Given data is as follows:

 h = 21 m

Diameter = 6 m

Plastering rate = Rs.9.50/m2

We have to find the volume and the cost of plastering the inner surface of this well.

Given is the diameter, which is 6 m. Therefore,


r = 3

We know that,

Volume =`pir^2h`

=`22/7 xx 3xx3xx21`

Volume = 594 m3

We know that,

Curved Surface Area = `2pirh`

= `2 xx 22/7 xx 3 xx 21`

Curved Surface Area =396 m2

Total cost of plastering = ( Curved Surface Area ) × (Plastering rate )

                                    =396 × 9.50

                                    = 3762

Therefore, the volume of this well is 594 m3 and cost of plastering its inner surface is Rs.3762.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
