# Frank Solutions for Chapter 25 Surface Area and Volume of Solids Class 9 Mathematics ICSE

**Exercise 25.1**

**1. The volume of a cube is 1331 cm ^{3}. Find its total surface area.**

**Answer**

Let the side of the cube = a cm

Hence,

a^{3 }= 1331 cm^{3}

Taking cube roots on both sides, we get,

a = 11 cm

Surface area of a cube = 6a^{2}

Surface area of a cube = 6×11^{2 }

Surface area of a cube = 6×121

We get,

Surface area of a cube = 726 cm^{2}

Therefore, the surface area of the cube is 726 cm^{2}

**2. The total surface area of a cube is 864 cm ^{2}. Find its volume.**

**Answer**

Let the side of the cube = a cm

Hence,

Total surface area of a cube = 6a^{2}

864 = 6a^{2} **…(Given)**

On further calculation, we get,

a^{2} = 864/6

⇒ a^{2} = 144

Taking square root on both sides, we get,

a = √144

⇒ a = 12 cm

Volume of a cube = a^{3}

Volume of a cube = 12^{3}

Volume of a cube = 1728 cm^{3}

Therefore, volume of the cube = 1728 cm^{3}

**3. The length, breadth and height of a rectangular solid are in the ratio 6: 4: 3. If the total surface area is 1728 cm ^{2}. Find its dimensions.**

**Answer**

Let a, b and c be the length, breadth and height of a rectangular solid respectively

Hence,

a: b: c = 6: 4: 3 **…(Given)**

Let the common multiple be x

Then,

a = 6x cm

b = 4x cm

c = 3x cm

The total surface area of the cuboid = 1728 cm^{2} …(Given)

2 (lb + bh + hl) = 1728

⇒ 2 (ab + bc + ca) = 1728

⇒ 2 [(6x. 4x) + (4x.3x) + (3x.6x)] = 1728

⇒ 2 [24x^{2} + 12x^{2} + 18x^{2}] = 1728

⇒ 24x^{2 }+ 12x^{2} + 18x^{2} = (1728/2)

⇒ 54x^{2} = 864

⇒ x^{2} = (864/54)

⇒ x^{2} = 16

⇒ x = 4

We get,

x = 4

Hence,

a = 6x = 6×4 = 24 cm

b = 4x = 4×4 = 16 cm

c = 3x = 3×4 = 12 cm

Therefore, the dimensions of the rectangular solid are 24 cm, 16 cm and 12 cm

**4. Find the volume of a cube whose diagonal is √48 cm.**

**Answer**

Given

Diagonal of a cube = √48 cm

We know that,

Diagonal of a cube = √3 x l

Hence,

√3 ×l = √48

⇒ l = (√48/√3)

⇒ l = (√48/3)

We get,

l = √16

⇒ l = 4 cm

Therefore, side (l) = 4 cm

Now,

Volume of cube = l^{3}

Volume of cube = l×l×l

Volume of cube = 4× 4×4

Volume of cube = 64 cm^{3}

Hence, volume of cube = 64 cm^{3}

**5. The length and breadth of a cuboid are 20 cm and 15 cm respectively. If its volume is 2400 cm ^{3}, find its height.**

**Answer**

Given

Volume of a cuboid = 2400 cm^{3}

Length of a cuboid = 20 cm

Breadth of a cuboid = 15 cm

We know,

Volume of a cuboid = l×b×h

2400 = 20×15×h

⇒ 2400 = 300h

⇒ h = 2400/300

We get,

h = 8 cm

Therefore, height of a cuboid is 8 cm

**6. A cylinder has a diameter 20 cm. The area of the curved surface is 1100 cm ^{2}. Find the height and volume of the cylinder.**

**Answer**

Given

Diameter of cylinder = 20 cm

Hence,

Radius (r) = (20/2) = 10 cm

Let ‘h’ be the height of the cylinder

Given

Area of curved surface = 1100 cm^{2}

i.e, L.S.A of cylinder = 1100 cm^{2}

2×Ï€×r×h = 1100 **[Since L.S.A of cylinder = 2×Ï€×r×h]**

⇒ 2×(22/7)×10×h = 1100

⇒(440/7) h = 1100

⇒ h = (1100×7)/440

⇒ h = (70/4)

