The radius of hemisphere and the radius of cone (r) = 3.5 cm,

Total height of the solid is 9.5 cm.

height of hemisphere is equal to the radius of hemisphere.

Height of the cone = Total height of solid – height of hemisphere

Height of the cone (h) = 9.5 – 3.5 = 6 cm

Volume of the solid = Volume of the hemisphere + Volume of the cone

Volume of the solid =

Substitute respective values.

Volume of the solid =

Volume of the solid =

Volume of the solid = 89.83+77

Volume of the solid = 166.83

∴ Volume of the solid is 166.83 cm³
