How i solve this important question of ncert class 1oth chapter surfaces areas and volumes. Give me the easiest and simplest way to solve the exercise 13.5 question number 1 . Also give me the best solution of this question.A copper wire, 3 mm in diameter, is wound about a cylinder whose length is 12 cm, and diameter 10 cm, so as to cover the curved surface of the cylinder.

1. Given that,

Diameter of cylinder = 10 cm

So, radius of the cylinder (r) = 10/2 cm = 5 cm

âˆ´ Length of wire in completely one round = 2Ï€r = 3.14Ã—5 cm = 31.4 cm

It is given that diameter of wire = 3 mm = 3/10 cm

âˆ´ The thickness of cylinder covered in one round = 3/10 m

Hence, the number of turns (rounds) of the wire to cover 12 cm will be-

Now, the length of wire required to cover the whole surface = length of wire required to complete 40 rounds

40 x 31.4 cm = 1256 cm

Radius of the wire = 0.3/2 = 0.15 cm

Volume of wire = Area of cross-section of wire Ã— Length of wire

= Ï€(0.15)2Ã—1257.14

= 88.898 cm3

We know,

Mass = Volume Ã— Density

= 88.898Ã—8.88

= 789.41 gm
