11. A solid piece of iron in the form of a cuboid of dimensions (49 cm × 33 cm × 24 cm) is moulded to form a solid sphere. The radius of the sphere is

A. 19 cm

B. 21 cm

C. 23 cm

D. 25 cm

Solution

Given: Dimension of cuboid (49 cm × 33 cm × 24 cm)

Volume of cuboid is: length × breadth × height

Volume of Solid Sphere is 4/3 ×π × r3 (here r is radius of the sphere)

Let v1 be the volume of given cuboid.

∴ v1 = 49 cm × 33 cm × 24 cm = 38808 cm3

Let v2 be the volume of Solid sphere.

We know that when a object is moulded from one shape to other its volume does not change.

∴ v1 = v2

That is,

38808 = 4/3 × π × r3

r3 = 3/4π × 38808

⇒ r3 = 9261

∴ r = 21 cm

That is, radius of the solid sphere = 21 cm

A. 2.1

B. 4.2

C. 8.4

D. 1.05

Solution

Given: edge of the cube = 4.2 cm

A right circular cone is a Cone whose height is perpendicular to the diameter (radius) of the base circle.

In a cube, a largest right circular cone is formed when its base lies on one of the faces of the cube and its tip lies on the opposite face.

∴ Diameter of largest right circular Cone in cube = edge length of cube. 

∴ Diameter = 4.2 cm

⇒ Radius = diameter/2 = 4.2.2 = 2.1 cm

∴ Radius of the largest right circular cone is cube is 2.1 cm


13. A metallic solid sphere of radius 9 cm is melted to form a solid cylinder of radius 9 cm. The height of the cylinder is

A. 12 cm

B. 18 cm

C. 36 cm

D. 96 cm

Solution

Given:

Radius of the solid sphere = 9 cm

Radius of the cylinder = 9 cm

Volume of Solid Sphere is 4/3 × π × r3 (here r is radius of the sphere)

Volume of Solid Cylinder is : π × r2 × h (here r is radius and h is height of the cylinder) 

Let v1 be the volume of given Solid sphere.

∴ v1 = 4/3 × π × 93 cm3

Let v2 be the volume of Solid Cylinder.

∴ v2 = π × 92 × h

We know that when a object is moulded from one shape to other its volume does not change.

∴ v1 = v2

That is,

4/3 × π × 93 = π × 92 × h

⇒ h = (4/3 × π × 9 × 9 × 9)/(π × 9 × 9) = 4/3 × 9

= 12 cm

∴ h = 12 cm

That is Height of the Cylinder is 12 cm


14. A rectangular sheet of paper 40 cm × 22 cm, is rolled to form a hollow cylinder of height 40 cm. The radius of the cylinder (in cm) is

A. 3.5

B. 7

C. 80/7

D. 5

Solution

Given:

Dimensions of rectangular sheet = 40 cm × 22 cm

Height of the Hollow Cylinder : 40 cm

Area of the Rectangle is = length × breadth

Curved surface area of the Cylinder = 2πrh (where r and h area radius and height of cylinder respectively)

Let a1 be the area of Rectangle

a1 = 40 × 22 cm2

Let a2 be the curved surface area of cylinder

a2 = 2 × π × r × 40 cm2

We know that when the area of a surface doesn’t change even if its shape is changed.

a1 = a2

40 × 22 = 2 × π × r × 40

r = (40 × 22)/(2 × π × 40) = 11/π = (11 × 7)/22 = 7/2 = 3.5 cm

Radius of the Cylinder is 3.5 cm.


15. The number of solid sphere, each of diameter 6 cm, that can be made by melting a solid metal cylinder of height 45 cm and diameter 4 cm, is

B. 4

C. 5

D. 6

Solution

Given: Diameter of the Solid Sphere is 6 cm

Height of the Cylinder is 45 cm

Diameter of the Cylinder is 4 cm

Volume of Solid Cylinder is : π × r2 × h (here r is radius and h is height)

Volume of the Solid Sphere is : 4/3 × π × r3 (here r is the radius of the sphere)

Let v1 be the volume of given cylinder

v1 = π × 22 × 45 cm3 (4 cm is diameter, 2 cm is the radius of cylinder)

Let v2 be the volume of Solid sphere.

V2 = 4/3 × π × 33 cm3 (6 cm is the diameter, 3 cm is the radius of the sphere)

We know that when a object is moulded from one shape to other its volume does not change.

Let n be the number of solid Sphere of diameter 6 cm required.

v1 = n × v2 (volume of n Spheres = Volume of cylinder)

That is,

π × 22 × 45 = n × 4/3 × π × 33

⇒ n = (π × 2 × 2 × 45)/(4/3 × π × 3 × 3 × 3)

⇒ n = (2 × 2 × 45 × 3)/(4 × 3 × 3 × 3)

⇒ n = 45/9 = 5

That is 5 Solid Spheres of diameter 6 cm can be formed by the Solid cylinder of height 45 cm and diameter 4 cm.

A. 64 : 27

B. 16 : 9

C. 4 : 3

D. 163 : 93

Solution

Given:

Surface area ratio of two spheres is 16 : 9

Volume of the sphere is 4/3 × π × r3 (where r is radius of sphere)

Surface area of the sphere is 4 × π × r2 (Where r is radius of sphere)

Let S1 and S2 be two different spheres.

(Surface area of) S1 : (Surface area of) S2 = 16 : 9

4 × π × (r1)2 : 4 × π × (r2)2 = 16 : 9 (here r1 and r2 are the radii of S1 and S2 respectively)

(r1)2 : (r2)2 = 16 : 9

⇒ r1 : r2 = √16 : √9

⇒ r1 : r2 = 4 : 3

Now,

Let V1 and V2 be the volumes of the spheres S1 and S2 respectively.

∴ V1 : V2 = 4/3 × π × (r1)3 : 4/3 × π ×(r2)3 (here r1 and r2 are the radii of S1 and S2 respectively)

⇒ V1 : V2 = (r1)3 : (r2)3

⇒ V1 : V2 = (4)3 : (3)3

⇒ V1 : V2 = 64 : 27

∴ The ratios of the volumes is 64 : 27


17. If the surface area of a sphere is 616 cm2, its diameter (in cm) is

A. 7

B. 14

C. 28.

D. 56

Solution

Given: Surface area of a sphere is 616 cm2

Surface area of the sphere is : 4 × π × r2 (where r is radius of sphere)

∴ 4 × π × r2 = 616 cm2

⇒ r2 = 616/(4 × π) = 154/π = 49

⇒ r = √49 = 7 cm

∴ Diameter = 2 × r = 2 × 7 = 14 cm


18. If the radius of a sphere becomes 3 times then its volume will become

A. 3 times

B. 6 times

C. 9 times

D. 27 times

Solution

Let r1 be the initial radius of the sphere.

