Q-1 Diameter of the base of a cone is and its slant height is . Find its curved surface area.Solution:

Lateral and total surface area of the cone

Area of Cone

Lateral and total surface area of the cone

Cone has a slant height s which is given as (because of Pythagoras theorem).

Here, cone radius (r) and slant height (l) . Therefore, curved surface area of the cone

  • =

  • =

  • =

Q-2 Find the total surface area of a cone, if its slant height is and diameter of its base is .Solution:

  • Radius (r)

  • Slant height (l)

Total surface area of the cone

Q-3 Curved surface area of a cone is and its slant height is . Find

  1. Radius of the base and

  2. Total surface area of the cone.

Solution:

Solution (I)

Curved surface of a cone and slant height (l)

Therefore,

Solution (II)

Therefore, total surface area of the cone