We get,

h = 17.5 cm

Therefore, volume of cylinder = Ï€ × r^{2} ×h

= (22/7)× 10^{2} ×17.5

On calculation, we get,

= 5500 cm^{3}

**7. Find the volume of a cylinder which has a base diameter 14 cm and height 24 cm.**

**Answer**

Given

Diameter of base = 14 cm

Hence,

Radius (r) = 7 cm

Height (h) = 24 cm

Volume of cylinder = Ï€ ×r^{2} ×h

Volume of cylinder = (22/7) ×7^{2} ×24

On calculation, we get,

Volume of cylinder = 3696 cm^{3}

Therefore, volume of a cylinder is 3696 cm^{3}

**8. The total surface area of a cylinder is 264 m ^{2}. Find its volume if its height is 5 more than its radius.**

**Answer**

Let r be the radius of the cylinder

Then,

Height (h) = 5 + r **…(i)**

Given, total surface area of cylinder = 264 m^{2}

(2× Ï€× r× h) + (2 ×Ï€×r^{2}) = 264

⇒ 2 Ï€r (h + r) = 264

Substituting the value of h, we get,

2 Ï€r (5 + r + r) = 264

⇒ r (5 + 2r) = (264/2 Ï€)

On calculation, we get,

5r + 2r^{2} = 42

⇒ 2r^{2} + 5r – 42 = 0

⇒ 2r^{2} + 12r – 7r – 42 = 0

⇒ 2r (r + 6) – 7 (r + 6) = 0

⇒ (2r – 7) (r + 6) = 0

i.e,

(2r – 7) = 0

⇒ 2r = 7

⇒ r = (7/2)

⇒ r = 3.5 m

or

(r + 6) = 0

r = –6

Radius of a cylinder cannot be negative,

Hence, we take the value of r = 3.5 m

Therefore,

Height (h) = 5 + 3.5

Height (h) = 8.5 m

Volume of a cylinder = Ï€ × r^{2} ×h

Volume of a cylinder = (22/7)×(3.5)^{2}×8.5

We get,

Volume of a cylinder = 327. 25 m^{3 }

**9. The curved surface area of a cylinder is 198 cm ^{2}and its base has diameter 21 cm. Find the height and the volume of the cylinder.**

**Answer**

Given

L.S.A. of cylinder = 198 cm^{2}

Diameter of base = 21 cm

Hence,

Radius (r) = 10.5 cm

Let h be the height of the cylinder

L.S.A. of cylinder = 198 cm^{2}

2× Ï€ ×r× h = 198 **(∵ L.S.A. of cylinder = 2 ×Ï€ ×r ×h)**

⇒ 2×(22/7) ×10.5×h = 198

On further calculation, we get,

(462/7) h = 198

⇒ h = (198 ×7)/462

⇒ h = (1386/462)

We get,

h = 3 cm

Volume of a cylinder = Ï€×r^{2} ×h

Volume of a cylinder = (22/7)×(10.5)^{2}× 3

We get,

Volume of a cylinder = 1039.5 cm^{3}

**10. The volume of a solid cylinder is 7700 cm ^{3}. Find its height and total surface area if the diameter of its base is 35 cm.**

**Answer**

Given

Volume of cylinder = 7700 cm^{3}

Diameter of base = 35 cm

Hence,

Radius (r) = 17.5 cm

Let h be the height of the cylinder

Volume of cylinder = 7700

Ï€× r^{2} ×h = 7700 **(∵ volume of cylinder = Ï€ ×r**^{2}** ×h)**

⇒ (22/7) ×(17.5)^{2} ×h = 7700

On calculating, we get,

962.5h = 7700

⇒ h = (7700/962.5)× (10/10)

⇒ h = (77000/9625)

We get,

h = 8 cm

Now,

T.S.A. of cylinder = (2× Ï€ ×r ×h) + (2× Ï€× r^{2})

T.S.A. of cylinder = {2× (22/7)×17.5×8} + {2×(22/7)×(17.5)^{2}}

T.S.A. of cylinder = 880 + 1925

We get,

T.S.A. of cylinder = 2805 cm^{2}

**11. The figure represents the cross section of a swimming pool 10m broad, 2 m deep at one end, 3 m deep at the other end. Calculate the volume of water it will hold when full, given that its length is 40 m.**