∴ r1 = r

Let r2 be the radius after increasing it 3 times the size of initial radius.

∴ r2 = 3r

Let V1 be the initial volume of the sphere

∴ V1 = 4/3 × π × (r1)3 = 4/3 × π × r3

Let V2 be the volume of the sphere after its radius is increased by 3 times.

∴ V2 = 4/3 × π × (r2)3 = 4/3 × π × (3r)3

⇒ V2 = 27 × 4/3 × π × r3

∴ If radius is increased by 3 times, its volume will be increased by 27 times.


19. If the height of a bucket in the shape of frustum of a cone is 16 cm and the diameter of its two circular ends are 40 cm and 16 cm then its slant height is

A. 20 cm

B. 12√5 cm

C. 8√13

D. 16 cm

Solution

Given: Height of the frustum of a cone : 16 cm

Diameters of the Circular ends: 40 cm and 16 cm.

Radius of the Circular ends: 40/2 = 20 cm and 16/2 = 8 cm

Here slant height h can be found by using Pythagoras theorem.

∴ s2 = h2 + (R - r)2 (here R is 20 cm and r is 8 cm)

⇒ s2 = 162 + (20 – 8)2

⇒ s2 = 162 + (12)2

⇒ s2 = 256 + 144

⇒ s2 = 400

⇒ s = √400 = 20

∴ Slant height of the frustum is 20 cm.


20. A sphere of diameter 18 cm is dropped into a cylinder vessel of diameter 36 cm, partly filled with water. If the sphere is completely submerged then the water level rises by

A. 3 cm

B. 4 cm

C. 5 cm

D. 6 cm

Solution

Given: Diameter of a sphere : 18 cm

⇒ radius = 18/2 = 9 cm

Diameter of Cylindrical vessel : 36 cm

⇒ radius = 36/2 = 18 cm

It is given that Sphere is dropped into the cylindrical vessel containing some water.

∴ Volume of sphere = Volume of water in Cylinder displaced (raised)

Let V1 be the volume of the sphere

∴ V1 = 4/3 × π × (r1)3

⇒ V1 = 4/3 × π × 93

Let V2 be the volume of the water displaced in the cylindrical vessel

∴ V2 = π × (r2)2 × h (here r2 is the radius of the cylinder and h is the level of water raised in the vessel after dropping the sphere into the cylindrical vessel)

V2 = π × 182 × h

Since V1 = V2

4/3 × π × 93 = π × 182 × h

⇒ h = (4/3 × π × 9 × 9 × 9)/(π × 18 × 18)

⇒ h = (4 × 9 × 9 × 9)/(3 × 18 × 18) = 3 cm

∴ The water level rises by 3 cm when the dropped sphere is completely submerged in the cylindrical vessel.


21. A solid right circular cone is cut into two parts at the middle of its height by a plane parallel to its base. The ratio of the volume of the smaller cone to the whole cone is

A. 1 : 2

B. 1 : 4

C. 1 : 6

D. 1 : 8

Solution

Given: A solid right circular cone is cut into two parts at the middle of its height by a plane parallel to its base

Let ‘H’ be the height of the cone.

Let ‘R’ be the Radius of the complete cone.

Volume of a cone is given by 1/3πr2h

Here,

AB = BD = H/2

Let r be the radius of the smaller cone.

∴ In △ABC and △ADE

∠ABC = ∠ADE (90°)

∠CAB = ∠EAB (common)

∴ △ABC ~ △ADE (AA similarity criterion)

⇒ OA/OC = AB/CD (Corresponding sides are proportional)

⇒ H/(H/2) = R/r 

⇒ R = 2r

Volume of smaller cone = 1/3π(r)2 × h = 1/3π(BC)2 × AB = 1/3π(r)2 × H/2 = (π × r × H)/6 cm3

Volume of whole cone = 1/3π(r)2 × h = 1/3π(DE)2 × AD = 1/3π(2r)2 × H = 4/3πr2H cm3

∴ (Volume of smaller cone)/(Volume of whole cone) = {(π × r × H)/6}/(4/3.π × r × r × H) = 1/8

∴ The ratio of the volume of the smaller cone to the whole cone is 1 : 8


22. The radii of the circular ends of a bucket of height 40 cm are 24 cm and 15 cm. The slant height (in cm) of the bucket is

A. 41

B. 43

C. 49

D. 51

Solution

Bucket is in the shape of a frustum of a cone

Therefore,

Given: height of the frustum : 40 cm

Radius of the Circular ends : 24 cm and 15 cm

Here slant height h can be found by using Pythagoras theorem.

∴ s2 = h2 + (R – r)2 (here R is 20 cm and r is 8 cm)

⇒ s2 = 402 + (24 – 15)2

⇒ s2 = 402 + (9)2

⇒ s2 = 1600 + 81

⇒ s2 = 1681

⇒ s = √1681 = 41

∴ Slant height of the Frustum is 41 cm


23. A solid is hemispherical at the bottom and conical (of same radius) above it. If the surface areas of the two parts area equal then the ratio of its radius and the slant the height of the conical part is

A. 1 : 2

B. 2 : 1

C. 1 : 4

D. 4 : 1

Solution

Given:

Bottom of a solid is hemispherical and conical above it, both have same radius

And same surface areas.

∴ CSA of hemisphere = CSA of Cone

⇒ 2 × π × r2 = πrl (where r is the radius and l is the slant height)

⇒ (r × r)/(r × 1) = π/(2 × π)

⇒ r/1 = 1/2

∴ r : l = 1 : 2

That is ratio of radius and the slant height of the given solid is 1 : 2.


24. If the radius of the base of a right circular cylinder is halved, keeping the height the same. Then the ratio of the volume of the cylinder thus obtained to the volume of original is

A. 1 : 2

B. 2 : 1

C 1 : 4

D. 4 : 1

Solution

Given : radius of the base of a right circular cylinder is halved, keeping the height the same.

Let initial radius Circular Cylinder be ‘r’.

