**Question 3:**

A cubical block of side is surmounted by a hemisphere. What is the greatest diameter the hemisphere can have? Find the surface area of the solid.

**Answer:**

Greatest diameter of the hemisphere Side of the cubical block

TSA of the solid = External surface area of the cubical block CSA of hemisphere

**Question 4:**

A hemispherical depression is cut out from one face of a cubical wooden block such that the diameter of the hemisphere is equal to the edge of the cube. Determine the surface area of the remaining solid

**Answer:**

Diameter of the hemisphere , therefore radius of the hemisphere

Also, length of the edge of the cube

Surface area of the remaining solid

**Question 5:**

Rachel, an engineering student, was asked to make a model shaped like a cylinder with two cones attached at its two ends by using a thin aluminium sheet. The diameter of the model is and its length is . If each cone has a height of , find the volume of air contained in the model that Rachel made. (Assume the outer and inner dimensions of the model to be nearly the same.)

**Answer:**

For upper conical portion, Radius of the base

Height

Volume

For lower conical portion, Volume

For central cylindrical portion

Radius of the base

Height

Volume of the model
