### Exercise 13.4

1. A drinking glass is in the shape of a frustum of a cone of height$\mathbf{14}\text{ }\mathbf{cm}$. The diameters of its two circular ends are $\mathbf{4}\text{ }\mathbf{cm}$ and $\mathbf{2}\text{ }\mathbf{cm}$. Find the capacity of the glass. $\left[ Use\,\,\pi =\dfrac{22}{7} \right]$

Ans:

Radius (${{r}_{1}}$) of upper base of glass $=\dfrac{4}{2}=2cm$

Radius (${{r}_{2}}$) of lower base of glass$=\dfrac{2}{2}=1cm$

Height = $14cm$

Capacity of glass = Volume of frustum of cone

$=\dfrac{1}{3}\pi\text{h}\left[ \text{r}_{1}^{2}+\text{r}_{2}^{2}+{{\text{r}}_{1}}{{\text{r}}_{2}} \right]$

$=\dfrac{1}{3}\pi \text{h}\left[ {{(2)}^{2}}+{{(1)}^{2}}+(2)(1) \right]$

$=\dfrac{1}{3}\times \dfrac{22}{7}\times 14(4+1+2)$

$=\dfrac{308}{3}$

$=102\dfrac{2}{3}~\text{c}{{\text{m}}^{3}}$

Therefore, the capacity of the glass $=102\dfrac{2}{3}~\text{c}{{\text{m}}^{3}}$

2. The slant height of a frustum of a cone is $\mathbf{4}\text{ }\mathbf{cm}$ and the perimeters (circumference) of its circular ends are $\mathbf{18}\text{ }\mathbf{cm}$ and $\mathbf{6}\text{ }\mathbf{cm}$. Find the curved surface area of the frustum.

Ans:

Perimeter of upper circular end of frustum $=18 cm$

$\Rightarrow 2\pi {{r}_{1}}\text{ }=18$

$\Rightarrow {{r}_{1}}=\dfrac{9}{\pi }$

Perimeter of lower circular end of frustum $=6 cm$

$\Rightarrow 2\pi {{r}_{2}}\text{ }=6$

$\Rightarrow {{r}_{2}}=\dfrac{3}{\pi }$

Slant height (l) of frustum $=4 cm$

CSA of frustum:

$\Rightarrow \pi \left( {{r}_{1}}+{{r}_{2}} \right)l$

$\Rightarrow \pi \left( \dfrac{9}{\pi }+\dfrac{3}{\pi } \right)4$

$\Rightarrow 12\left( 4 \right)=48c{{m}^{2}}$

Therefore, the curved surface area of the frustum$=48c{{m}^{2}}$

3. A fez, the cap used by the Turks, is shaped like the frustum of a cone (see the figure given below). If its radius on the open side is$\mathbf{10}\text{ }\mathbf{cm}$, radius at the upper base is $\mathbf{4}\text{ }\mathbf{cm}$ and its slant height is$\mathbf{15}\text{ }\mathbf{cm}$, find the area of material used for making it. $\left[ Use\,\,\pi =\dfrac{22}{7} \right]$

Ans:

Radius (${{r}_{2}}$) at upper circular end $=\text{ }4\text{ }cm$

Radius (${{r}_{1}}$) at lower circular end $=10\text{ }cm$

Slant height (l) of frustum $=15\text{ }cm$

Area of material used for making the fez:

$\Rightarrow$ CSA of frustum+Area of upper circular end

$\Rightarrow \pi \left( {{r}_{1}}+{{r}_{2}} \right)l+\pi r_{2}^{2}$

$\Rightarrow \pi (10+4)15+\pi (4)^2$

$\Rightarrow \pi (14)15+16\pi$

$\Rightarrow 210\pi +16\pi =\dfrac{226\times 22}{7}$

$\Rightarrow 710\dfrac{2}{7}~\text{c}{{\text{m}}^{2}}$

Therefore, the area of material used for making it is $710\dfrac{2}{7}~\text{c}{{\text{m}}^{2}}$.

4. A container, opened from the top and made up of a metal sheet, is in the form of a frustum of a cone of height $16\text{ }cm$ with radii of its lower and upper ends as $\mathbf{8}\text{ }\mathbf{cm}$ and $\mathbf{20}\text{ }\mathbf{cm}$ respectively. Find the cost of the milk which can completely fill the container, at the rate of $\mathbf{Rs}.\mathbf{20}$per liter. Also find the cost of metal sheet used to make the container, if it costs$\mathbf{Rs}.\mathbf{8}\text{ }\mathbf{per}\text{ }\mathbf{100}\text{ }\mathbf{c}{{\mathbf{m}}^{2}}$. Take $\mathbf{\pi }\text{ }=\text{ }\mathbf{3}.\mathbf{14}$

Ans:

Radius (${{r}_{1}}$) of upper end of container $=20\text{ }cm$

Radius (${{r}_{2}}$) of lower end of container $=8\text{ }cm$

Height (h) of container $=16\text{ }cm$

Slant height (l) of frustum $=\sqrt{{{\left( {{r}_{1}}-{{r}_{2}} \right)}^{2}}+{{h}^{2}}}$