∴ Radius of the Cylinder after its radius is halved is ‘r/2’

Let ‘h’ be the height of the both the cylinders.

Let V1 be the volume of the initial Cylinder.

Let V2 be the volume of the cylinder after the initial Cylinders base radius is halved.

Volume of the Cylinder is given by : πr2h

∴ V1 : V2 = (πr1)2h: π(r2)2h

∴ V1: V2 = π(r)2h : π(r/2)2h

⇒ V1 : V2 = 1 : 1/4

⇒ V1 : V2 = 4 : 1

Thus, ratio of the volume of the cylinder thus obtained to the volume of original is 4 : 1.


25. A cubical ice-cream brick of edge 22 cm is to be distributed among some children by filled ice-cream cones of radius 2 cm and height 7 cm upto its brim. How many children will get the ice-cream cones ?

Let ‘n’ be the number of students who get ice-cream cones.

Let V1 be the volumes of the Cubical ice-cream brick.

Volume of Cube is given by a3 : (where a is the edge length)

∴ V1 = a3 = 223

Let V2 be the Volume of the Ice-cream Cone.

Volume of cone is given by: 1/3 × π × r2 × h (where r is the radius of the base and h is the edge height of the cone)

∴  V2 = 1/3 × π × r2 × h = 1/3 × π × 22 × 7

Here,

V1 = n × V2

∴ 223 = n × 1/3 × π × 22 × 7

⇒ n = (22 × 22 × 22 × 3)/(π × 2 × 2 × 7)

⇒ n = (22 × 22 × 22 × 3 × 7)/(22 × 2 × 2 × 7)

⇒ n = 363

∴ 363 Children can get ice cream cones.

A wall of dimension (22.5 cm × 11.25 cm × 8.75 cm).

1/8 space is covered by the mortar.

Here 1/8 volume of the wall is covered by mortar, ∴ 1 – 1/8 = 7/8

Volume of the wall is covered by bricks.

Volume of the cuboid is given by: lbh (here l, b, h are length, breadth, height respectively).

Let V1 be the volume of the wall.

∴ V1 = l × b × h = 270 × 300 × 350

⇒ V1 = 270 × 300 × 350 = 28350000 cm2

Let V2 be the volume of the brick.

∴ V2 = l × b × h = 22.5 × 11.25 × 8.75

⇒ V2 = 22.5 × 11.25 × 8.75 = 70875/32 cm2

Let ‘n’ be the number of bricks required to occupy 7/8 volume of the wall.

∴ n × 70875/32 = 28350000 × 7/8

⇒ n = 28350000 × 7/8 × 32/70875 = 11200

∴ n = 11200

That is 11200 bricks required to occupy 7/8 volume of the wall.

⇒ r3 = (3 × π × 16)/(π × 4 × 12) = (π × 16)/(π × 4 × 4) = 1 cm 

∴ Diameter of the sphere is 2 × r = 2 × 1 = 2 cm

⇒ V = π/3 × 35 × (222 + 122 + 22 × 12) (diameters are 44 and 24 cm, ∴ their radii are 22 cm and 12 cm respectively)

⇒ V = π/3 × 35 × (484 + 144 + 264) = π/3 × 35 × (892)

⇒ V = π/3 × 35 × (892) = 32706.6 cm3 = 32.7 litres (∵ 1000 cm3 = 1 litre)

∴ The capacity of the bucket is 32 : 7 litres

4/3 × π × (r1)3 : 4/3 × π × (r2)3 = 64.27 (here r1 and r2 are the radii of S1 and S2 respectively)

⇒ (r1)3 : (r2)3 = 64 : 27

⇒ r1 : r2 = 4 : 3

Now,

Let SA1 and SA2  be the surface areas of the spheres S1 and S2 respectively.

∴ SA1 : SA2 = 4 × π × (r1)2 : 4 × π × (r2)2 (here r1 and r2 are the radii of S1 and S2 respectively)

⇒ SA1 : SA2 = (r1)2 : (r2)2

Let V2 be the volume of the cube.

∴ V1 = (22)3 = 10648 cm3

Let ‘n’ be the number of sphere required to fill the 7/8 space of the cube.

∴ n × V1 = V2 × 7/8

⇒ n × 11/168 = 10648 × 7/8

⇒ n × 11/168 = 9317

⇒ n = 9317 × 168/11 = 142296

Volume of spherical shell is: 4/3 × π × [(r1)3 – (r2)3] (here r1 and r2 are external and internal radii respectively)

Let v1 be the volume of given Spherical shell.

∴ v1 = 4/3 × π × [(8/2)3 – (4/2)3] = 4/3 × π × [(4)3 – (2)3] = 4/3 × π × [64 – 8] = 4/3 × π × 56 cm3

Volume of the cone is given by: 1/3 × π × r2 × h

Let v2 be the volume of cone.

∴ V2 = 1/3 × π × (8/2)2 × h = 1/3 × π × 16 × h cm3

We know that when a object is moulded from one shape to other its volume does not change.

∴ v1 = v2

That is,

4/3 × π × 56 = 1/3 × π × 16 × h

⇒ h = (4/3 × π × 56)/(1/3 × π × 16)

⇒ h = (4 × 56)/16 = 14

∴ h = 14 cm

That is, height of the cone = 14 cm

Let V2 be the Cylindrical part of the capsule

∴ V1 = 4/3πr3 = 4/3π(0.25)3 = (0.0625)/3.π cm3

∴ Volume of the capsule = V1 + 2V2 = 0.09375π + 2 × 0.0625/3.π

= 0.3599 ≈ 0.36 cm3

∴ Volume of the capsule is 0.36 cm3.

∴ 6a2 = 864

⇒ a2 = 864/6 = 144

⇒ a = √144

⇒ a = 12 cm

∴ Edge length of the cube is 12 cm.

Volume of a cube is given by : a3 (here ‘a’ is the edge length)

Let ‘V’ be the volume of the given cube.

∴ Volume of a Brick and wall is given by: l × b × h (here l, b, h are the length, breadth, height of the wall and brick)

Let V1 be the volume of the wall.

∴ V1 = l × b × h = 800 × 600 × 22.5 (∵ 8 m = 800 cm and 6 m = 600 cm)

⇒ V1 = 10800000 cm3

Let V2 be the volume of a Brick.

∴ V2 = l × b × h = 25 × 11.25 × 6

⇒ V2 = 1687.5 cm3

Let ‘n’ be the number of Bricks required to build the wall.

