(a) Calculate the surface area of the inside of the container that is in contact with the water. Diagram I shows a closed rectangular box with a square base. 6. The diagrams show two ways of packaging 4 identical balls. The container rests on a horizontal surface and is exactly half full of water. 5. The balls touch the ends and the side of the cylinder.4. (c) Calculate the total volume of the 4 balls. each of . (e) Hence state which of the two containers has more space not occupied by the balls. (ii) Calculate the total surface area of the outside of this box. A closed container is made by joining together a cylinder of radius 9 cm and a hemisphere of radius 9 cm as shown in Diagram I. correct to three decimal places. Give your answer correct to the nearest square centimetre. the bottom and two sides of the box. Calculate the depth of the water. (c) The container is held with its axis vertical. (a) A wooden cuboid has length 20 cm. Each ball touches the top.

(b) red. (b) . Showing your working clearly.6 m. to leave the block as shown in the diagram. 25 litre and 75 litre bags costing $2. The depth of the bath is 0.3 m. Calculate the length of the bath. in minutes and seconds. (i) Calculate the number of litres of water in the tank. Calculate (i) the volume when the depth is 6 cm. (ii) The four vertical sides are painted blue. Calculate the total area that is painted blue. When the depth is 12 cm. The lengths of the parallel sides of the trapezium are 0. to empty the tank. The bath is a prism whose cross-section is a trapezium.5 cm. are hollowed out of the top of the cuboid. state which bag represents the best value for money. of the outside of the tank. the volume is 576 cm3.radius 2. $8. A hot water tank is made by joining a hemisphere of radius 30 cm to an open cylinder of radius 30 cm and height 70 cm. (a) Calculate the total surface area.75 and $27 respectively.4 m and 0. (a) Compost for growing plants consists of 3 parts of soil to 2 parts of sand to 1 part of peat. (i) Calculate the number of litres of sand in a 75 litre bag of compost. which it just completely fills. (iii) 8. (ii) the depth when the volume is 1300 cm3. (i) Calculate the volume of wood in the block. Calculate the total area that is painted (a) white. The flat part of the top of the block is painted red. All of the water from the tank runs into a bath. [2] (ii) Compost is sold in 5 litre. including the base. Calculate the time. (b) The volume of water in a container is directly proportional to the cube of its depth. 7. [3] (ii) The water drains from the tank at a rate of 3 litres per second. (iii) The inside of each hemispherical hollow is painted white. [4] (b) The tank is full of water.

in square centimetres. The shaded area shows the cross-section of the material on the roll. Calculate the thickness of the material. Give your answer in litres. How many of these plant pots can be completely filled from a 75 litre bag of compost? 9. The open end of this plant pot is a circle of radius 5 cm. The closed end is a circle of radius 5 cm. The height of the plant pot is 12 cm. The open end of the plant pot is a circle of radius 10 cm. (i) Calculate. the length of the material is 150 m.The diagram shows a plant pot. in cubic metres. The diagram shows a roll of material. The material is wound onto a metal cylinder whose crosssection is a circle of radius 10 cm. The outer layer of material forms the curved surface of a cylinder of radius 30 cm. Calculate. (i) Calculate the volume of the plant pot. (ii) The material is 200 cm wide on the roll. the area of the cross-section of the material on the roll (shaded on the diagram). The plant pot is part of a right circular cone of height 24 cm. . giving your answer in millimetres. (iii) When unwound. the volume of the material. (ii) How many of these plant pots can be completely filled from a 75 litre bag of compost? (iii) A smaller plant pot is geometrically similar to the original plant pot.
