# Solution for The Radius of a Sphere Shrinks from 10 to 9.8 Cm. Find Approximately the Decrease in Its Volume ? - CBSE (Commerce) Class 12 - Mathematics

#### Question

The radius of a sphere shrinks from 10 to 9.8 cm. Find approximately the decrease in its volume ?

#### Solution

$\text { Let r be the radius of the sphere }.$

$r = 10 cm$

$r + ∆ r = 9 . 8 cm$

$\Rightarrow ∆ r = 10 . 0 - 9 . 8 = 0 . 2 cm$

$\text { Volume of the sphere,} V = \frac{4}{3}\pi r^3$

$\Rightarrow \frac{dV}{dr} = \frac{4}{3}\pi \times 3 r^2 = 4\pi r^2$

$\Rightarrow \left( \frac{dV}{dr} \right)_{r = 10 cm} = 4\pi \left( 10 \right)^2 = 400\pi {cm}^3 /cm$

$\text{ Change in the volume of the sphere,} ∆ V = \frac{dV}{dr} \times dr = 400\pi \times 0 . 2 = 80\pi \ {cm}^3$

Is there an error in this question or solution?