∴ V1 = n × V2

We know that Rectangular tank is in the shape of a cuboid.

And also area of the base of a cuboid is given by: l × b (here l and b are length and breadth respectively)

∴ l × b = 6500 cm2 …(i)

Volume of a cuboid is given by: l × b × h (here l, b, h are length, breadth, height respectively)

∴ l × b × h = 2.6 m3 = 2.6 × 1000000 cm3 = 2600000 cm3 ...(ii)

From (i) and (ii)

6500 × h = 2600000

H = 2600000/6500 = 400 cm = 400/100 m = 4 m

Let breadth = x

∴ Height = 5x

⇒ Length = 8 × (5x) = 40x

Volume of a cuboid is given by: l × b × h (here l, b, h are length, breadth, height respectively)

∴ l × b × h = 12.8

⇒ x × 5x × 40x = 12.8

⇒ 200x3 = 12.8

⇒ x3 = 12.8/200 m3 = 8/125

∴ x = 0.4 m = 0.4 × 100 = 40 m

h × l = z – 3

Volume of the cuboid is: l × b × h

Multiply eq’s -1, -2, -3

That is,

l × b × b × h × l × h = x × y × x = l2 × b2 × h2

⇒ l2 × b2 × h2 = xyz

⇒ (l × b × h)2 = xyz

⇒ (V)2 = xyz (∵ Volume of the cuboid is l × b × h)

Solution

Given: Sum of length, breadth and height of a cuboid is 19 cm.

Length of diagonal is 5√5 cm.

Let l, b, h be the length, breadth, height of the cuboid respectively.

∴ l + b + h = 19 cm -1

Length of a diagonal in a cuboid is given by : √(l2 + b2 + h2)

∴ √(l2 + b2 + h2) = 5√5 cm ⇒ (l2 + b2 + h2) = (5√5)2 = 125 cm2 – 2

Surface area of Cuboid is: 2(lb + bh + hl)

On squaring eq-1 on both sides

We get

(l + b + h)2 = 192

⇒ l2 + b2 + h2 + 2(lb + bh + hl) = 361 cm2

⇒ 125 + 2(lb + bh + hl) = 361 (from eq – 2)

⇒ 2(lb + bh + hl) = 361 – 125 = 236 cm2

∴ 2(lb + bh + hl) = 236 cm2

That is, Surface area of the given Cuboid is 236 cm2

Given: Edge of a cube is increased by 50%

Let ’a’ be the Edge of the cube.

Area of the cube is: 6l2 (where ‘l’ is the edge of a cube)

Let A1 be the initial surface area of the cube.

∴ A1 = 6a2

Now,

50% of the edge is a × 50/100 = a/2

∴ Edge = a + a/2 after increasing edge by 50% 

That is edge of the cube after increasing it by 50% is 3a/2

Let A2 be the surface area of the cube after increasing the edge by 50%

∴ A2 = 6 × (3a/2)2 = 9/4 × 6a2

Here increase in area = A2 – A1

⇒ increase in area = 9/4 × 6a2 – 6a2 = 5/4 × 6a2

Now, increase in percentage is:

Increase in % = (5/4 × 6a × a)/(6a × a) × 100

= 5/4 × 100

= 125%

∴ If each edge of a cube is increased by 50%, then the percentage increase in the surface area is 125%.

Let V be the volume of the water on the land.

The volume of the water on the land is : area (of land) × height of the water on the land.

∴ V = Area(of land) × height

⇒ V = 20000 × 5/100 (∵ 1 cm = 1/100 m)

⇒ V = 1000 m3

∴ The volume of the water that falls o 2 hectares of ground, is: 1000 m3

Solution

Given:

Area of the base of a right circular cone is 154 cm2.

Height of the cone is 14 cm.

Curved surface area of a cone is : πrl (here r and l are radius and slant height respectively)

Area of the base is given by : πr2

∴ π × r2 = 154

⇒ r2 = 154/π = 49

⇒ r = √49 = 7 cm

∴ radius of the base of the cone is 7 cm

Now,

l = √(r2 + h2)

∴ πrl = πr√(r2 + h2)

Let S be the CSA of the cone.

∴ S = πr√(r2 + h2)

⇒ S = π × (7) × √(7)2 + (14)2

⇒ S = π × (7) × √(49 + 196) = π × (7) × √(245)

⇒ S = π × (7) × 7√5 = 22/7 × 7√5 = 154√5

Solution

Given: Radius of the base and the height of a cone is increased by 20%

The volume of the cone is : 1/3πr2h

New radius = r + 20/100.r + 120/100.r = 6/5.r

Similarly, new radius = 6/5.h

New volume = 1/3 × π × (6/5r)2 × (6/6.h) = 216/125 × 1/3πr2h

Increase in volume = 216/125 × 1/3πr2h – 1/3πr2h = 91/125 × 1/3πr2h

∴ Increase in % = ((91/125 × 1/3πr2h)/(1/3πr2h) × 100)% = 72.8%

∴ Volume will be increased by 72.8%.

Let V2 be the volume of the cone.

∴ V2 = 1/3π(r2)2h2

∴ V1 : V2 = π(r1)2h1 : 1/3π(r2)2h2

⇒ V1 : V2 = π × (3)2 × 2 : 1/3 × π × (4)2 × 3

⇒ V1 : V2 = 18π : 1/3 × 48π = 18 : 16 = 9 : 8

Let V2 be the volume of the cone

∴ V2 = 1/3 × π × r2 × h

∴ V2 = 1/3 × π × (r)2 × (6) = 2πr2

Here, Solid Cylinder is melted and made into a Solid cone.

∴ V1 : V2

⇒ 128π = 2πr2

⇒ r2 = 346.5/π = 441/4

⇒ r = √(441/4) = 21/2

⇒ l = √(h2 + r2) (here l is the slant height and h, r are height and radius respectively of cone)

⇒ l = √(142 + (21/2)2 = √(196 + 441/4) = √1225/4 = 35/2

∴ S = πrl = π × 21/2 × 35/2 = (33 × 35)/2

Assertion (A) is false and Reason (R) is true.

Solution

Assertion is wrong and Reason is correct.

Explanation:

Assertion (A):

Given: A hemisphere of radius 7 cm.

Total surface area of the hemisphere is: 3πr2

Let S be the TSA of the hemisphere.

