# A solid is composed of a cylinder with hemispherical ends. If the complete length of the solid is 104 cm and the radius of each of the hemispherical ends is 7 cm, find the cost of polishing its surface at the rate of Rs.10 per dm2.

I would like to give a question which
i could not solve.Rd sharma class 10
maths exercise-16.2 mensuration.

In this question we have to find the cost of
polishing its surface at the rate of Rs.10 per dm2.
Given that a solid is composed of a cylinder with
hemispherical ends. If the complete length of the
solid is 104 cm and the radius of each of the hemispherical ends is 7 cm.

1. Given,

Radius of the hemispherical end (r) = 7 cm

Height of the solid = (h + 2r) = 104 cm

â‡’ h + 2r = 104

â‡’ h = 104 âˆ’ (2 Ã— 7)

So, h = 90 cm

We know that,

The curved surface area of the cylinder (S1) = 2 Ï€r h

S1= 2 Ï€(7)(90)

S1 = 3960 cm2

Next,

Curved surface area of the two hemisphere (S2) = 2 (2Ï€r2)

S2 = 2 x 2Ï€(7)2

S2 = 616 cm2

Therefore,

The total curved surface area of the solid (S) = Curved surface area of the cylinder + Curved surface area of the two hemispheres

S = S1 + S2

S = 3960 + 616

S = 4576 cm2 = 45.76 dm2

Given that the cost of polishing the 1 dm2 surface of the solid is Rs. 10

So, the cost of polishing the 45.76 dm2 surface of the solid = Rs (10 x 45.76) = Rs. 457.6

Therefore,

The cost of polishing the whole surface of the solid is Rs. 457.60
