# A rocket is in the form of a circular cylinder closed at the lower end with a cone of the same radius attached to the top. The cylinder is of radius 2.5 m and height 21 m and the cone has the slant height 8 m. Calculate the total surface area and the volume of the rocket.

In this question we have to find the the total surface area
and the volume of the rocket given that a rocket is in the form
of a circular cylinder closed at the lower end with a
cone of the same radius attached to the top. The cylinder
is of radius 2.5 m andheight 21 m and the cone has the slant height 8 m.

This question is from r d sharma class 10 maths.
I found this question while doing maths class 10.
I need help in getting the solution.

1. Given,

Radius of the cylindrical portion of the rocket (R) = 2.5 m

Height of the cylindrical portion of the rocket (H) = 21 m

Slant Height of the Conical surface of the rocket (L) = 8 m

Curved Surface Area of the Cone (S1) = πRL = π(2.5)(8)= 20π

And,

Curved Surface Area of the Cone (S2) = 2πRH + πR2

S2 = (2π × 2.5 × 21) + π (2.5)2

S2 = (π × 105) + (π × 6.25)

Thus, the total curved surface area S is

S = S1 + S2

S = (π20) + (π105) + (π6.25)

S = (22/7)(20 + 105 + 6.25) = 22/7 x 131.25

S = 412.5 m2

Therefore, the total Surface Area of the Conical Surface = 412.5 m2

Now, calculating the volume of the rocket

Volume of the conical part of the rocket (V1) = 1/3 × 22/7 × R2 × h

V1 = 1/3 × 22/7 × (2.5)2 × h

Let, h be the height of the conical portion in the rocket.

We know that,

L2 = R2 + h2

h2 = L2 – R2 = 82 – 2.52

h = 7.6 m

Using the value of h, we will get

Volume of the conical part (V1) = 1/3 × 22/7 × 2.52 × 7.6 m2 = 49.67 m2

Next,

Volume of the Cylindrical Portion (V2) = πR2h

V2 = 22/7 × 2.52 × 21 = 412.5 m2

Thus, the total volume of the rocket = V1 + V2

V = 412.5 + 49.67 = 462.17 m2

Hence, the total volume of the Rocket is 462.17 m2