∴ S = 3πr2 = 3π(7)2

∴ S = 462 cm2

The total cost to pain it: 462 × 5 = Rs 2310

Reason (R):

The total surface area of a hemisphere is 3πr2.

∴ Assertion is wrong and Reason is correct.

Assertion (A) is true and Reason (R) is false.

Assertion (A) is false and Reason (R) is true.

Solution

Assertion is correct and Reason is correct explanation of the given assertion.

Explanation:

Assertion (A):

Given: A coin which is 1.75 cm in diameter and 2 mm thick.

A cuboid with dimensions (10 cm × 5.5 cm × 3.5 cm)

A coin is in the form of a cylinder.

Volume of the Cylinder is given by: πr2h

Let V1 be the volume of the coin.

∴ V1 = πr2h

⇒ V1 = π × (1.75/2)2 × 2/10 (here, 1.75 is the diameter, ∴ radius = 1.75/2, and 1 mm = 1/10 cm)

⇒ V1 = π × (0.875)2 × 0.2 = 77/160 cm2

Volume of a cuboid is given by: l × b × h

Let V2 be the volume of the cuboid.

∴ V2 = l × b × h

⇒ V2 = 10 × 5.5 × 3.5 = 192.5 cm2

Let ‘n’ ne the number of coin melted.

∴ n × V1 = V2

⇒ n × 77/160 = 192.5

⇒ n = 192.5 × 160/77 = 400

∴ n = 400

That is 400 coin when melted can be moulded into a cuboid of given dimensions.

Reason(R):

Volume of a cylinder of base radius r and height h is given by V = (πr2h) cubic units. And, area of a cuboid = (l × b × h) cubic units.

∴ Assertion is correct and Reason is correct explanation of the given assertion.

Solution

Assertion is wrong and Reason is Wrong.

Explanation:

Assertion (A):

Given: Volumes of two sphere are in the ratio 27 : 8.

Volume of the sphere is given by: 4/3πr3

Let V1 be the volume of the first sphere.

Let V2 be the volume of the first sphere.

∴ V1 : V2 = 4/3π(r1)3 : 4/3π(r2)3

⇒ 27 : 8 = (r1)3 : (r2)3

⇒ r1 : r2 = 3 : 2

Surface area of the sphere is given by: 4πr2

Let S1 be the Surface area of the sphere.

Let S2 be the Surface area of the sphere.

∴ S1 : S2 = 4π(r1)2 : 4π(r2)2

 ⇒ S1 : S2 = (r1)2 : (r2)2

⇒ S1 : S2 = (3)2 : (2)2

⇒ S1 : S2 = 9 : 4

Reason (R):

Volume of a sphere = 4/3πr3.

Surface area of a sphere = 4πR2.

Assertion is wrong and Reason is Wrong.

Solution

Assertion is correct and Reason is Wrong.

Explanation:

Assertion (A):

Given: A cone of radius 3 cm and height 4 cm.

CSA of the cone is given by: πrl (here r is radius and l is slant height)

l = √(h2 + r2)

Let S be the CSA of the cone

∴ S = πrl = π × r × √(h2 + r2)

⇒ S = π × 4 × √(42 + 32) = π × 3 × √(16 + 9) = π × 3 × √(25) = π × 3 × 5 = 15π

∴ S = 15π

Reason (R):

Volume of a cone is: 1/3πr2h

∴ Assertion is correct and Reason is Wrong.


Formative Assessment (unit Test)

1. Find the number of solid sphere, each of diameter 6 cm, that could be moulded to

Form a solid metallic cylinder of height 45 cm and diameter 4 cm.

Solution

Given: Diameter of each solid sphere = 6 cm

∴ Radius of each sphere = 6/2 = rs = 3 cm

Diameter of cylinder = 4 cm

∴ Radius of cylinder = 4/2 = rc = 2 cm

Height of cylinder = h = 45 cm

Formula: Volume of sphere = (4/3) × π × rs3

Volume of cylinder = π × rc2 × h

Spheres are moulded to form cylinder which means the volume remains the same

Let ‘n’ be the number of spheres required

i.e., volume of n spheres = volume of cylinder

∴ n × (4/3) × π × 33 = π × 22 × 45

n × 4 × 27 = 4 × 3 × 45

n = 45/9 = 5

Number of solid spheres made = 5


2. Two right circular cylinder of equal volume have their height in the ratio 1 : 2. What is the ratio of their radii ?

Solution

Let the two cylinders be with volume V1 and V2 with their respective radii and height as r1, r2 and h1, h2

Now given ratio of their heights i.e., h1 : h2 = 1 : 2

∴ h1/h2 = 1/2

Volume of cylinder = πr2h

Given that volumes of both cylinder are equal i.e., V1 = V2.

∴ π × r12 × h1 = π × r22 × h2

h1/h2 = r22/r12

r22/r12 = 1/2

r2/r1 = 1/√2

r1/r2 = √2/1

Therefore the ratio of their radii is r1 : r2 = √2 : 1


3. A circus tent is cylindrical to a height of 4 m and conical above it. If its diameter is 105 m and its slant height is 40 m, find the total area of the canvas required.

Solution

Given: Diameter of base of cone and the cylinder = 105 m

∴ Radius of cylinder = rcl = 105/2 = 51 m

Radius of cone = rco = 105/2 = 51 m

Height of cylinder = h = 4 m

Slant height of cone = l = 40 m

Formula: Surface area of cylinder = 2πrclh + 2πrcl2

Surface area of cone = πrco2 + πrcol

Since we don’t require canvas for the top surface and bottom surface of cylinder and also for the base of cone we should subtract those areas from the surface area

Area of upper and lower surfaces of cylinder = 2πrcl2

∴ Area of canvas required for cylinder = 2πrclh + 2πrcl2 - 2πrcl2

= 2πrclh

= 2 × 3.14 × 51 × 4

= 1281.12 m2

Area of base of cone = πrco2

∴ Area of canvas required for cone = πrco2 + πrcol – πrco2

= πrcol

= 3.14 × 51 × 40

= 6405.6 m2

Total area of canvas required = Area of canvas required for cylinder + Area of canvas

Required for cone

= 1281.12 + 6405.6

= 7686.72 m2

∴ Total area of canvas required = 7686.72 m2


4. The radii of the top and bottom of a bucket of slant height 45 cm are 28 cm and 7 cm respectively. Find the curved surface area of the bucket.

