Solution:

2. Find the amount of water displaced by a solid spherical ball of diameter

(i) 28 cm                                     (ii) 0.21 m

Solution:

3. The diameter of a metallic ball is 4.2 cm. What is the mass of the ball, if the density of the metal is 8.9 g per cm3 ?

Solution:

4. The diameter of the moon is approximately one-fourth of the diameter of the earth. What fraction of the volume of the earth is the volume of the moon?

Solution:

Let diameter of earth = x

5. How many litres of milk can a hemispherical bowl of diameter 10.5 cm hold?

Solution:

Diameter = 10.5 ,  radius = 5.25

6. A hemispherical tank is made up of an iron sheet 1 cm thick. If the inner radius is 1 m, then find the volume of the iron used to make the tank.

Solution:

7. Find the volume of a sphere whose surface area is 154 cm2.

Solution:

Surface area = 154 cm2

8. A dome of a building is in the form of a hemisphere. From inside, it was white-washed at the cost of 498.96. If the cost of white-washing is 2.00 per square metre, find the

(i) inside surface area of the dome, (ii) volume of the air inside the dome.

Solution:

9. Twenty seven solid iron spheres, each of radius r and surface area S are melted to form a sphere with surface area S2. Find the

(i) radius r2 of the new sphere,                  (ii) ratio of S and S2.

Solution:

R = r
