Volume of the heap = 1/3 Ï€r

^{2}h

= (1/3 × 22/7 × 5.25 × 5.25 × 3) m

^{3}

= 86.625 m

^{3}

Also,

l

^{2}= h

^{2 }+ r

^{2}

⇒ l

^{2}= 3

^{2 }+ (5.25)

^{2}

⇒ l

^{2}= 9 + 27.5625

⇒ l

^{2 }= 36.5625

⇒ l = √36.5625 = 6.05 m

Area of canvas = Curve surface area

= Ï€rl = (22/7 × 5.25 × 6.05) m

^{2}

= 99.825 m

^{3}

= 34496/3 cm

^{3}

(ii) Diameter of the spherical ball = 0.21 m

Radius (r) = 0.21/2 m = 0.105 m

Amount of water displaced by the spherical ball = Volume

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}?

**Answer**

Diameter of the ball = 4.2 cm

Radius = (4.2/2) cm = 2.1 cm

Volume of the ball = 4/3 Ï€r

^{3}

= (4/3 × 22/7 × 2.1 × 2.1 × 2.1) cm

^{3}

= 38.808 cm

Density of the metal is 8.9g per cm3

Mass of the ball = (38.808 × 8.9) g = 345.3912 g

4. The diameter of the moon is approximately one-fourth of the diameter of the earth.What fraction of the volume of the earth is the volume of the moon?

**Answer**

Let the diameter of the moon be r

Radius of the moon = r/2

A/q,

Diameter of the earth = 4r

Radius(r) = 4r/2 = 2r

Volume of the moon = v = 4/3 Ï€(r/2)

^{3}

= 4/3 Ï€r

^{3 }× 1/8

⇒ 8v = 4/3 Ï€r

^{3 }--- (i)

Volume of the earth = r

^{3}= 4/3 Ï€(2r)

^{3}

= 4/3 Ï€r

^{3}× 8

⇒ V/8 = 4/3 Ï€r

^{3}--- (ii)

From (i) and (ii), we have

8v = V/8

⇒ v = 1/64 V

Thus, the volume of the moon is 1/64 of the volume of the earth.

5. How many litres of milk can a hemispherical bowl of diameter 10.5 cm hold?

**Answer**

Diameter of a hemispherical bowl = 10.5 cm

^{3}

= (2/3 × 22/7 × 5.25 × 5.25 × 5.25) cm

^{3}

= 303.1875 cm

^{3}

Litres of milk bowl can hold = (303.1875/1000) litres

= 0.3031875 litres (approx.)

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.

**Answer**

Internal radius = r = 1m

External radius = R = (1 + 0.1) cm = 1.01 cm

Volume of iron used = External volume – Internal volume

= 2/3 Ï€R

^{3 }- 2/3 Ï€r

^{3}

= 2/3 Ï€(R

^{3 }- r

^{3})

= 2/3 × 22/7 × [(1.01)

^{3}−(1)

^{3}] m

^{3}

= 44/21 × (1.030301 - 1) m
