Ex 11.4, 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.
Inner radius = r1 = 1 m
Outer radius = r2 = 1 m + 1 cm
= 1 m + 1/100 m
= 1 m + 0.01 m
= 1.01 m
Volume of iron used = Volume of outer hemisphere
Volume of inner hemisphere
= 2/3 r23 2/3 r13
= 2/3 (r23 r13 )
= 2/3 22/7 [(1.01)3 (1)3] m3
= 44/21 (1.030301 1) m3
= (44/21 0.030301) m3
= 0.06348 m3
