This is one of the important question from the cbse board exam point of view because in 2015 cbse board exam this question was asked. Question number 23 from RS Aggarwal book page number 811, exercise 17B, chapter volume and surface area of solid.

1. We have,

height of cone, h = 60 cm = 0.6 m

the base radius of cone, r = 30 cm = 0.3 m

the height of cylinder, H = 180 cm = 1.8 m

the base radius of the cylinder, R = 60 = 0.6 m

Now,

Volume of water left in the cylinder

Volume of the cone = 1/3 Ï€rÂ²h

= 1/3 Ï€(0.3)Â²(0.6)

= 0.018Ï€ mÂ³

volume of the cylinder = Ï€RÂ²H

= Ï€(0.6)Â²(1.8)

= 0.648Ï€ mÂ³

water left in cylinder = volume of the cylinder – volume of the cone

= 0.648Ï€ – 0.018Ï€

= 1.98 mÂ³

âˆ´Â volume of water left in the cylinder is 1.98 mÂ³
