Solution

Radius (r) of heap = (10.5/2)m = 5.25 m

Height (h) of heap = 3 m

`"Volume of heap "=1/3pir^2h`

`=(1/3xx22/7xx(5.25)^2xx3)m^3`

= 86.625 m3

Therefore, the volume of the heap of wheat is 86.625 m3.

Area of canvas required = CSA of cone

`=pirl=pirsqrt(r^2+h^2)`

`=[22/7xx5.25xxsqrt((5.25)^2+(3)^2)]m^2`

`=(22/7xx5.25xx6.05)m^2`

= 99.825 m2

Therefore, 99.825 m2 canvas will be required to protect the heap from rain.
