A hemispherical tank is made up of an iron sheet 1 cm thick. If the inner radius is 1 m, then find the volume of the iron used to make the tank.

`["Assume "pi=22/7]`




Inner radius (r1) of hemispherical tank = 1 m

Thickness of hemispherical tank = 1 cm = 0.01 m

Outer radius (r2) of hemispherical tank = (1 + 0.01) m = 1.01 m

`"Volume of iron used to make such a tank "=2/3pi(r_2^3-r_1^3)`


                                                                 `= [44/21xx(1.030301-1)]m^3`

                                                                  = 0.06348 m3              (approximately)
