From a Cubical Piece of Wood of Side 21 Cm, a Hemisphere is Carved Out in Such a Way that the Diameter of the Hemisphere is Equal to the Side of the Cubical Piece. Find the Surface Area - Mathematics


From a cubical piece of wood of side 21 cm, a hemisphere is carved out in such a way that the diameter of the hemisphere is equal to the side of the cubical piece. Find the surface area and volume of the remaining piece.

We have,

the edge of the cubical piece, a = 21 cm and 

the radius of the hemisphere, `r = a/2=21/2`

The surface area of the remaining piece = TSA of cube + CSA of hemisphere -Area of 

= 6a2 + 2πr2 - πr

= 6a2 + πr2

`= 6 xx 21xx21xx22/7xx21/5xx21/2`

`= 21xx21(6 + 22/(7+4))`

`= 21xx21(6+11/14)`


`= 21xx3(95/2)`

= 2992.5 cm2


Volume of the remaining piece = volume of the cube - volume of the hemisphere

`= a^3 - 2/3pir^3`

`= 21xx21xx21 - 2/3xx22/7xx(21/2)xx(21/2)xx(21/2)`

`= 21xx21xx21xx(1-2/3xx22/7xx1/2xx1/2xx1/2)`

`= 21xx21xx21(1/1 - 11/42)`


`= 21xx21xx(31/2)`

= 6835.5 cm3
