Area of base = πr2

Substituting the known values in this equation we get

Based on this we get the values as

R = 8

H = 12

H – h = 9

Substituting these values in the relationship mentioned earlier

=

The curved surface area of the conical tomb to be white-washed is 550 m2

The cost of white washing is given as Rs. 210 per 100 m2

This works out to Rs. 2.10 per m2

Total cost (T.C) of white washing the conical tomb is

A tent is in the form of a right circular cylinder surmounted by a cone. The diameter of cylinder is 24 m. The height of the cylindrical portion is 11 m while the vertex of the cone is 16 m above the ground. Find the area of the canvas required for the tent.

The tent being in the form of a cone surmounted on a cylinder the total amount of canvas required would be equal to the sum of the curved surface areas of the cone and the cylinder.

The diameter of the cylinder is given as 24 m. Hence its radius, r = 12 m. The height of the cylinder, h = 11 m.

The curved surface area of a cylinder with radius ‘r’ and height ‘h’ is given by the formula

Curved Surface Area of the cylinder =

Substituting the values of r = 12 m and h = 11 m in the above equation

Curved Surface Area of the cylinder =

=

The vertex of the cone is given to be 16 m above the ground and the cone is surmounted on a cylinder of height 11 m, hence the vertical height of the cone is h = 5 m. The radius of the cone is the same as the radius of the cylinder and so base radius, r = 12 m.

To find the slant height ‘l’ to be used in the formula for Curved Surface Area we use the following relation

Slant height, l =

=

l = 13 m

The formula of the curved surface area of a cone with base radius ‘r’ and slant height ‘l’ is given as

A circus tent is cylindrical to a height of 3 metres and conical above it. If its diameter is 105 m and the slant height of the conical portion is 53 m, calculate the length of the canvas 5 m wide to make the required tent.

We need to find out the total amount of canvas required to make the circus tent. The height of the cylindrical portion is given as h = 3 m, and the diameter is given as 105 m.

Hence the radius r = m.

The curved surface area of a cylinder with radius ‘r’ and height ‘h’ is given by the formula

Curved Surface Area of the cylinder =

Substituting the values of r = m and h = 3 m in the above equation

Curved Surface Area of the cylinder =

=

= (22) (15) (3)

= 990

Hence the curved surface area of the cylinder is 990 m2

The slant height of the cone is l = 53 m. The base radius of the cone is the same as the radius of the cylinder and hence r =

The formula of the curved surface area of a cone with base radius ‘r’ and slant height ‘l’ is given as

Curved Surface Area = πrl

Substituting the values of r = m and l = 53 m in the above equation

We get

Curved Surface Area of the cone =

= 8745

Hence the curved surface area of the cone is 8745 m2

Total curved surface area = Curved surface area of cone + curved surface area of cylinder

= 8745 + 990

= 9735

The total surface area of the tent is 9735 m2

Now, the width (or) breadth of the canvas is 5 m.

Area of the canvas required = (Breadth of the canvas) (Length of the canvas)

Therefore,

Length of the canvas =

= 1947

Hence the length of canvas required is

#### Question 20:

The circumference of the base of a 10 m height conical tent is 44 metres. Calculate the length of canvas used in making the tent if width of canvas is 2 m. (Use $\mathrm{\pi }$ = 22/7).

The total amount of canvas required would be equal to the curved surface area of the cone.

The formula of the curved surface area of a cone with base radius ‘r’ and slant height ‘l’ is given as

Curved Surface Area = πrl

It is given that the circumference of the base is 44 m.

So,

= 10

=

= 7 m

It is given that the vertical height of the cone is h = 10 m.

To find the slant height ‘l’ to be used in the formula for Curved Surface Area we use the following relation

Slant height,

l =

=

=

=

l = m

Now, substituting the values of r = 7 m and slant height l = m and using in the formula of C.S.A,

We get Curved Surface Area =

=

Hence the curved surface area of the given cone is m2

Now, the width of the canvas is 5 m.

Area of the canvas required = (Width of the canvas) (Length of the canvas)

Therefore,

Length of the canvas =

= 134.27

Hence the length of canvas required is

#### Question 21:

What length of tarpaulin 3 m wide will be required to make a conical tent of height 8 m and base radius 6 m? Assume that the extra length of material will be required for stitching margins and wastage in cutting is approximately 20 cm (Use $\mathrm{\pi }$ = 3.14)

The total amount of canvas required would be equal to the curved surface area of the cone.

The formula of the curved surface area of a cone with base radius ‘r’ and slant height ‘l’ is given as

Curved Surface Area = πrl

It is given that the base radius r = 6 m and vertical height h = 8 m.

To find the slant height ‘l’ to be used in the formula for Curved Surface Area we use the following relation

Slant height,

l =

=

=

l = 10 m

Now, substituting the values of r = 6 m and slant height l = 10 m and using π = 3.14 in the formula of C.S.A,

We get Curved Surface Area =

= 188.4

Hence the curved surface area of the cone is 188.4 m2

Now, the width of the canvas is 3 m.

Area of the canvas required = (Width of the canvas) (Length of the canvas)

Therefore,

Length of the canvas =

=

= 62.8

Length of canvas is 62.8 m. But we need to add another 20 cm of length for wastage.

20 cm = 0.2 m.

Hence the total amount of canvas length required is

=

l = 1.02 m

Now, substituting the values of r = 0.2 m and slant height l = 1.02 m and using π = 3.14 in the formula of C.S.A,

We get Curved Surface Area =

= 0.64056 m2

This is the curved surface area of a single cone. Since we need to paint 50 such cones the total area to be painted is,

Total area to be painted = (0.64056) (50)

= 32.028 m2

The cost of painting is given as Rs. 12 per m2

Hence the total cost of painting = (12) (32.028)

= 384.336

Hence, the total cost that would be incurred in painting is

#### Question 23:

A cylinder and a cone have equal radii of these bases and equal heights. If their curved surface areas are in the ratio 8:5, show that the radius of each is to the height of each as 3:4.

It is given that the base radius and the height of the cone and the cylinder are the same.

So let the base radius of each is ‘r’ and the vertical height of each is ‘h’.

Let the slant height of the cone be ‘l

The curved surface area of the cone =

The curved surface area of the cylinder =

It is said that the ratio of the curved surface areas of the cylinder to that of the cone is 8:5

So,

=

=

=

But we know that l =

=

Squaring on both sides we get

=

=

=

= – 1

=

=

Hence it is shown that the ratio of the radius to the height of the cone as well as the cylinder is