Solution

Given: Slant height of bucket = l = 45 cm

Radius of bottom circle = r = 7 cm

Radius of top circle = R = 28 cm

As the bucket is in the form of frustum

Formula: Total surface area of frustum = πr2 + πR2 + π(R + r)l cm2

Now we have asked curved surface area, so we should subtract the top and bottom surface.

Areas which are flat circles.

Surface area of top = πr2

Surface area of bottom = πR2

∴ Curved surface area = total surface area – πr2 – πR2 cm2

= πr2 + πR2 + π(R + r)l – πr2 – πR2 cm2

= π(R + r)l cm2

= 3.14 × (28 + 7) × 45 cm2

= 3.14 × 35 × 45 cm2

= 4945.5 cm2

Therefore, curved surface area of bucket = 4945.5 cm2


5. A solid metal cone with radius of base 12 cm and height 24 cm is melted to form solid spherical balls of diameter 6 cm each. Find the number of balls formed.

Solution

Given: base radius of cone = rc = 12 cm

Height of cone = h = 24 cm

Diameter of spherical ball = 6 cm

Radius of spherical ball: rs = 6/2 = 3 cm

Formula: Volume of cone = (1/3) πrc2h

Volume of sphere = (4/3) πrs3

Let n be the number of spherical balls made

As the cone is melted and then the spherical balls are made therefore the volume remains same

i.e., volume of n spherical balls made = volume of cone

∴ n × (4/3) × π × rs3 = (1/3) × π × rc2 × h

⇒ n × 4 × 33 = 122 × 24

⇒ n × 9 = 12 × 24

⇒ n = 32

∴ Number of balls formed = 32


6. A hemisphere bowl of internal diameter 30 cm is full of a liquid. This liquid is filled into cylindrical – shapes bottles each of diameter 5 cm and height 6 cm. How many bottles are required ?

Solution

Given: Diameter of hemisphere = 30 cm

∴ Radius of hemisphere = rh = 30/2 = 15 cm

Diameter of cylindrical shaped bottles = 5 cm

∴ radius of cylindrical shaped bottles = 5/2 = rc = 2.5 cm

Height of cylindrical shaped bottle = h = 6 cm

Formula: Volume of hemisphere = (Volume of sphere/2) = (2/3)πrh3

Volume of cylinder = πrc2h

Let ‘n’ bottles are required

As we are filling the cylindrical bottles with liquid in hemispherical bowl hence we can say that

Volume of liquid in cylindrical bottles = volume of liquid in hemisphere

∴ n × π × rc2 × h = (2/3) × π × rh3

⇒ n × 2.52 × 6 × 3 = 2 × 153

⇒ n × 6.25 × 9 = 3375

⇒ n = 3375/56.25

⇒ n = 60

Therefore 60 cylindrical shaped bottles are required to fill the liquid from hemispherical bowl.


7. A solid metallic sphere of diameter 21 cm is melted and recast into small cones, each of diameter 3.5 cm and height 3 cm. Find the number of cones so formed.

Solution

Given: Diameter of sphere = 21 cm

∴ radius of sphere = rs = (21/2) cm

Diameter of cone = 3.5 cm

∴ radius of cone = rc = (3.5)/2 = 17.5 = (7/4) cm

Height of cone = h = 3 cm

Formula: Volume of sphere = (4/3)πrs3

Volume of cone = (1/3)πrc2h

Sphere is melted and then cones are made from molten metal therefore the volume remains same

Let ‘n’ be the number of cones made

i.e., volume of n cones = volume of sphere

∴ n × (1/3) × π × rc2 × h = (4/3) × π × rs3

∴ n × 72/42 × 3 = 4 × 213/23

⇒ n = (16 × 21 × 9)/(2 × 3) = 8 × 21 × 3 = 504

Therefore number of cones formed = 504


8. The diameter of a sphere is 42 cm. It is melted and drawn into a cylindrical wire of diameter 2.8 cm. Find the length of the wire.

Solution

Given: Diameter of sphere = 42 cm

∴ Radius of sphere = 42/2 = rs = 21 cm

Diameter of cylindrical wire = 2.8 cm

∴ Radius of cylindrical wire = rc = 1.4 = (7/5) cm

Let l be the length of wire

Formula: Volume of sphere = (4/3)πrs3

Volume of wire = πrc2l

Sphere is melted and wire is made from it

∴ Volume of sphere = Volume of wire

(4/3)πrs3 = πrc2l

⇒ 4 × 213 = 3 × (7/5)2 × l

⇒ 4 × 21 × 9 × 25 = 3 × l

⇒ 2100 × 3 = l

⇒ l = 6300 cm

Therefore length of wire formed = 6300 cm = 63 metres


9. A drinking glass is in the shape of frustum of a cone of height 21 cm with 6 cm and 4 cm as the diameters of its two circular ends. Find the capacity of the glass.

Solution

Given:

Height of glass = h = 21 cm

Diameter of lower circular end of glass = 4 cm

Diameter of upper circular end of glass = 6 cm

∴ Radius of lower circular end = r = 4/2 = 2 cm

∴ Radius of upper circular end = R = 6/2 = 3 cm

Formula: Volume of frustum of cone = 1/3πh(R2 + r2 + Rr) cm3

Capacity of glass = Volume of frustum

∴ Capacity of glass = 1/3 × 22/7 × 21 × (32 + 22 + 3 × 2)

= 22 × (9 + 4 + 6)

= 22 × 19

= 418 cm3

∴ Capacity of glass = 418 cm3


10. Two cubes, each of volume 64 cm3, are joined end to end. Find the total surface area of the resulting cuboid.

Solution

Volume of each cube = 64 cm3

Let a be the side length of each cube

∴ a3 = 64

⇒ a = 4 cm

The figure shows both the cubes joined together after joining we get a cuboid of length 2a and breadth a and height a

Length of cuboid formed = l = 2a

l = 8 cm

Breadth of cuboid formed = b = 4 cm

Height of cuboid formed = h = 4 cm

In the cuboid so formed there are 4 rectangular surfaces of length l = 8 and breadth b = 4 and 2 surfaces of length 4

Total surface area of cuboid = 4 × l × b + 2a2

= (4 × 8 × 4) + (2 × 42)

= 128 + 32

= 160 cm2

Total surface area of cuboid = 160 cm2


11. The radius of the base and height of a solid right circular cylinder are in the ratio 2 : 3 and its volume is 1617 cm3. Find the total surface area of the cylinder. [Take π = 22/7]

Solution

Given: Volume of cylinder = 1617 cm3

Let r be the radius of base and h be the height of cone

r : h = 2 : 3

∴ r/h = 2/3

⇒ 3r = 2h

⇒ h = 3r/2 …(i)

Formula: Volume of cylinder = πr2h

∴ 1617 = (22/7) r2h

r2h = 514.5

Using (i), we have

∴ r2 × (3r/2) = 514.5

⇒ 3r3 = 1029

⇒ r3 = 343

⇒ r = 7 cm

h = 21/2 cm

Total surface area of cylinder = 2πr2 + 2πrh

= 2 × (22/7) × 72 + 2 × (22/7) × 7 × (21/2)

= 308 + 462

= 770 cm2

Therefore total surface area of cylinder = 770 cm2


12. A toy is in the form of a cone mounted on a hemisphere on a hemisphere of common base radius 7 cm. The total height of the toy is 31 cm. Find the total surface area of the toy.

