**Question** 1

(a) A cylinder radius is doubled and height is halved, the curved surface area of the cylinder will_________ (Increase/decrease/remain same)

(b) The radius of the sphere is 7 cm, the surface area of the sphere is ___________ (/7/)

(c) Three cubes whose sides are 6 cm, 8 cm and 10 cm. They are melted and form a big cube.

The volume of the big cube is__________ (/)

(d) The total surface area of a hemisphere of radius 10 cm using value of is__________ ()/ ()

(e) A right circular cylinder just encloses a sphere of radius. The ratio of their surface area is______ (1:1/1:2)

(f) The lateral surface area of a cube is 256 m2, the volume is_______ ()/ ()

**Solution**

(a) Remain same

So if r is doubled, h is halved, CSA will remain same

(b) 616 cm2 Surface area

(c)

(d) 956 cm2 Total surface area =

(e) 1:1 In this height of cylinder will be 2r and radius of cylinder wiH r. So it is equal

(f) Lateral surface areaand Volume

True or False statement

**Question** 2

a) A cylinder, hemisphere and cone stand on equal base and same height, the Volume ratio is 3:2:1

b) The radius of a solid sphere is 24 cm. 8 spheres can be made from it of 12cm radius

c) Radius of the cone is doubled and height is halved, the volume will be halved

d) A river 10m deep and 40m wide is flowing at the rate of 2m per min. Water will flow into the sea from river

e) A cylinder radius is halved and height is doubled, the volume will become halved

f) The side of the cube is 4 cm, the diagonal length is cm

**Solution**

a) True. All of them will have height as r as hemisphere height can be r only.

For cylinder

Hemisphere

Cone

So ratio is 3:2:1

b) True Sphere volume

c) False. Volume will be doubled Volume is given by

d) True. It is equal to the volume of the cuboid 10m, 40m, and 120 m

e) True.

b) False

**Multiple choice Questions**

**Question** 2

The length, breadth and height of a room are 12 m, 10 m, and 9m respectively. Find the area of our walls of room?

a)

b)

c)

d)

**Solution** (b)

Area of the walls is given by

**Question** 3

The plastic paint in a Asian paint container is sufficient to paint an area equal to How many blocks of dimensions can be painted out of this container

a)

b)

c)

d)

**Solution** (d)

Total surface area of one block

Let n blocks can be painted out by the paint of the container.

Area of n bricks

Area that can be painted by the paint of the container

n=1000

Therefore, 100 blocks can be painted out by the paint of the container

**Question** 5

Curved surface area of a cone is and its slant height is 14 cm.

a) Radius of the cone is 7cm

b) Total surface area is

c) Height of the cone is v147

d) None of the above

**Solution** (a), (b), (c)

Curved surface area=

So r=7 cm

Now total surface area

**Question** 6

a)

b)

c)

d) None of these

**Solution** a

Curved surface of cylinder=2urh
