#### Solution

\[\text{ Let r be the radius of the circular cylinder } . \]

\[\text{ Height, h = 10 . 5 cm } \]

\[\text{ Area of the curved surface, } S_1 = 2\pi r h\]

\[ \text{ Sum of the areas of its two circular faces, } S_2 = 2\pi r^2 \]

\[ \text{ According to question } : \]

\[ 3 S_2 = 2 S_1 \]

\[3 \times 2 \pi r^2 = 2 \times 2\pi rh\]

\[ 6r = 4h\]

\[ 3r = 2h\]

\[ r = \frac{2}{3} \times 10 . 5 cm\]

\[ = 7 cm\]
