#### Solution

Height (*h*) of cylindrical tank = 1 m

Base radius (*r*) of cylindrical tank = (140/2)cm = 70cm = 0.7m

`"Area of sheet required = Total surface area of tank "=2pir(r + h)`

`= [2xx22/7xx0.7(0.7+1)]m^2`

`= (4.4xx1.7)m^2`

`= 7.48m^2`

Therefore, it will require 7.48 m^{2 }area of sheet.