Solution

Given: Height of toy = h = 31 cm

Radius of hemisphere = radius of base of cone = r = 7 cm

From the figure we can calculate height of cone as

Height of cone hc = h – r

= 31 – 7 = 24 cm

∴ hc = 24 cm

Formula: Surface area of hemisphere = surface area of sphere/2 = 2πr2

Curved surface area of cone = πrl

Where l is slant height

⇒ l = √(49 + 576) = 25 cm

∴ l = 25 cm

Total surface area of toy = curved surface area of cone + surface area of hemisphere

Surface area of hemisphere = 2 × π × r2

= 2 × (22/7) × 72

= 308 cm2

Curved surface area of cone = π × r × l

= (22/7) × 7 × 25

= 550 cm2

∴ Total surface area of toy 308 + 550

= 858 cm2

∴ Total surface area of toy = 858 cm2


13. A hemispherical bowl of internal radius 9 cm is full of water. This water is to be filled in cylindrical bottles of diameter 3 cm and height 4 cm. Find the number of bottles needed to fill the whole water of the bowl.

Solution

Given: Radius of hemisphere = rh = 9 cm

Diameter of cylindrical shaped bottles = 3 cm

∴ Radius of cylindrical shaped bottles = rc = 3/2 = 1.5 cm

Height of cylindrical shaped bottle = h = 4 cm

Formula: Volume of hemisphere = (Volume of sphere/2) = (2/3)πrh3

Volume of cylinder = πrc2h

Let ‘n’ bottles are required

As we are filling the cylindrical bottles with liquid in hemispherical bowl hence we can say that

Volume of liquid in cylindrical bottles = volume of liquid in hemisphere

∴ n × π × rc2 × h = (2/3) × π × rh3

⇒ n × (3/2)2 × 4 × 3 = 2 × 93

⇒ n = 33 × 2

⇒ n = 27 × 2

⇒ n = 54

Therefore 54 cylindrical shaped bottles are required to fill the liquid from hemispherical bowl.


14. The surfaces areas of a sphere and a cube are equal. Find the ratio of their volumes. [Takes π = 22/7]

Solution

Let r be the radius of sphere and a be the side length of cube.

Let Ss be the surface area of sphere and Sc be the surface area of cube and Vs be the volume of sphere and Vc be the volume of cube

∴ Ss = 4πr2 and Sc = 4a2

Given that surface area of sphere and cube are equal

∴ Ss = Sc

4πr2 = 6a2

r2/a2 = 3/2π

∴ r/a = √3/√2π …(i)

Vs = (4/3) πr3

⇒ Vc = a3

∴ Vs/Vc = 4πr3/3a3

Using (i)

∴ Vs/Vc = (√21)/(√11)

Therefore ratio of their volumes is Vs: Vc = √21 : √11


15. The slant height of the frustum of a cone is 4 cm and the perimeters (i.e., circumferences) of its circular ends area 18 cm and 6 cm. Find the curved surface area of the frustum.

Solution

Given: Perimeter of upper circle = 18 cm

Perimeter of lower circle = 6 cm

Slant height of frustum = l = 4 cm

Formula: Total surface area of frustum = πr2 + πR2 + π(R + r)l cm2

Let r be the radius of lower circle and R be the radius of upper circle

Now perimeter of circle = Circumference of circle = 2π × radius 

∴ Perimeter of upper circle = 2πR

18 = 2 × π × R

⇒ R = 9/π cm

Perimeter of lower circle = 2πr

6 = 2 × π × r

⇒ r = 3/ π cm

Now we have asked curved surface area, so we should subtract the top and bottom surface areas which are flat circles.

Surface area of top = πR2

Surface area of bottom = πr2

∴ Curved surface area = total surface area – πr2 – πR2 cm2

= πr2 + πR2 + π(R + r)l – πr2 - πR2 cm2

= π(R + r)l cm2

= π × [(9/π) + (3/π) × 4 cm2

= (9 + 3) × 4 cm2

= 48 cm2

∴ Curved surface area = 48 cm2


16. A solid is composed of a cylinder with hemisphere ends. If the whole length of the solid is 104 cm and the radius of each hemispherical and is 7 cm, find the surface area of the solid.

Solution

Total length of solid = l = 104 cm as shown in figure

The solid consist of a cylinder and two hemispheres

Let the height of cylinder be h

We get the height h by subtracting the radii of left and right hemisphere from the total length l as seen in figure

∴ h = 104 – (7 + 7) cm

∴ h = 90 cm

Let r be the radius of hemisphere and the radius of cylinder

∴ r = 7 cm

There are two hemisphere one at left and one at right both of same radius r and two hemispheres make one sphere

Surface area of sphere = 4πr2

The flat circles i.e., the upper and lower circles of cylinder are not to be considered in the surface area of whole solid as they are covered by the hemisphere therefore for cylinder we will take its curved surface area

Curved surface area of cylinder= 2πrh

Surface area of solid = surface area of sphere + curved surface area of cylinder

= 4πr2 + 2πrh

= 2 × (22/7) × 7 × (2 × 7 + 90)

= 44 × 104

= 4576 cm2

Therefore total surface area of solid = 4576 cm2


17. From a solid cylinder whose height is 15 cm and diameter 16 cm, a conical cavity of the same height and the same diameter is hollowed out. Find the total surface area of the remaining solid. [Use π = 3.14]

Solution

After removing the conical solid the cylinder would look like this

Given: height of cylinder = height of cone = h = 15 cm

Diameter of cylinder = diameter of base cone = 16 cm

∴ radius of cylinder = radius of base of cone = 16/2 = r = 8 cm

Formula: total surface area of cylinder = 2πr2h + πrh

Total surface area of cone = πrl + πr2

Where l is the slant height

l = √(r2 + h2)

⇒ l = √(82 + 152)

⇒ l = √289

⇒ l = 17 cm

In the solid as seem in figure we have the curved surface of cylinder and the base of cylinders as there is no top circular face of the cylinder we should subtract its area from that surface area of cylinder

Area of top circular surface of cylinder = πr2

∴ surface area of cylinder in solid = 2πr2 + πrh – πr2

= πr2 – πrh

= 3.14 × 8 × (8 + 15)

= 3.14 × 8 × 23

= 577.76 cm2

Now there is a hollow conical part with no base of the cone as seen in the figure therefore we should subtract the surface area of base of cone from the total surface area of cone.

