Q-1 The curved surface area of a right circular cylinder of height is . Find the diameter of the base of the cylinder.

Solution:

The radius of the base is and the height of the cylinder. Therefore, curved surface area of cylinder

• (Given)

So, the diameter of the base is =

Q-2 It is required to make a closed cylindrical tank of height 1 m and base diameter 140 cm from a metal sheet. How many square metres of the sheet are required for the same?Solution:

We are given that diameter of base and Height

Therefore, metal sheet required to make a closed cylindrical tank =

Q-3 A metal pipe is long. The inner diameter of a cross section is, the outer diameter being (see Fig.). Find its

1. Inner curved surface area,

2. Outer curved surface area,

3. Total surface area.

Solution:

External radius is and the internal radius is the length of the pipe is , therefore

1. Inner curved surface

2. Outer curved surface

• ()

3. Total surface area of a pipe = Inner curved surface area + outer curved surface area + areas of two base

• ()
