A water tank is hemispherical below and cylindrical at the top. If the radius is 12m and capacity is 3312*pi cubic metre the height of the cylindrical portion in metres is:        


Let h be the height.

Volume 3312 pi = 12*12 pi h + 2/3*pi* 12*12*12

Dividing this by 12*12 pi

23 = h + 2/3*12
23- 8 = h
ie., h = 15

Is it not the correct answer? whether this answer has been given ?

Ques No.2
Let the radii of the 3 spheres be r1, r2 and r3
r1 =6, r2 = 8 and r3= 10

let the radius of the  new sphere formed after melting the above 3 spheres be r. the volume of the new sphere will be the total volume of the 3 spheres with radius r1, r2 and r3

ie., 4/3 pi r cube = 4/3 pi ( r1 cube+r2 cube+r3 cube)

dividing by 4/3 pi
r cube  = r1 cube+r2 cube+ r3 cube  = 6*6*6 + 8*8*8 + 10*10*10 = 216+512+1000 =1728

Since 12* 12*12= 1728
r = 12

6) let no. of students =100

total marks of all students = 80 *100 = 8000 no. of students

10% students scored= 95 marks
total marks of 10% students = 95 * (10/100*100) = 950


total marks of 20% students = 90*20 = 1800

marks of remaining students = 8000-1800-950 = 5250 which are the total marks of remaining students

remaining students = 70

Av. of remaining= 5250/70
= 75 ANS.

equilateral triangle is increasing at a rate of √3 cm/min. find the rate at which its area increasing when its edge is 12 cm long.

Assuming that the question says each side of equilateral triangle is increasing at a rate of √3 cm/min

area of an equilateral triangle, A = √3a^2/4 where a is the length of a side
Area as a function of x, A(x) = √3a^2/4
A'(x) = √3a/2

when a=12, A'(x) = √3 * 12/2 = 6√3
Required rate = 6√3 cm2/min
