#### Question

A heap of wheat is in the form of a cone of diameter 9 m and height 3.5 m. Find its volume. How much canvas cloth is required to just cover the heap? (Use 𝜋 = 3.14).

#### Solution

Diameter of heap d =9m

Radius =9/2m=4.5 m

Height (h)=3.5m

Volume of heap =1/3pir^2h

=1/3[3.14xx(4.5)^2xx3.5]m^3

=74.18m^3

Slant height l=sqrt(r^2+h^2)=sqrt((4.5)^2+(3.5)^2)

= 5.70m.

Area of canvas required= CSA of cone

= pirl

= 3.14xx4.5xx5.7m^2

= 80.54m^2

Is there an error in this question or solution?
