Question 38 (OR 1st question) A petrol tank is in the form of a frustum of a cone of height 20 m with diameters of its lower and upper ends as 20 m and 50 m respectively. Find the cost of petrol which can fill the tank completely at the rate of Rs. 70 per litre. Also find the surface area of the tank.
In order to find Cost of petrol,
we need to find volume (in litres)
Volume of container = Volume of frustum
= 1/3 πβ(π12+π22+π1π2)
Here
h = height = 20 m
r1 = radius of upper end = 25 m
r2 = radius of lower end = 10 m
Volume of container = 1/3 πβ(π12+π22+π1π2)
= 1/3Γ3.14Γ20Γ(252+γ10γ^2+25Γ10)
= (3.14 Γ 20)/3 (625 + 100 + 250)
= (3.14 Γ 20)/3 Γ 975
= 3.14 Γ 20 Γ 325
= 20410 m3
= 20410 Γ 1000 litre
= 2,04,10,000 litre
Now ,
Cost of 1 litre petrol = Rs 70
Cost of 2,04,10,000 litre petrol = Rs 70 Γ 20410000
1 m3 = 1000 litre
= Rs 1428700000
Now,
We need to find surface area of tank
Surface Area of tank
= Area of frustum
= π(π1+π2)π
Here,
r1 = 20 cm , r2 = 8 cm
We need to find l
We know that
π = β(β2+(π1βπ2)2)
π = β(202+(25β10)2)
π = β(202+(15)2)
π = β(400+225)
π = β625
π = β(γ25γ^2 )
π = 25 cm
Area of frustum = π(π1+π2)π
= 3.14 Γ (25+10)Γ25
= 3.14 Γ 35Γ25
= 2747.5 cm2
