• Formula of lateral surface area : 2*pi * r*h • Radius and hight will change. Let us assume the area of base has reduced by 1/9. thus r = sqrt (1/9 *pi) thus we can compare them as : (2 pi are common) = r*h : 1/3 r*6h = the new area is 2 times the old area. Answer.

Two cylindrical vessels with radii 15 cm & 10 cm and heights 35 cm & 15 cm respectively are filled with water. If this water is poured into a cylindrical vessel 15 cm in height, then the radius of the vessel is
• • • • Volume of first : 22/7*15*15*35=24750 Volume of 2nd =22/7*10*10*15 = 4714 Add them : 29464 22/7*r*r*15 = 29464, thus radius^2 = 625 or r=25

A solid cylinder has a total surface area of 231 cm If its curved surface area is two-third of the total surface area, the volume of the cylinder is?
Total base surface area is : 1/3 *231 = 77 2 * ( pi *radius * radius) = 77 Radius ^2 = 77 *7 / (2*22) = 12.25 or R= 3.5 2*22/7*35*h = 154 or h = 154*7 / (2*22*35) =.7 Vol. = 22/7 *3.5*3.5* .7 = 26.9 answer

The radius of a wire is decreased to one-third; If volume remains the same, the height will become:
• • • • New formula : 22/7 * (1/3 r)^2 * h = 22/7 * r^2 * H We can say that 1/9h = H Or new height is 9 times the earlier height.

The sum of the radius of the base and the height of a solid cylinder is 37 m. If the total surface area of the cylinder be 1628 m its volume is ?
• • • • R + h = 37 Total surface area = 2pi r * h + 2 pi * r^2 2pi r (h+r) = 1628 or r = 1628 *7/ (37**2*22)=7 Thus 22/7*7*7*30 = 4620 cubic meters

2.2 cubic dm. of lead is to be drawn into a cylindrical wire 0.50 cm in diameter. The length of the wire is
• Convert this into cm, we get 2200 cubit cm. • 22/7 * .25*.25 * h = 2200 • H = 2200 * 7 / (22*.25*.25) = 11200 cm ans.

If the area of a circle be equal to that of a square. then the ratio of the side of the square and the radius of the circle is
• • • • • Side ^2 = pi * radius * radius Let us assume that side is 1. 1 = pi * radius * radius Thus radius = sqrt(1/pi) Thus ratio of side and radius is 1: .56 answer.

The radius of a circle is increased so that its circumference is increased by 5%. The area of the circle will increase by
the circumference has increased by 5%, so radius must have also increased by 5%. Thus new radius is 105% in comparison to earlier radius. Thus the increase in area is : (105)^2 – (100)^2 or 11025-10000 or 10.25% answer.
