### The total surface area of a solid right circular cylinder whose radius is half its height h is equal to

• A.

3/2πh^2 sq.cm

• B.

3/2πhsq.cm

• C.

2/3πh^2 sq.cm

Explanation
The total surface area of a solid right circular cylinder is given by the formula 2πrh + 2πr^2, where r is the radius and h is the height. In this case, the radius is half the height, so we can substitute r = h/2 into the formula. Plugging in these values, we get 2π(h/2)(h) + 2π(h/2)^2 = πh^2 + πh^2/2 = 3/2πh^2. Therefore, the correct answer is 3/2πh^2 sq.cm.

### If the total surface area a solid right circular cylinder is 200 π and its radius is 5 cm , then the sum of its height and radius is

• A.

20cm

• B.

25cm

• C.

30 cm

• D.

15 cm

Correct Answer
A. 20cm
Explanation
The total surface area of a solid right circular cylinder is given by the formula 2πr(r+h), where r is the radius and h is the height. In this case, the total surface area is given as 200π and the radius is given as 5 cm. We can substitute these values into the formula and solve for the sum of the height and radius. 2π(5)(5+h) = 200π. Simplifying the equation, we get 10(5+h) = 100, which simplifies further to 50 + 10h = 100. Solving for h, we get h = 5. Therefore, the sum of the height and radius is 5 + 5 = 10 cm.

• D.

90 〖cm〗^3

Correct Answer
A. 40 〖cm〗^3
Explanation
The volume of a right circular cone is equal to one-third the volume of a right circular cylinder with the same base area and height. Since the radius and height of the cone and cylinder are equal, the base area and height of both shapes are also equal. Therefore, the volume of the cone is one-third of the volume of the cylinder, which is 120 cm^3. Hence, the volume of the cone is 40 cm^3.

### If the diameter and height of a right circular cone are 12 cm and 8 cm  respectively , then the slant height is

• A.

10 cm

• B.

20 cm

• C.

30 cm

• D.

96 cm

Correct Answer
A. 10 cm
Explanation
The slant height of a right circular cone can be found using the Pythagorean theorem. The slant height is the hypotenuse of a right triangle formed by the height, the radius (which is half the diameter), and the slant height. In this case, the height is 8 cm and the radius is 6 cm (half of the diameter of 12 cm). Using the Pythagorean theorem, we can calculate the slant height as follows: slant height = √(8^2 + 6^2) = √(64 + 36) = √100 = 10 cm. Therefore, the correct answer is 10 cm.

• B.

1200 π〖cm〗^2

• C.

300 π〖cm〗^2

• D.

600〖cm〗^2

Correct Answer
A. 600 π〖cm〗^2
Explanation
The formula for the curved surface area of a cone is given by πrℓ, where r is the radius of the base and ℓ is the slant height. In this question, the circumference at the base is given as 120π cm, which means the radius is 120π/2π = 60 cm. The slant height is given as 10 cm. Plugging these values into the formula, we get π(60)(10) = 600π cm^2. Therefore, the curved surface area of the cone is 600π cm^2.

### If the volume and the base area of a right circular cone 48  π and 12 π   Respectively, then the height of the cone is

• A.

12 cm

• B.

10 cm

• C.

8 cm

• D.

6 cm

Correct Answer
A. 12 cm
Explanation
The volume of a cone is given by the formula V = (1/3)πr^2h, where r is the radius of the base and h is the height of the cone. The base area of the cone is given by the formula A = πr^2. Given that the volume is 48π and the base area is 12π, we can set up the following equation: (1/3)πr^2h = 48π and πr^2 = 12π. By dividing the second equation by π, we get r^2 = 12. Taking the square root of both sides, we get r = √12 = 2√3. Substituting this value of r into the first equation, we get (1/3)π(2√3)^2h = 48π. Simplifying, we get (1/3)(4)(3)h = 48. Solving for h, we get h = 12 cm.

### If the height and the base area of a right circular cone are 5 cm and 48 sq.cm respectively, then the volume cone is

• A.

80〖cm〗^3

• B.

240〖cm〗^3

• C.

