## Karnataka SSLC Class 10 Maths Solutions Chapter 15 Surface Areas and Volumes Exercise 15.3

(Take π \(=\frac{22}{7}\) unless stated otherwise)

Question 1.

A metallic sphere of radius 4.2 cm is melted and recast into the shape of a cylinder of radius 6 cm. Find the height of the cylinder.

Solution:

Let the height of cylinder be ‘h’ cm.

Radius of cylinder, r = 6 cm.

i) Volume of metallic sphere, V = \(\frac{4}{3} \pi r^{3}\)

ii) Volume of Cylinder, V = \(\pi r^{2} h\)

\(\frac{22}{7}\) × 36 × h = 310.46

∴ Height of cylinder is 2.74 cm.

Question 2.

Metallic spheres of radii 6 cm, 8 cm and 10 cm, respectively, are melted to form a single solid sphere. Find the radius of the resulting sphere.

Solution:

Let the radius of the resulting sphere be ‘r’ cm.

(i) Volume of 3 spheres having radii 8 cm and 10 cm.

(i) Volume of the resulting Sphere, V

∴ Volume of the resulting sphere = Volume of three spheres

∴ Radius of the resulting sphere is 12 cm.

Question 3.

A 20 m deep well with a diameter 7 m is dug and the earth from digging is evenly spread out to form a platform 22 m by 14 m. Find the height of the platform.

Solution:

Radius of well, ‘r’ = 3.5 m.

Height of well, h = 20 m.

(i) Volume of soil dug out of well, V = \(\pi r^{2} h\) (∵ cylinder sphere)

= \(\frac{22}{7} \times(3.5)^{2} \times 20\)

= \(=\frac{22}{7} \times \frac{35}{10} \times \frac{35}{10} \times 20\)

= 770m^{3}

(ii) Length of platform, l = 22 m.

Breadth, b = 14 m.

Height, h =?

Volume of Platform, V= l × b × h (∵ Cuboid)

= 22 × 14 × h

∴ Volume of Platform = Volume of soil dug out of well.

∴ Height of platform is 2.5 m

Question 4.

A well of diameter 3 m is dug 14 m deep. The earth taken out of it has been spread evenly all around it in the shape of a circular ring of width 4 m to form an embankment. Find the height of the embankment.

Solution:

Let the height of the embankment be ‘h’ m.

Dimeter of well, d = 3 m.

Radius of well, r =1.5 m.

Height of well, h = 14 m.

Volume of an embankment = Volume of soil dug from well.

∴ Height of embankment = 1.125 m.

Question 5.

A container shaped like a right cylinder diameter 12height 15 cm is full of ice cream. The ice cream is to be filled into cones of height 12 cm and diameter 6 cm, having a hemispherical shape on the top. Find the number of such cones cones which can be filled with ice cream.

Solution:

Diameter of right circular cylinder is 12 cm ➝ r = 6 cm.

Height: 15 cm. ➝ h = 15 cm.

Diameter of Cone, 6 cm. ➝ r = 3 cm.

Height 12 cm. ➝ h = 12 cm.

(i) Volume of the ice cream which has cone-shaped and hemisphere.

(ii) Volume of cylindrical vessel, V = \(\pi r^{2} h\)

Let number of cones be ‘n’,

n × 54π = π × 36 × 15

54n = 36 × 15

\(n=\frac{36 \times 15}{54}=\frac{540}{54}\)

∴ n = 10

Ice cream can be filled in 10 cones.

Question 6.

How many silver coins, 1.75 cm. in diameter and of thickness 2 mm, must be melted to form a cuboid of dimensions 5.5 cm × 10 cm × 3.5 cm?

Solution:

Diameter of the silver coins is 1.75 cm.

Thickness = 2 mm.

Measurement of cuboid: 5.5 × 10 × 3.5 cm.

∴ Let the required silver coins be ‘n’,

Volume of ‘n’ coins = Volume of cuboid

\(\pi r^{2} h\) = l × b × h

∴ n = 400

∴ 400 silver coins are required.

Question 7.

A cylindrical bucket, 32 cm high and with a radius of base 18 cm, is filled with sand. This bucket is emptied on the ground and a conical heap of sand is formed. If the height of the conical heap is 24 cm, find the radius and slant height of the heap.

Solution:

Height of cylindrical bucket, h = 32 cm.

Radius, r = 18 cm.

Height of conical heap of sand = 24 cm.

Radius, r =?

Slant height, l =?

Volume of the conical heap of sand = Volume of Cylinder.

Radius of Cone, r = 36 cm.

Slant height of cone, l = \(\sqrt{\mathrm{h}^{2}+\mathrm{r}^{2}}\)

∴ Radius of cone, r = 36 cm.

Slant height of cone, h = \(12 \sqrt{13}\) cm

Question 8.

Water in a canal, 6 m wide and 1.5 m deep, is flowing with a speed of 10 km/h. How much area will it irrigate in 30 minutes, if 8 cm of standing water is needed?

Solution:

Breadth of a canal, b = 6 m.

Height, h = 1.5 m

Speed of water =10 km/hr.

Quantity of water = 8 cm.

Quantity of water flowing in 30 minutes?

Volume of water flowing in 60 minutes,

= (10 × 1000) × 6 × 1.5 cm^{3}.

( ∵ Speed = 10 km/hr.; 10 × 1000 m/hr.)

Volume of water flowing in 30 minutes,

= \(10000 \times 9 \times \frac{30}{60} \mathrm{m}^{3}\)

∴ Let the area of land be ‘x’ sq.m.

x= 562500 sq.m.

Question 9.

A farmer connects a pipe of internal diameter 20 cm from a canal into a cylindrical tank in her field, which is 10 m in diameter and 2 m deep. If water flows through the pipe at the rate of 3 km/h, in how much time will the tank be filled?

Solution:

Internal diameter of a pipe = 20 cm.

Radius of pipe =10 cm. = \(\frac{1}{10} \mathrm{m}\)

Diameter of cylindrical tank = 10 m; r=5 m.

Depth of cylindrical tank = 2 m.

Speed of water is 3 km/hr.

Time required to fill the water tank =?

Speed of water = 3 km/hr.

= \(\frac{3000}{60}\) m/minute

= 50 m/min.

Let the time required to fill the tank be n’ minutes.

∴ Flowing water in ‘n’ minutes = Volume of the water tank

∴ n = 100 minutes

∴ Time required to fill the water tank = 100 minutes
