let the internal radius of the hollow shell be r = 8 cm

let the external radius of the hollow shell be R = 9 cm

therefore the volume of the spherical shell V =

weight of 1 cubic cm = 4.5 gm

thus the weight of the spherical shell =

hope this helps you

  • r=internal radii= 8
  • R = external radii=9
  • volume of hollow sphere=4/3.22/7.(R3 - r3)
  • putting value of R and r
  • 4/3.22/7.(9.9.9.-8.8.8)
  • 4/3.22/7.(791-512)
  • 4/3.22/7.279
  • 8184/7cm3
  • weight of 8184/7 cm3 = 8184/7.4.5=5261.1 gms.
