Solution for 504 cones, each of diameter 3.5 cm and height 3 cm, are melted and recast into a metallic sphere. Find the diameter of the sphere and hence find its surface area. - CBSE Class 10 - Mathematics

Question

504 cones, each of diameter 3.5 cm and height 3 cm, are melted and recast into a metallic sphere. Find the diameter of the sphere and hence find its surface area.
[Use π=22/7]

Solution

No. of cones = 504
Diameter of a cone = 3.5 cm
Radius of the cone, r = 1.75 cm
Height of the cone, h = 3 cm
Volume of a cone

`=1/3pir^2h`

`=1/3xxpixx(3.5/2)^2xx3`

`=1/3xxpixx3.5/2xx3.5/2xx3  " cm"^2`

Volume of 504 cones

`=504xx1/3xxpixx3.5/2xx3.5/2xx3  " cm"^2`

Let the radius of the new sphere be ‘R’.
Volume of the sphere `=4/3 pir^3 `
Volume of 504 cones = Volume of the sphere

`504xx1/3xxpixx3.5/2xx3.5/2xx3=4/3 piR^3`

`(504xx1xxpixx3.5xx3.5xx3xx3)/(3xx2xx2xx4xxpi)=R^3`

`R^3=(504xx3xx49)/64`

`R^3=(8xx27xx7^3)/64`

`R=(2xx3xx7)/4`

`R=21/2=10.5 cm`

Radius of the new sphere = 10.5 cm
