Solution

Radius of the road roller, r = `1.4/2` = 0.7 m
Length of the road roller, h = 2.1 m
∴ Area levelled by the road roller in one rotation = Curved surface area of the road roller
= 2πrh
= 2 x `22/7` x 0.7 x 2.1
= 9.24 m2

∴ Area of the ground levelled by the road roller = Area levelled by the road roller in 500 rotations
= 500 × Area levelled by the road roller in one rotation
= 500 × 9.24
= 4620 m2

Rate of levelling the ground = Rs 7/m2
∴ Cost of levelling the ground
= Area of the ground levelled by the road roller × Rate of levelling the ground
= 4620 × 7
= Rs 32,340

Thus, the area of ground levelled by the road roller is 4620 m2 and the cost of levelling the ground is Rs 32,340.
