### Exercise (13.3)

1. Diameter of the base of a cone is $\text{10}\text{.5 cm}$ and its slant height is $\text{10 cm}$. Find its curved surface area. $\left[ \text{Assume }\!\!\pi\!\!\text{ = }\frac{\text{22}}{\text{7}} \right]$

Ans:

We are Given the Following:

The slant height $\left( \text{l} \right)$ of the cone $\text{= 10 cm}$

The diameter of the base of cone $\text{= 10}\text{.5 cm}$

So, the radius $\left( \text{r} \right)$ of the base of cone $\text{= }\frac{\text{10}\text{.5}}{\text{2}}\text{ cm = 5}\text{.25 cm}$

The curved surface area of cone, $\text{A = }\!\!\pi\!\!\text{ rl}$

$\Rightarrow \text{A = }\left( \frac{\text{22}}{\text{7}}\text{ }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 5}\text{.25 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 10} \right)\text{ c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$

$\Rightarrow \text{A = }\left( \text{22 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 0}\text{.75 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 10} \right)\text{ c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$

$\Rightarrow \text{A = 165 c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$

Therefore, the curved surface area of the cone is $\text{165 c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$.

2. Find the total surface area of a cone, if its slant height is $\text{21 m}$and diameter of its base is $\text{24 m}$. $\left[ \text{Assume }\!\!\pi\!\!\text{ = }\frac{\text{22}}{\text{7}} \right]$

Ans:

We are Given the Following:

The slant height $\left( \text{l} \right)$ of the cone $\text{= 21 m}$

The diameter of the base of cone $\text{= 24 m}$

So, the radius $\left( \text{r} \right)$ of the base of cone $\text{= }\frac{\text{24}}{\text{2}}\text{ m = 12 m}$

The total surface area of cone, $\text{A = }\!\!\pi\!\!\text{ r}\left( \text{l + r} \right)$

$\Rightarrow \text{A = }\left( \frac{\text{22}}{\text{7}}\text{ }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 12 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ }\left( \text{21 + 12} \right) \right)\text{ }{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$

$\Rightarrow \text{A = }\left( \frac{\text{22}}{\text{7}}\text{ }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 12 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 33} \right)\text{ }{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$

$\Rightarrow \text{A = 1244}\text{.57 }{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$

Therefore, the total surface area of the cone is $\text{1244}\text{.57 }{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$.

3. Curved surface area of a cone is $\text{308 c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$ and its slant height is $\text{14 cm}$. Find

Ans:

It is given that the slant height $\left( \text{l} \right)$ of the cone $\text{= 14 cm}$

The curved surface area of the cone $\text{= 308 c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$

Let us assume the radius of base of cone be $\text{r}$.

We know that curved surface area of the cone $\text{= }\!\!\pi\!\!\text{ rl}$

$\therefore \text{ }\!\!\pi\!\!\text{ rl = 308 c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$

$\Rightarrow \left( \frac{\text{22}}{\text{7}}\text{ }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ r }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 14} \right)\text{ cm = 308 c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$

$\Rightarrow \text{r = }\frac{\text{308}}{\text{44}}\text{ cm}$

$\Rightarrow \text{r = 7 cm}$

Hence, the radius of the base is $\text{7 cm}$.

ii. Total Surface Area of the Cone. $\left[ \text{Assume }\!\!\pi\!\!\text{ = }\frac{\text{22}}{\text{7}} \right]$

Ans:

The total surface area of the cone is the sum of its curved surface area and the area of the base.

Total surface area of cone, $\text{A = }\!\!\pi\!\!\text{ rl + }\!\!\pi\!\!\text{ }{{\text{r}}^{\text{2}}}$

$\Rightarrow \text{A = }\left[ \text{308 + }\frac{\text{22}}{\text{7}}\text{ }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ }{{\left( \text{7} \right)}^{\text{2}}} \right]\text{ c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$

$\Rightarrow \text{A = }\left[ \text{308 + 154} \right]\text{ c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$

$\Rightarrow \text{A = 462 c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$

Hence, the total surface area of the cone is $\text{462 c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$.

4. A conical tent is $\text{10 m}$ high and the radius of its base is $\text{24 m}$. Find

i. slant height of the tent

Ans:

From the figure we can say that $\text{ABC}$ is a conical tent.

It is given that the height $\left( \text{h} \right)$ of conical tent $\text{= 10 m}$

The radius $\left( \text{r} \right)$ of conical tent $\text{= 24 m}$

Let us assume the slant height as $\text{l}$.

In $\text{ }\!\!\Delta\!\!\text{ ABD}$, we will use Pythagorean Theorem.

