## Exercise (13.5)

1. A matchbox measures \[\text{4 cm }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 2}\text{.5 cm }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 1}\text{.5 cm}\]. What will be the volume of a packet containing $\text{12}$ such boxes?

Ans:

We are given the following:

Length of matchbox $\text{l = 4 cm}$

Breadth of matchbox $\text{b = 2}\text{.5 cm}$

Height of matchbox $\text{h = 1}\text{.5 cm}$

The volume of single matchbox $\text{V = l }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ b }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ h}$

$\Rightarrow \text{V = }\left( \text{4 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 2}\text{.5 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 1}\text{.5} \right)\text{ c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}$

$\Rightarrow \text{V = 15 c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}$

So, the volume of $\text{12}$ matchboxes $\text{= }\left( \text{15 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 12} \right)\text{ c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}\text{ = 180 c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}$

Hence, the volume of $\text{12}$ matchboxes is $\text{180 c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}$.

2. A cuboidal water tank is $\text{6 m}$ long, $\text{5 m}$ wide and $\text{4}\text{.5 m}$ deep. How many litres of water can it hold? $\left( \text{1 }{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}\text{ = 1000 litre} \right)$

Ans:

We are given the following:

Length of tank $\text{l = 6 m}$

Breadth of tank $\text{b = 5 m}$

Height of tank $\text{h = 4}\text{.5 m}$

The volume of tank $\text{V = l }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ b }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ h}$

$\Rightarrow \text{V = }\left( \text{6 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 5 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 4}\text{.5} \right)\text{ }{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}$

$\Rightarrow \text{V = 135 }{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}$

We know the amount of water with volume $\text{1 }{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}$ can hold $\text{= 1000 litres}$

So, the amount of water with volume $\text{135 }{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}$ can hold $\text{= }\left( \text{1000 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 135} \right)\text{ litres = 135000 litres}$

Therefore, the tank can contain $\text{135000 litres}$ of water.

3. A cuboidal vessel is $\text{10 m}$ long and $\text{8 m}$ wide. How high must it be made to hold $\text{380}$ cubic metres of a liquid?

Ans:

We are given the following:

Length of vessel $\text{l = 10 m}$

Width of vessel $\text{b = 8 m}$

Volume of vessel $\text{V = 380 }{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}$

Let $\text{h}$ be the height of the vessel.

We know the volume of cuboidal vessel $\text{= l }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ b }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ h}$

$\therefore \text{l }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ b }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ h = 380 }{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}$

\[\Rightarrow \left[ \text{10 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 8 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ h} \right]\text{ }{{\text{m}}^{2}}\text{ = 380 }{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}\]

$\Rightarrow \text{h = 4}\text{.75 m}$

Therefore, the height of the vessel is $\text{4}\text{.75 m}$.

4. Find the cost of digging a cuboidal pit $\text{8 m}$ long, $\text{6 m}$ broad and $\text{3 m}$deep at the rate of $\text{Rs}\text{. 30}$ per ${{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}$.

Ans:

We are given the following:

Length of tank $\text{l = 8 m}$

Breadth of tank $\text{b = 6 m}$

Depth of tank $\text{h = 3 m}$

The volume of tank $\text{V = l }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ b }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ h}$

$\Rightarrow \text{V = }\left( \text{8 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 6 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 3} \right)\text{ }{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}$

$\Rightarrow \text{V = 144 }{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}$

It is given that the cost of digging per ${{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}$ volume $\text{= Rs}\text{. 30}$

So, the cost of digging per $\text{144 }{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}$ volume $\text{= Rs}\text{. }\left( \text{30 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 144} \right)\text{ = Rs}\text{. 4320}$

Therefore, the required cost of digging is $\text{Rs}\text{. 4320}$.

5. The capacity of a cuboidal tank is $\text{5000 litres}$ of water. Find the breadth of the tank, if its length and depth are respectively $\text{2}\text{.5 m}$ and $\text{10 m}$.

Ans:

We are given the following:

Length of tank $\text{l = 2}\text{.5 m}$

Depth of tank $\text{h = 10 m}$

Let us assume the breadth of the tank to be $\text{b m}$.

The volume of tank $\text{V = l }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ b }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ h}$

$\Rightarrow \text{V = }\left( \text{2}\text{.5 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ b }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 10} \right)\text{ }{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}$

$\Rightarrow \text{V = 25b }{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}$

We can write the capacity of the tank $\text{= 25b }{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}\text{ = 25000b litres}$

But it is given that the capacity of the tank is $\text{50000 litres}$

$\therefore \text{25000b = 50000}$

$\Rightarrow \text{b = 2}$

Therefore, the breadth of the cuboidal tank is $\text{2 m}$.

6. A village, having a population of $\text{4000}$, requires $\text{150 litres}$ of water per head per day. It has a tank measuring $\text{20 m }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 15 m }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 6 m}$. For how many days will the water of this tank last?

