If you open math book you will find a lot of mathematical questions but you should have solve this question.

It is from class 10 rd sharma chapter 16 mensuration .

In this question we have to find number spherical lead shots each of diameter 4.2 cm can be obtained from a solid rectangular lead piece with dimensions 66 cm × 42 cm × 21 cm.

Given,

Radius of each spherical lead shot = r = 4.2/ 2 = 2.1 cm

The dimensions of the rectangular lead piece = 66 cm x 42 cm x 21 cm

So, the volume of a spherical lead shot = 4/3 πr3

= 4/3 x 22/7 x 2.13

And, the volume of the rectangular lead piece = 66 x 42 x 21

Thus,

The number of spherical lead shots = Volume of rectangular lead piece/ Volume of a spherical lead shot

= 66 x 42 x 21/ (4/3 x 22/7 x 2.13)

= 1500
