**Question: 1**

Find the surface area of a sphere of radius:

(i) 10.5 cm

(ii) 5.6 cm

(iii) 14 cm

**Solution:**

(i) Given Radius = 10.5 cm

Surface area = 4πr^{2}

= 4 × 22/7 × (10.5)^{2}

= 1386 cm^{2}

(ii) Given radius = 5.6 cm

Surface area = 4πr^{2}

= 4 × 22/7 × (5.6)^{2}

= 394.24 cm^{2}

(iii) Given radius = 14 cm

Surface area = 4πr^{2}

= 4 × 22/7 × (14)^{2}

= 2464 cm^{2}

**Question: 2**

Find the surface area of a sphere of diameter:

(i) 14 cm

(ii) 21 cm

(iii) 3.5 cm

**Solution:**

(i) Given Diameter = 14 cm

Radius = Diameter/2

= 14/2 = 7 cm

Surface area = 4πr^{2}

= 4 × 22/7 × (7)^{2}

= 616 cm^{2}

(ii) Given Diameter = 21cm

Radius = Diameter/2

= 21/2 = 10.5 cm

Surface area = 4πr^{2}

= 4 × 22/7 × (10.5)^{2}

= 1386 cm^{2}

(iii) Given diameter = 3.5 cm

Radius = Diameter/2

= 3.5/2 = 1.75 cm

Surface area = 4πr^{2}

= 4 × 22/7 × (1.75)^{2}

= 38.5 cm^{2}

**Question: 3**

Find the total surface area of a hemisphere and a solid hemisphere each of radius 10cm (π = 3.14)

**Solution:**

The surface area of the hemisphere = 2πr^{2}

= 2 × 3.14 × (10)^{2}

= 628 cm^{2}

The surface area of solid hemisphere = 2πr^{2}

= 3 × 3.14 × (10)^{2}

= 942 cm^{2}

**Question: 4**

The surface area of a sphere is 5544 cm^{2}, find its diameter.

**Solution:**

Surface area of a sphere is 5544 cm^{2}

4πr^{2} = 5544

4 × 3.14 × (r)^{2} = 5544

r = 21cm

Diameter = 2(radius)

= 2(21) = 42 cm

**Question: 5**

A hemispherical bowl made of brass has inner diameter 10.5 cm. Find the cost of tin plating it on the inside at the rate of Rs.4 per 100 cm^{2}.

**Solution:**

Inner diameter of hemispherical bowl = 10.5cm

Radius = 10.5/2 = 5.25 cm

Surface area of hemispherical bowl = 2πr^{2}

= 2 × 3.14 × (5.25)^{2}

= 173.25 cm^{2}

Cost of tin plating 100cm^{2} area = Rs.4

Cost of tin plating 173.25 cm^{2}

Thus, the cost of tin plating the inner side of hemispherical bowl is Rs.6.93

**Question: 6**

The dome of a building is in the form of a hemisphere. Its radius is 63dm. Find the cost of painting it at the rate of Rs.2 per sq m.

**Solution:**

Dome radius = 63 dm = 6.3 m

Inner surface area of dome = 2πr^{2}

= 2 × 3.14 × (6.3)^{2}

= 249.48 m^{2}

Now, cost of 1m^{2} = Rs.2

Therefore cost of 249.48 m^{2} = Rs. (249.48 × 2) = Rs. 498.96

**Question: 7**

Assuming the earth to be a sphere of radius 6370 km, how many square kilometers is the area of the land if three-fourths of the earth’s surface is covered by water?

**Solution:**

3/4^{th} of earth surface is covered by water

Therefore 1/4^{th} of earth surface is covered by land

Therefore Surface area covered by land = 1/4 × 4πr^{2}

= 1/4 × 4 × 22/7 × (6370)^{2}

= 127527400 km^{2}

**Question: 8**

A cylinder of same height and radius is placed on top of a hemisphere. Find the curved surface area of the shape if the length of the shape is 7cm.

