Solution

To find the total capacity of the tank, we have to add the volume of the cylinder and cone.

Diameter of the cylinder, d = 21 cm

Radius of the cylinder, `r=d/2=21/2cm`

 Height of the cylinder, h1 = 18cm

Also, radius of cone, `r =21/2cm` 

Height of the cone, h2 = 9 cm

now,

Total capacity of the tank= Volume of the cylinder + Volume of 2 cones

`pir^2h_1+2xx1/3pir^2h^2`

`=pir^2(h_1+2/3h_2)`

`=22/7xx(21/2)^2xx(18+2/3xx9)`

`22/7xx(21/2)^2xx24`

= 8316 cm3

Hence the total capacity of the tank is 8316 cm3.