Surface area of base of cone = πr2

∴ Surface area of conical part in solid = πrl + πr2 - πr2

= πrl

= 3.14 × 8 × 17

= 427.04 cm2

Therefore total surface area of solid = Surface area of cylinder in solid + surface area of conical part in solid

= 577.76 + 427.04

= 1004.8 cm2

Surface area of solid = 100.8 cm2


18. A solid rectangular block of dimension 4.4 m, 2.6 m, 1 m is cast into hollow cylindrical pipe of internal radius 30 cm and thickness 5 cm. Find the length of the pipe.

Solution

Given: length of the block = l = 4.4 m

Width of the block = w = 2.6 m

Height of the book = h = 1 m

Inner radius of pipe = r = 30 cm = 0.3 m

Thickness of pipe = t = 5 cm = 0.05 m

∴ outer radius of pipe as seen in the cross section of pipe = R = r + t = 30 + 5 = 35 cm = 0.35 m

Let l be the length f the pipe

Formula: Volume of block = l × w × h

= 4.4 × 2.6 × 1

= 11.44 m3

Volume of block = 11.44 m3

Volume of pipe = π × (radius)2 × (length)

Volume of pipe material = volume of full pipe(R = 0.35) – Volume of hollow cylinder(r = 0.3)

= π × 0.352 × l × π × 0.32 × l

= π × l × [(35/100)2 – (3/10)2]

= π × l × [(35/100) + (3/10)] × [(35/100) – (3/10)]

= π × l × 65/100 × 5/100

= (22/7) × l × (13/400) m3

∴ volume of pipe material = (22/7) × l × (13/400) m3

The pipe is made from the block

 ∴ volume of block = volume of pipe material

∴ 11.44 = (22/7) × l × (13/400)

∴ l = (7 × 400 × 11.44)/(22 × 13) = (28 × 52)/13

∴ l = 28 ×

∴ l = 112 m

Length of the pipe = 112 m


19. An open metal bucket is in the shape of a frustum of a cone, mounted on a hollow cylindrical base made of the same metallic sheet. The diameter of the two circular ends of the bucket are 45 cm and 25 cm, the total vertical height of the bucket is 40 cm and that of the cylindrical base is 6 cm. Find the area of the metallic sheet used to make the bucket. Also, find the volume of water the bucket cam hold, in litres.

Solution

Give:

Radius of upper circular end of frustum = R = 45 cm

Radius of lower circular end of frustum = radius of cylindrical base = r = 25 cm

Height of bucket = hb = 40 cm

Height of cylindrical base = hc = 6 cm

From the figure height of frustum = hf = hb – hc

= 40 – 6

∴ hf = 34 cm

Formula: Volume of frustum of cone = 1/3πhf (R2 + r2 + Rr) cm3

Volume of cylinder = πr2hc

Curved surface area of cylinder = 2πrhc

Curved surface area of frustum = π(R + r)l cm2

Where l = slant height

Area of metallic sheet used = curved surface area of frustum + curved surface area of base

Cylinder + area + base circle of cylinder

Now, curved surface area of frustum = π × (R + r) × l cm2

= (22/7) × (45 + 25) × 39.44 cm2

= 22 × 10 × 39.44 cm2

= 8676.8 cm2

Curved surface area of base cylinder = 2πrhc

= 2 × (22/7) × 25 × 6

= 942.85 cm2

Surface area of base circle of cylinder = πr2

= (22/7) × 252

= 1964.28 cm2

∴ Area of metallic sheet used = 8676.8 + 942.85 + 1964.28

= 11583.93 cm2

Therefore, area of metallic sheet used to make the bucket is 11583.93 cm2 i.e., 1.158393 m2

Volume of water bucket can hold = volume of gas cylinder + volume of frustum

Volume of base cylinder = πr2hc

= (22/7) × 252 × 6

= 11785.71 cm3

Volume of frustum = 1/3 × 22/7 × 34 × (452 + 252 + 45 × 25)

= 748/21 × (2025 + 1750)

= 35.62 × 3775

= 134465.5 cm3

∴ Volume of water bucket can hold = 11785.71 + 134465.5

= 146251.21 cm3

Now 1 litre is 1000 cm3

∴ 146251.21 cm3 = (146251.21)/1000 = 146.25121 litres

Volume of water bucket can hold = 146.25121 litres


20. A farmer connect a pipe of internal diameter 20 cm from a canal into a cylindrical tank which is 10 m diameter and 2 m deep. If the water flows through the pipe at the of 4 km/hr, in how much time will the tank be filled completely ?

Solution

Given: diameter of pipe = 20 cm

∴ radius of pipe = rp = 20/2 = 10 cm = 0.1 m

Diameter of tank = 10 m

∴ radius of cylindrical tank = rc = 10/2 = 5 m

Depth of cylindrical tank = height of cylindrical tank = h = 2 m

Rate of flow of water through pipe = 4 km/hr

1 km = 1000 m

4 km/hr = 4000 m/hr

Volume of water required to completely fill the tank is equal to the volume of cylinder

Time require to fill the tank = (volume of cylindrical tank)/(volume of water flown through pipe per hr)

Volume of cylindrical tank = π × rc2 × h

= 3.14 × 25 × 2

= 157 m3

Volume of water flown through pipe per hr = π × rp2 × 4000

= 3.14 × 0.12 × 4000

= 3.14 × 40

= 125.6 m3/hr

Time require to fill the tank = 157/125.6

= 1.25 hrs

Therefore, it will take 1.25 hours to fill the tank completely.
