We have a solid composed of cylinder with hemispherical ends.

Radius of the two curved surfaces(r) = 7 cm

Height of cylinder is h.

Total height of the body(h + 2r) = 104 cm

So, total surface area is given by,

Total surface area = Curved surface area of cylinder +2(Curves surface area of hemisphere)


= 2πr(h+2r)

=2(3.14)(7)(104) cm2

=4571.84 cm2

Change the units of curved surface area as,

Total surface area = `4571.87/100 dm^2`

= 45.7184 dm2

Cost of polishing the surface is Rs 10 per dm2.

So total cost,

= Rs(45.7184)(10)

= Rs 457.18