$\therefore \text{A}{{\text{B}}^{\text{2}}}\text{ = AD}{{\text{ }}^{\text{2}}}\text{ + B}{{\text{D}}^{\text{2}}}$

$\Rightarrow {{\text{l}}^{\text{2}}}\text{ = }{{\text{h}}^{\text{2}}}\text{ + }{{\text{r}}^{\text{2}}}$

$\Rightarrow {{\text{l}}^{\text{2}}}\text{ = }{{\left( \text{10 m} \right)}^{\text{2}}}\text{ + }{{\left( \text{24 m} \right)}^{\text{2}}}$

$\Rightarrow {{\text{l}}^{\text{2}}}\text{ = 676 }{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$

$\Rightarrow \text{l = 26 m}$

The slant height of the tent is $\text{26 m}$.

ii. cost of canvas required to make the tent, if cost of $\text{1 }{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$ canvas is $\text{Rs}\text{. 70}$. $\left[ \text{Assume }\!\!\pi\!\!\text{ = }\frac{\text{22}}{\text{7}} \right]$

Ans:

The curved surface area of the tent, $\text{A = }\!\!\pi\!\!\text{ rl}$

$\Rightarrow \text{A = }\left( \frac{\text{22}}{\text{7}}\text{ }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 24 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 26} \right)\text{ }{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$

$\Rightarrow \text{A = }\left( \frac{13728}{7} \right)\text{ }{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$

It is given that the cost of $\text{1 }{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$ of canvas $\text{= Rs}\text{. 70}$

So, the cost of $\frac{13728}{7}\text{ }{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$ canvas $\text{= Rs}\text{. }\left( \frac{\text{13728}}{\text{7}}\text{ }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 70} \right)\text{ = Rs}\text{. 137280}$

Hence, the cost of canvas required to make the tent is $\text{Rs}\text{. 137280}$.

5. What length of tarpaulin $\text{3 m}$ wide will be required to make conical tent of height $\text{8 m}$ and base radius $\text{6 m}$? Assume that the extra length of material that will be required for stitching margins and wastage in cutting is approximately $\text{20 cm}$. $\left[ \text{Use }\!\!\pi\!\!\text{ = 3}\text{.14} \right]$

Ans:

We are Given the Following:

The base radius $\left( \text{r} \right)$ of tent $\text{= 6 m}$

The height $\left( \text{h} \right)$ of tent $\text{= 8 m}$

So the slant height of the tent, $\text{l = }\sqrt{{{\text{r}}^{\text{2}}}\text{ + }{{\text{h}}^{\text{2}}}}$

$\Rightarrow \text{l = }\left( \sqrt{{{\text{6}}^{\text{2}}}\text{ + }{{\text{8}}^{\text{2}}}} \right)\text{ m}$

$\Rightarrow \text{l = }\left( \sqrt{\text{100}} \right)\text{ m}$

$\Rightarrow \text{l = 10 m}$

The curved surface area of the tent, $\text{A = }\!\!\pi\!\!\text{ rl}$

$\Rightarrow \text{A = }\left( \text{3}\text{.14 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 6 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 10} \right)\text{ }{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$

$\Rightarrow \text{A = 188}\text{.4 }{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$

It is give the width of tarpaulin $\text{= 3 m}$

Let us assume the length of the tarpaulin sheet required be $\text{x}$.

It is given that there will be a wastage of $\text{20 cm}$.

So, the new length of the sheet $\text{=}\left( \text{x - 0}\text{.2} \right)\text{ m}$

We know that the area of the rectangular sheet required will be the same as the curved surface area of the tent.

$\therefore \left[ \left( \text{x - 0}\text{.2} \right)\text{ }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 3} \right]\text{ m = 188}\text{.4 }{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$

$\Rightarrow \text{x - 0}\text{.2 m = 62}\text{.8 m}$

$\Rightarrow \text{x = 63 m}$

The length of tarpaulin sheet required is $\text{63 m}$.

6. The slant height and base diameter of a conical tomb are $\text{25 m}$ and $\text{14 m}$ respectively. Find the cost of white-washing its curved surface at the rate of $\text{Rs}\text{. 210}$ per $\text{100 }{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$. $\left[ \text{Assume }\!\!\pi\!\!\text{ = }\frac{\text{22}}{\text{7}} \right]$

Ans:

We are Given the Following:

The base radius $\left( \text{r} \right)$ of tomb $\text{= 7 m}$

The slant height $\left( \text{l} \right)$ of tomb $\text{= 25 m}$

The curved surface area of the conical tomb, $\text{A = }\!\!\pi\!\!\text{ rl}$

$\Rightarrow \text{A = }\left( \frac{22}{7}\text{ }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 7 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 25} \right)\text{ }{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$

$\Rightarrow \text{A = 550 }{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$

It is given that the cost of white-washing $\text{1 }{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$ area $\text{= Rs}\text{. 210}$

So, the cost of white-washing $550\text{ }{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$ area $\text{= Rs}\text{. }\left( \frac{\text{210}}{\text{100}}\text{ }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 550} \right)\text{ = Rs}\text{. 1155}$

Hence, the cost of white-washing the curved surface area of a conical tomb is $\text{Rs}\text{. 1155}$.