**Answer**

The given figure is a trapezium, since two opposite sides are parallel

Length of a pool = 40 m

Height of the trapezium = 10 m

Area of cross section = Area of trapezium

Area of cross section = (1/2) ×(sum of parallel sides) x height

Area of cross section = (1/2)×(2 + 3)×10

Area of cross section = 50/2

We get,

Area of cross section = 25 m^{2}

Volume of the pool = Area of cross section x length

Volume of the pool = 25×40

Volume of the pool = 1000 m^{3}

Therefore, the volume of the pool is 1000 m^{3}

**12. The given figure is a cross section of a victory stand used in sports. All measurements are in centimeters. Assume all angles in the figure are right angles. If the width of the stand is 60 cm, find**

**(a) The space it occupies in cm ^{3}**

**(b) The total surface area in m ^{2}**

**Answer**

**(a)**To find the volume, first find the area of the figure

We divide the figure into 3 different rectangles to find the area

Rectangle 1 (left):

Length = 50 cm

Width = 40 cm

Area = Length ×width

Area = 50 x 40

We get,

Area = 2000 cm^{2}

**Rectangle 2 (middle):**

Length = (60 + 30) cm

= 90 cm

Width = 40 cm

Area = Length×width

Area = 90× 40

We get,

Area = 3600 cm^{2}

Rectangle 3 (right):

Length = 60 cm

Width = 40 cm

Area = Length × width

Area = 60 × 40

Area = 2400 cm^{2}

Total area = 2000 + 3600 + 2400

Total area = 8000 cm^{2}

Volume = Total area × length

Volume = 8000 × 60

We get,

Volume = 480000 cm^{3}

**(b)**Total surface area = 2×Area of cross section + Area of bottom face + Area of left face + Area of right face + Area of top face

Area of cross-section = 8000 cm^{2} **[from (a)]**

Width of a stand = 60 cm **[Given]**

Area of bottom face = 130×60

= 7800 cm^{2}

Area of the left face = 40×60 + 50×60 + 50×60

= 8400 cm^{2}

Area of right face = 60×60 + 40×60 + 30×60

= 7800 cm^{2}

Area of the top face = 40×60

= 2400 cm^{2}

Total surface area = 2×8000 + 7800 + 8400 + 7800 + 2400

We get,

= 42400 cm^{2}

= 4.24 m^{2}

Hence, the total surface area is 4.24 m^{2}

**13. Water flows at the rate of 1.5 meters per second through a pipe with area of cross section 2.5 cm ^{2}into a rectangular water tank of length 90 cm and breadth 50 cm. Find the rise in water level in the tank after 4 minutes.**

**Answer**

Given

Rate of flow of water = 1.5 m/s

= 150 cm/s

Rate of volume of water flown = Rate of flow ×cross section area

= 150×2.5

We get,

= 375 cm^{3}/s

Total volume of water flow = Rate of volume of water flown x Time

= 375×(4×60 seconds)

= 90000 cm^{3}

Volume of water flown = volume of water in the tank

90000 = l×b ×h

⇒ 90000 = 90×50 ×h

⇒ h = 90000/4500

We get,

h = 20 cm

Therefore, the rise in the level of water is 20 cm

**14. A swimming pool is 50 m long and 15 m wide. Its shallow and deep ends are 1.5 m and 4.5 m respectively. If the bottom of the pool slopes uniformly, find the amount of water in kilolitres required to fill the pool (1 m ^{3}= 1000 litres).**

**Answer**

= (1/2)×(sum of parallel sides) x height

= (1/2) × (1.5 + 4.5) × 50

= (1/2) × 6 × 50

We get,

= 150 m^{2}

Hence,

Volume of the pool = area of cross section × height

= 150 × 15

We get,

= 2250 m^{3}

Since 1 m^{3} = 1 kilolitre

Therefore, volume of the pool is 2250 kilolitres

**15.** **Rain falls on a rectangular roof 28 m by 9 m and the water flows into a tank of dimensions 90 m by 70 cm by 84 cm. How much rainfall will fill the tank completely?**

**Answer**

Dimensions of the tank:

Length = 90 m

Breadth = 70 cm

= 0.7 m

Height = 84 cm

= 0.84 m

Amount of rainfall = Volume of tank/Area of roof

= (90 × 0.7 × 0.84)/(28 × 9)

On further calculation, we get,

= (52.92/252)

= 0.21 m

= 21 cm

Therefore, amount of rainfall is 21 cm