Ans:

We are given the following:

Length of tank $\text{l = 20 m}$

Breadth of tank $\text{b = 15 m}$

Height of tank $\text{h = 6 m}$

The capacity of tank $\text{V = l }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ b }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ h}$

$\Rightarrow \text{V = }\left( \text{20 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 15 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 6} \right)\text{ }{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}$

$\Rightarrow \text{V = 1800 }{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}$

$\Rightarrow \text{V = 1800000 litres}$

The total water consumed by the people in a day $\text{= }\left( \text{4000 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 150} \right)\text{ litres = 600000 litres}$

Let us assume that the water in the tank will last for $\text{n}$ days.

$\therefore \text{n }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 600000 = 1800000}$

$\Rightarrow \text{n = 3}$

Therefore, the water in the tank will last $\text{3}$ days.

7. A godown measures $\text{40 m }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 25 m }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 15 m}$. Find the maximum number of wooden crates each measuring $\text{1}\text{.5 m }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 1}\text{.25 m }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 0}\text{.5 m}$ that can be stored in the godown.

Ans:

We are given the following:

Length of godown $\text{L= 40 m}$

Breadth of godown $\text{B = 25 m}$

Height of godown $\text{H = 15 m}$

Length of wooden crate $\text{l = 1}\text{.5 m}$

Breadth of wooden crate $\text{b = 1}\text{.25 m}$

Height of wooden crate $\text{h = 0}\text{.5 m}$

The volume of godown ${{\text{V}}_{\text{g}}}\text{ = L }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ B }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ H}$

$\Rightarrow {{\text{V}}_{\text{g}}}\text{ = }\left( \text{40 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 25 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 15} \right)\text{ }{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}$

$\Rightarrow {{\text{V}}_{\text{g}}}\text{ = 15000 }{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}$

The volume of a wooden crate ${{\text{V}}_{\text{c}}}\text{ = l }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ b }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ h}$

$\Rightarrow {{\text{V}}_{\text{c}}}\text{ = }\left( \text{1}\text{.5 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 1}\text{.25 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 0}\text{.5} \right)\text{ }{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}$

$\Rightarrow {{\text{V}}_{\text{c}}}\text{ = 0}\text{.9375 }{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}$

Let us assume that $\text{n}$ wooden crates can be stored in the godown.

So, we can say that the volume of $\text{n}$ wooden crates will be the same as the volume of godown.

$\therefore \text{0}\text{.9375 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ n = 15000}$

$\Rightarrow \text{n = 16000}$

Therefore, we can easily store $\text{16000}$ wooden crates in the godown.

8. A solid cube of side $\text{12 cm}$ is cut into eight cubes of equal volume. What will be the side of the new cube? Also, find the ratio between their surface areas.

Ans:

Given side of cube $\text{a = 12 cm}$

Volume of this cube $\text{V = }{{\left( \text{a} \right)}^{\text{3}}}$

$\Rightarrow \text{V = }{{\left( \text{12 cm} \right)}^{\text{3}}}$

$\Rightarrow \text{V = 1728 c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}$

Let us assume the side of the smaller cube is $\text{x}$.

So, the volume of smaller cube $\text{= }\frac{\text{1728}}{\text{8}}\text{ = 216 c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}$

$\therefore {{\text{x}}^{\text{3}}}\text{ = 216 c}{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}$

$\Rightarrow \text{x = 6 cm}$

Hence, the side of the smaller cubes will be $\text{6 cm}$.

The ratio of the surface areas $\text{R = }\frac{\text{6}{{\text{a}}^{\text{2}}}}{\text{6}{{\text{x}}^{\text{2}}}}$

$\Rightarrow \text{R = }\frac{{{\left( \text{12} \right)}^{\text{2}}}}{{{\left( \text{6} \right)}^{\text{2}}}}$

$\Rightarrow \text{R = }\frac{\text{4}}{\text{1}}$

Therefore the ratio between the surface areas of the cubes is $\text{4 : 1}$.

9. A river $\text{3 m}$ deep and $\text{40 m}$ wide is flowing at the rate of $\text{3}$ km per hour. How much water will fall into the sea in a minute?

Ans:

Given the rate of flow of water $\text{R = 2 km/hr}$

$\Rightarrow \text{R = }\left( \frac{\text{2 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 1000}}{\text{60}} \right)\text{ m/min}$

$\Rightarrow \text{R = }\left( \frac{\text{100}}{3} \right)\text{ m/min}$

Given the depth of the river $\text{h = 3 m}$

Width of the river $\text{b = 40 m}$

The volume of water that will flow in \[\text{1 min}\] $\text{V = }\left( \frac{\text{100}}{\text{3}}\text{ }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 40 }\!\!\times\!\!\text{ 3} \right)\text{ }{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}$

$\Rightarrow \text{V = 4000 }{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}$

Therefore, $\text{4000 }{{\text{m}}^{\text{3}}}$ of water will fall into the sea in a minute.
