#### Solution

External diameter of hollow cylinder=20 cm

Therefore , radius=10 cm

Thickness =0.25 cm

Hence, Internal radius=(10-0.25)=9.75 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`

Therefore, radius (r)=1 cm

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`

Concept: Volume of a Cylinder
