Exercise 16.3 Solutions
1. A bucket has top and bottom diameters of 40cm and 20 cm respectively. Find the volume of the bucket if its depth is 12 cm. Also, find the cost of tin sheet used for making the bucket at the rate of Rs 1.20 per dm^{2} . (Use Ï€ = 3.14)
Solution
Given diameter to top of bucket = 40cm
2. A frustum of a right circular cone has a diameter of base 20 cm, of top 12cm and height 3cm. Find the area of its whole surface and volume ?
Solution
Solution
Given slant height of cone (r) = 4 cm
Let radii of top and bottom circles be r_{1} and r_{2} .
Given perimeters of its ends as 18cm and 6cm
Given perimeters of its ends as 18cm and 6cm
4. The perimeters of the ends of a frustum of a right circular cone are 44 cm and 33cm. If the height of the frustum be 16 cm, find its volume, the slant surface and the total surface.
Solution
Given perimeters of ends of frustum right circular cone are 44cm and 33cm
Height of frustum cone = 16 cm
Perimeter = 2Ï€r
5. If the radii of circular ends of a conical bucket which is 45cm high be 28cm and 7cm. Find the capacity of the bucket ?
Solution
Given height of conical bucket = 45cm
Give radii of 2 circular ends of a conical bucket is 28cm and 7cm
6. The height of a cone is 20 cm. A small cone is cut off from the top by a plane parallel to the base. If its volumes be 1/25 of the volume of the original cone, determine at what height above base the section is made.
Solution
7. If the radii of circular ends of a bucket 24cm high are 5cm and 15cm. Find surface area of bucket ?
Solution
Given height of a bucket (R) = 24cm
Radius of circular ends of bucket 5cm and 15cm
8. The radii of circular bases of a frustum of a right circular cone are 12 cm and 3 cm and height is 12 cm. Find the total surface area volume of frustum ?
Solution
Let slant height of frustum cone be 'I'
Given height of frustum cone 12 cm
Radii of a frustum cone are 12 cm and 23 cm
9. A tent consists of a frustum of a cone copped by a cone. If radii of ends of frustum be 13 m and 7m the height of frustum be 8m and slant height of thee conical cap bee 12m. Find canvas required for tent ?
Solution
Given height of frustum (h) = 8m
Radii of frustum cone are 13m and 7m
