  1. Dimensions of the cuboid = 15 cm× 10 cm × 3.5 cm

    Volume of the cuboid = 15×10×3.5 = 525 cm3

    Radius of each depression, r = 0.5 cm

    Depth, h = 1.4 cm

    Volume of conical depression = (1/3)r2h

    = (1/3)×(22/7)×0.52×1.4

    = 22×0.25×1.4/21

    = 7.7/21 cm3

    Volume of 4 such conical depressions = 4×7.7/21

    = 1.467 cm3

    Volume of wood in the stand = Volume of the cuboid- Volume of 4 conical depressions

    = 525-1.467

    = 523.533

    = 523.53 cm3

    Hence the volume of the wood in the stand is 523.53 cm3.
