Ex 12.1, 3
A toy is in the form of a cone of radius 3.5 cm mounted on a hemisphere of same radius. The total height of the toy is 15.5 cm. Find the total surface area of the toy.
Total surface area of toy
= Curved Surface area of hemisphere
+ Curved Surface area of cone
Curved Surface area of hemisphere
Radius of hemisphere = radius of cone = r = 3.5 cm
Curved surface area of hemisphere = 2 2
= 2 22/7 (3.5)2
= 2 22/7 3.5 3.5
= 2 22 0.5 3.5
= 77 cm2
Curved surface area of cone
Curved surface area of cone =
Radius of cone = r = 3.5 cm
Height of cone = Total height of toy radius of hemisphere
= 15.5 3.5
= 12 cm
Now, we find slant height (l)
We know that
l2 = h2 + r2
l2 = (12)2 + (3.5)2
l2 = (12)2 + (7/2)^2
l2 = 144 + 49/4
l2 = (144(4) + 49)/4
l2 = (576 + 49)/4
l2 = 625/4
l = (625/4)
l = ( 25 ^2/2^2 )
l = 25/2
l = 12.5 cm
Curved surface area of cone = r
= 22/7 3.5 12.5
= 22 0.5 12.5
= 137.5 cm2
Total surface area of toy
= Curved Surface Area of hemisphere
+ Curved Surface Area of cone
= 77 + 137.5
= 214.5 cm2
Hence, total surface area of the toy = 214.5 cm2
