^{}

⇒ a = 4 cm

Side of the cube = 4 cm

Length of the resulting cuboid = 4 cm

Breadth of the resulting cuboid = 4 cm

Height of the resulting cuboid = 8 cm

∴ Surface area of the cuboid = 2(lb + bh + lh)

= 2(8×4 + 4×4 + 4×8) cm

Tent is combination of cylinder and cone.

Diameter = 4 m

Slant height of the cone (l) = 2.8 m

Radius of the cone (r) = Radius of cylinder = 4/2 = 2 m

Height of the cylinder (h) = 2.1 m

∴ Required surface area of tent = Surface area of cone+Surface area of cylinder

= πrl + 2πrh

= πr(l+2h)

= 22/7 × 2 (2.8 + 2×2.1)

= 44/7 (2.8 + 4.2)

= 44/7 × 7 = 44 m

Cost of the canvas of the tent at the rate of ₹500 per m

= Surface area × cost per m

= 44 × 500 = ₹22000

**Answer**

Two hemisphere and one cylinder are given in the figure.

Diameter of the capsule = 5 mm

∴ Radius = 5/2 = 2.5 mm

Length of the capsule = 14 mm

∴ Length of the cylinder = 14 - (2.5 + 2.5) = 9mm

Surface area of a hemisphere = 2πr

^{2}= 2 × 22/7 × 2.5 × 2.5
= 275/7 mm

^{2}Surface area of the cylinder = 2πrh

= 2 × 22/7 × 2.5 x 9

= 22/7 × 45

990/7 mm

^{2}∴ Required surface area of medicine capsule

= 2 × Surface area of hemisphere + Surface area of cylinder

Slant height of the cone (l) = 2.8 m

Radius of the cone (r) = Radius of cylinder = 4/2 = 2 m

Height of the cylinder (h) = 2.1 m

∴ Required surface area of tent = Surface area of cone+Surface area of cylinder

= πrl + 2πrh

= πr(l+2h)

= 22/7 × 2 (2.8 + 2×2.1)

= 44/7 (2.8 + 4.2)

= 44/7 × 7 = 44 m

^{2}Cost of the canvas of the tent at the rate of ₹500 per m

^{2}= Surface area × cost per m

Diameter of cylinder = diameter of conical cavity = 1.4 cm

∴ Radius of cylinder = Radius of conical cavity = 1.4/2 = 0.7

Height of cylinder = Height of conical cavity = 2.4 cm

TSA of remaining solid = Surface area of conical cavity+TSA of cylinder

= πrl + (2πrh + πr

^{2})

length is 12 cm and diameter 10 cm, so as to cover the curved surface of
the cylinder. Find the length and mass of the wire, assuming the density
of copper to be 8.88 g per cm

Since, the diameter of the wire is 3 mm.

When a wire is one round wound about a cylinder, it covers a 3 mm of length
of the cylinder.

Given, length of the cylinder = 12 cm = 120 mm

∴ Number of rounds to cover 120 mm = 120/3 = 40

Given, diameter of a cylinder is d = 10 cm

∴ Radius, r = 10/2 = 5 cm

∴ Length of wire required to complete one round = 2πr = 2π(5) = 10π cm

∴ Length of the wire in covering the whole surface

= Length of the wire in completing 40 rounds

= 10π × 40 = 400π cm
