What Length of Solid Cylinder 2 Cm in Diameter Must Be Taken to Recast into a Hollow Cylinder of External Diameter 20 Cm, 0.25 Cm Thickand 15 Cm Long? - Mathematics

Sum

What length of solid cylinder 2 cm in diameter must be taken to recast into a hollow cylinder of external diameter 20 cm, 0.25 cm thickand 15 cm long?

Solution

External diameter of hollow cylinder=20 cm

Thickness =0.25 cm

Length of cylinder (h)=15 cm

∴"volume "=pih(R^2-r^2)=pixx15(10^2-9.75^2)

=15pi(100-95.0625)cm^3

= 15pixx4.9375 cm^3

Diameter = 2cm

Let h be the lenght

"then, volume"= pir^2h=pi(1xx1)h=pih

Now, according to given condition:

pih=15pixx4.9375

⇒ h=15xx4.9375

⇒h=74.0625

"Length of cylinder" =74.0625 cm

Is there an error in this question or solution?