7. A joker’s cap is in the form of a right circular cone of base radius $\text{7 cm}$ and the height $\text{24 cm}$. Find the area of the sheet required to make $\text{10}$ such caps. $\left[ \text{Assume }\!\!\pi\!\!\text{ = }\frac{\text{22}}{\text{7}} \right]$

Ans:

We are Given the Following:

The base radius $\left( \text{r} \right)$ of conical cap $\text{= 7 cm}$

The height $\left( \text{h} \right)$ of conical cap $\text{= 24 cm}$

So the slant height of the tent, $\text{l = }\sqrt{{{\text{r}}^{\text{2}}}\text{ + }{{\text{h}}^{\text{2}}}}$

$\Rightarrow \text{l = }\left( \sqrt{{{\text{7}}^{\text{2}}}\text{ + 2}{{\text{4}}^{\text{2}}}} \right)\text{ cm}$

$\Rightarrow \text{l = }\left( \sqrt{625} \right)\text{ cm}$

$\Rightarrow \text{l = 25 cm}$

The curved surface area of one conical cap, $\text{A = }\!\!\pi\!\!\text{ rl}$

$\Rightarrow \text{A = }\left( \frac{22}{7}\text{ }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 7 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 25} \right)\text{ c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$

$\Rightarrow \text{A = 550 c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$

So, the curved surface area of $\text{10}$ conical caps $\text{= }\left( \text{550 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 10} \right)\text{ c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}\text{ = 5500 c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$

Therefore, the total area of the sheet required is $\text{5500 c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$.

8. A bus stop is barricaded from the remaining part of the road, by using $\text{50}$ hollow cones made of recycled cardboard. Each cone has a base diameter of $\text{40 cm}$ and height $\text{1 m}$. If the outer side of each of the cones is to be painted and the cost of painting is $\text{Rs}\text{. 12}$ per ${{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$, what will be the cost of painting all these cones?

$\left[ \text{Use }\!\!\pi\!\!\text{ = 3}\text{.14 and take }\sqrt{\text{1}\text{.02}}\text{=1}\text{.02} \right]$

Ans:

We are Given the Following:

The base radius $\left( \text{r} \right)$ of cone $\text{= }\frac{\text{40}}{\text{2}}\text{ = 20 cm = 0}\text{.2 m}$

The height $\left( \text{h} \right)$ of cone $\text{= 1 m}$

So the slant height of the cone, $\text{l = }\sqrt{{{\text{r}}^{\text{2}}}\text{ + }{{\text{h}}^{\text{2}}}}$

$\Rightarrow \text{l = }\left( \sqrt{{{\left( \text{0}\text{.2} \right)}^{\text{2}}}\text{ + }{{\left( \text{1} \right)}^{\text{2}}}} \right)\text{ m}$

$\Rightarrow \text{l = }\left( \sqrt{1.04} \right)\text{ m}$

$\Rightarrow \text{l = 1}\text{.02 m}$

The curved surface area of one cone, $\text{A = }\!\!\pi\!\!\text{ rl}$

$\Rightarrow \text{A = }\left( \text{3}\text{.14 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 0}\text{.2 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 1}\text{.02} \right)\text{ }{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$

$\Rightarrow \text{A = 0}\text{.64056 c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$

So, the curved surface area of $\text{50}$ cones $\text{= }\left( \text{50 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 0}\text{.64056} \right)\text{ }{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}\text{ = 32}\text{.028 }{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$

It is given that the cost of painting $\text{1 }{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$ area $\text{= Rs}\text{. 12}$

So, the cost of painting $32.028\text{ }{{\text{m}}^{\text{2}}}$ area $\text{= Rs}\text{. }\left( \text{32}\text{.028 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 12} \right)\text{ = Rs}\text{. 384}\text{.336}$

We can also write the cost approximately as $\text{Rs}\text{. 384}\text{.34}$.

Therefore, the cost of painting all the hollow cones is $\text{Rs}\text{. 384}\text{.34}$.
