A Toy is in the form of a hemisphere surmounted by a right circular cone of the same base radius as that of the hemisphere .If the radius of base of the cone is 21 cm and its volume is 2/3 of the volume of hemisphere calculate the height of cine and surface area of the toy.

  • maths -

    The missing part is the height of the cone, but it is 2/3 the volume of the hemisphere (semi-sphere).

    volume of hemisphere = (1/2 (4/3)π (21^3) = 6174π
    but the volume of the cone is 2/3 of that or 4116π

    vol of cone = (1/3)π r^2 h
    4116π = (1/3)π(21^2)h
    12348 = 441h
    h = 28

    Now use your formulas for surface area of a sphere, take half of that , and use your formula for the surface area of a cone with radius 21 and height 28
    Make sure NOT to include the circular base joining them when finding surface area