**Solution:**

Given length of the shape = 7cm

But length = r + r

2r = 7cm

r = 3.5 cm

Also; h = r

Total surface area of shape = 2πrh + 2πr^{2}

= 2πrr + 2πr^{2}

= 2πr^{2} + 2πr^{2}

= 4 × 22/7 × (3.5)^{2} = 154 cm^{2}

**Question: 9**

A wooden toy is in the form of a cone surmounted on a hemisphere. The diameter of the base of the cone is 16 cm and its height is 15 cm. Find the cost of painting the toy at Rs.7 per 100 cm^{2}

**Solution:**

Diameter of cone = 16 cm

Radius of cone = 8 cm

Height of cone = 15 cm

Slant height of cone

Therefore Total curved surface area of toy

= πrl + 2πr^{2}

= 22/7 × 8 × 17 + 2 × 22/7 × 8^{2}

= 5808/7 cm^{2}

Now, cost of 100cm^{2} = Rs.7

1cm^{2} = Rs. 7/100

Hence cost of 5808/7 cm^{2} = Rs. 5808/7 × 7/100

= Rs. 58.08

**Question: 10**

A storage tank consists of a circular cylinder with a hemisphere adjoined on either end. If the external diameter of the cylinder be 1.4 m and its length is 8 m, find the cost of painting it on the outside at the rate of Rs.10 per m^{2}.

**Solution:**

Diameter of a cylinder = 1.4 m

Therefore radius of cylinder = 1.42 = 0.7 m

Height of cylinder = 8 m

Therefore surface area of tank = 2πrh + 2πr^{2}

= 2 × 22/7 × 0.7 × 8 + 2 × 22/7 × (0.7)^{2}

= 176/5 + 77/25 = 38.28 m^{2}

Now cost of 1m^{2} = Rs.10

Therefore cost of 38.28 m^{2} = Rs. 382.80

**Question: 11**

The diameter of the moon is approximately one-fourth of the diameter of the earth. Find the ratio of their surface areas.

**Solution:**

Let the diameter of the earth be d

Then,

Diameter of moon will be d/4

Radius of earth = d/2

Radius of moon

Surface area of moon = 4π(d/8)^{2}

Surface area of earth = 4π(d/2)^{2}

Thus the required ratio of the surface areas is 1/16

**Question: 12**

A hemispherical dome of a building needs to be painted. If the circumference of the base of the dome is 17.6cm, find the cost of painting it, given the cost of painting is Rs.5 per 100 cm^{2}

**Solution:**

Given that only the rounded surface of the dome to be painted, we would need to find the curved surface area of the hemisphere to know the extent of painting that needs to be done.

Now, circumference of the dome = 17.6 cm

Therefore 2πr = 17.6

2 × 22/7 × r = 17.6 m

So, the radius of the dome = 2πr^{2}

= 2 × 22/7 × 2.8 × 2.8

= 49.28m^{2}

Cost of painting 100 cm^{2} is Rs.5

So, the cost of painting 1m^{2} = Rs.500

Therefore the cost of painting the whole dome = Rs. 500 × 49.28

= Rs. 24640

**Question: 13**

The front compound wall of a house is decorated by wooden spheres of diameter 21 cm, placed on small supports as shown in the figure. Eight such spheres are used for this purpose and are to be painted silver. Each support is a cylinder of radius 1.5 cm and height 7cm and is to be painted black. Find the cost of paint required if silver paint costs 25 paise per cm^{2}.

**Solution:**

Wooden sphere radius = 21/2 = 10.5 cm

Surface area of a wooden sphere = 4πr^{2} = 4 × 22/7 × (10.5)^{2} = 1386 cm^{2}

Radius r of cylindrical support = 1.5 cm

Height h of cylindrical support = 7cm

Curved surface area of cylindrical support = 2πrh = 2 × 22/7 × 1.5 × 7 = 66 cm^{2}

Area of circular end of cylindrical support = πr^{2 }= 22/7 × (1.5)^{2} = 7.07cm^{2}

Area to be painted silver = 8(1386 − 7.07) cm^{2}

= 8(1378.93) cm^{2}

= 11031.44 cm^{2}

Cost occurred in painting silver colour = (11034.44 × 0.25) = Rs.2757.86

Area to be painted black = (8 × 66) cm^{2} = 528 cm^{2}

Cost occurred in painting black colour = (528 × 5.05) = Rs.26.40

Therefore total cost in painting = Rs.2757.86 + Rs.26.40

= Rs.2784.26