120 〖cm〗^3

• D.

480〖cm〗^3

Correct Answer
A. 80〖cm〗^3
Explanation
The volume of a cone can be calculated using the formula V = (1/3)πr^2h, where r is the radius of the base and h is the height of the cone. In this case, the base area is given as 48 sq.cm, which means the radius can be calculated as √(48/π) cm. Since the height is given as 5 cm, we can substitute these values into the formula to find the volume. After performing the calculations, we find that the volume of the cone is 80 cm^3.

### The ratio of the respective height and the respective radii of two cylinders are 1:2 and 2:1 respectively then the respective volumes are in the ratio

• A.

2:1

• B.

4:1

• C.

1:4

• D.

1:2

Correct Answer

Explanation
The respective volumes of the two cylinders can be found by multiplying the respective heights and the respective radii squared. Since the ratio of the heights is 1:2 and the ratio of the radii is 2:1, we can calculate the ratio of the volumes as (1/2)^2 : (2/1)^2, which simplifies to 1:4. Therefore, the correct answer is 1:4.

### The total surface area of a solid hemisphere of diameter 2 cm is equal to

• A.

3 π〖cm〗^2

• B.

4 π〖cm〗^2

• C.

12π〖cm〗^2

• D.

12〖cm〗^2

Correct Answer
A. 3 π〖cm〗^2
Explanation
The total surface area of a solid hemisphere can be calculated by adding the curved surface area of the hemisphere and the area of the circular base. The curved surface area of a hemisphere is given by half the surface area of a sphere, which is 2πr^2. The area of the circular base is given by πr^2.

In this case, the diameter of the hemisphere is 2 cm, so the radius is 1 cm.

The curved surface area of the hemisphere is 2π(1^2) = 2π cm^2.
The area of the circular base is π(1^2) = π cm^2.

Adding these two areas together, we get 2π + π = 3π cm^2.

Therefore, the correct answer is 3π cm^2.

• A.

3/4 cm

• B.

4/3 cm

• C.

3/2 cm

• D.

2/3 cm

Correct Answer
A. 3/4 cm
Explanation
The volume of a sphere is given by the formula V = (4/3)πr^3, where V is the volume and r is the radius. In this case, the volume is given as π cu.cm. By equating the given volume to the formula, we can solve for the radius. Rearranging the formula, we get r^3 = (3/4) cu.cm. Taking the cube root of both sides, we find that r = 3/4 cm. Therefore, the correct answer is 3/4 cm.

Correct Answer
A. 5 cm
Explanation
The surface area of a sphere is given by the formula 4πr^2, where r is the radius of the sphere. In this case, the surface area is given as 100π. By equating the formula to the given surface area, we can solve for the radius. 4πr^2 = 100π. Dividing both sides by 4π, we get r^2 = 25. Taking the square root of both sides, we find that r = 5. Therefore, the radius of the sphere is 5 cm.

### If the surface area of a sphere is 36π , then the volume of the sphere is

• A.

36π〖cm〗^3

• B.

12π〖cm〗^3

• C.

72π 〖cm〗^3

• D.

108π〖cm〗^3

Correct Answer
A. 36π〖cm〗^3
Explanation
The formula for the surface area of a sphere is 4πr^2, where r is the radius of the sphere. In this case, the surface area is given as 36π. By equating this to the formula, we can solve for r: 4πr^2 = 36π. Dividing both sides by 4π gives us r^2 = 9, and taking the square root of both sides gives r = 3.

The formula for the volume of a sphere is (4/3)πr^3. Plugging in the value of r as 3, we get (4/3)π(3^3) = 36π. Therefore, the volume of the sphere is 36π cm^3.

Correct Answer
A. 1:8
Explanation
If the radius of one sphere is half of the radius of another sphere, their respective volumes can be calculated using the formula V = (4/3)πr^3. Since the radius is half, the volume of the smaller sphere will be (4/3)π(1/2r)^3 = (1/8)(4/3)πr^3. This means that the volume of the smaller sphere is 1/8th of the volume of the larger sphere. Therefore, the correct answer is 1:8.
