Question

A hemisphere of lead of radius 7 cm is cast into a right circular cone of height 49 cm. Find the radius of the base.

Solution

Given radius of hemisphere = 7cm = `r_1`
Height of cone h = 49cm 
Volume of hemisphere = Volume of cone 

⇒ `2/3πr_1^3 = 1/3πr_2^2h`

⇒ `2/3xx7^3=1/3r_2^2xx49`

⇒ `(2xx7xx7xx7xx3)/(3xx49)=r_2^2`

⇒`r_2^2=3.74cm`

∴ Radius of the base =3.74cm.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