$=\sqrt{{{(20-8)}^{2}}+{{(16)}^{2}}}$

$=\sqrt{{{(12)}^{2}}+{{(16)}^{2}}}=\sqrt{144+256}$

$=20~\text{cm}$

Capacity of container $=$ Volume of frustum

$=\dfrac{1}{3}\pi \text{h}\left[ \text{r}_{1}^{2}+\text{r}_{2}^{2}+{{\text{r}}_{1}}{{\text{r}}_{2}} \right]$

$=\dfrac{1}{3}\times 3.14\times 16\times \left[ {{(20)}^{2}}+{{(8)}^{2}}+(20)(8) \right]$

$=\dfrac{1}{3}\times 3.14\times 16(400+64+160)$

$=\dfrac{1}{3}\times 3.14\times 16\times 624$

$=10449.92~\text{c}{{\text{m}}^{3}}$

$=10.45$ litres

Cost of 1 litre milk$=\operatorname{Rs}20$

Cost of $10.45$ litre milk $=\operatorname{Rs} 209$

Area of metal sheet used to make the container $=\pi \left( {{\text{r}}_{1}}+{{\text{r}}_{2}} \right)\text{l}+\pi {{\text{r}}_{2}}^{2}$

$=\pi (20+8)20+\pi {{(8)}^{2}}$

$=560\pi +64\pi =624\pi \text{c}{{\text{m}}^{2}}$

Cost of $100~\text{c}{{\text{m}}^{2}}$ metal sheet$=Rs\,8$

Cost of $624\pi \text{c}{{\text{m}}^{2}}$ metal sheet $= \dfrac{624\times 3.14\times 8}{100}=\operatorname{Rs}156.75$

Therefore, the cost of the milk which can completely fill the container is $Rs\text{ }209$  and the cost of metal sheet used to make the container is $Rs156.75$

5. A metallic right circular cone $\mathbf{20}\text{ }\mathbf{cm}$ high and whose vertical angle is $\mathbf{60}{}^\circ$ is cut into two parts at the middle of its height by a plane parallel to its base. If the frustum so obtained is drawn into a wire of diameter$\dfrac{1}{16}cm$, find the length of the wire. $\left[ Use\,\,\pi =\dfrac{22}{7} \right]$

Ans:

In $\vartriangle \text{AEG},$

$\dfrac{\text{EG}}{\text{AG}}=\tan {{30}^{{}^\circ }}$

$\text{EG}=\dfrac{10}{\sqrt{3}}~\text{cm}=\dfrac{10\sqrt{3}}{3}$

In $\vartriangle \text{ABD},$

$\dfrac{\text{BD}}{\text{AD}}=\tan {{30}^{{}^\circ }}$

$\text{BD}=\dfrac{20}{\sqrt{3}}=\dfrac{20\sqrt{3}}{3}~\text{cm}$

Radius $\left( {{r}_{1}} \right)$ of upper end of frustum

$=\dfrac{10\sqrt{3}}{3}~\text{cm}$

Radius $\left( {{r}_{2}} \right)$ of lower end = $\dfrac{20\sqrt{3}}{3}$cm

Height $(h)$  $=10~\text{cm}$

Volume of frustum:

$\Rightarrow\dfrac{1}{3}\pi\text{h}\left[\text{r}_{1}^{2}+\text{r}_{2}^{2}+{{\text{r}}_{1}}{{\text{r}}_{2}} \right]$

$\Rightarrow\left.\dfrac{1}{3}\times\pi\times10[{{\left(\dfrac{10\sqrt{3}}{3}\right)}^{2}}+{{\left(\dfrac{20\sqrt{3}}{3}\right)}^{2}}+\dfrac{(10\sqrt{3})(20\sqrt{3})}{3\times 3} \right]$

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{10}{3}\pi \left[ \dfrac{100}{3}+\dfrac{400}{3}+\dfrac{200}{3} \right]$

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{10}{3}\times \dfrac{22}{7}\times \dfrac{700}{3}$

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{22000}{9}~\text{c}{{\text{m}}^{3}}$

Radius $(r)$ of wire$=\dfrac{1}{16}\times \dfrac{1}{2}=\dfrac{1}{32}~\text{cm}$

Let the length of wire be $l$

Volume of wire $=Area\,\,of\,cross\,section\times Length$

$=\left( \pi {{r}^{2}} \right)\times (l)$

$=\pi \times {{\left( \dfrac{1}{32} \right)}^{2}}\times l$

Volume of frustum = Volume of wire

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{22000}{9}=\dfrac{22}{7}{{\left( \dfrac{1}{32} \right)}^{2}}l$

$\Rightarrow \dfrac{7000}{9}\left( 1024 \right)=l$

$\Rightarrow l=796444.44~\text{cm}$

$\Rightarrow l=7964.44~\text{m}$
