Q-7 Find the volume of a sphere whose surface area is .


Consider radius of the sphere to be

We know that, surface area

Since we know radius r, volume is =

Q-8 A dome of a building is in the form of a hemisphere. From inside, it was white-washed at the cost of If the cost of white-washing is per square metre, find the

  1. Inside surface area of the dome.

  2. Volume of the air inside the dome.


We know that,

  • Inside of the building is white-washed at the cost of

  • Rate of white washing is per square metre.

  1. Therefore, inside surface area of the dome

  2. Let, radius of the dome be , then surface area (which we know from I. above)

Volume of the air inside the dome = Volume of the dome. However, since we know the radius, we can now calculate the volume =
