Surface Area and Volume of 3D Solids Exercise 18(a) Solution :

Question no – (1)

Solution :

(a) Cuboid whose dimensions are = 3 m, 4 m 5m

Surface area of cuboids

= 2 (3 × 4 + 4 × 5 + 5 × 3) m2

= 2 (12 + 20 + 15)m2

= 2 × 47 m2

= 94 m2

Hence, the surface area of the cuboid will be 94 m2

(b) Cuboid whose dimensions are = 4 cm, 1.7 cm, 2.3 cm.

Surface area of cuboid,

= 2(4 × 1.7 + 1.7 × 2.3 + 2.3 × 4) cm2

= 2 (6.8 + 3.9 + 9.2)cm2

= 2 × 19.91

= 39.82 cm2

Hence, the surface area of the cuboid will be 39.82 cm2

Question no – (2)

Solution :

(i) (a) Cube whose dimensions are =  7 cm.

Surface area of cube = 6a2

= 6 × (7)2

= 6 × 49 cm2

= 294 cm2

Hence, the surface area of the cube will be 294 cm2

(b) Cube whose dimensions are = 10 m

Surface area of cube,

= 6 × (10)2 m2

= 600 m2

Hence, the surface area of the cube will be 600 m2

(ii) As per the given question,

To make a model of a cube = 96 cm2 of board was used

Length of its edge,

= √Area/6

= √96/6

= √16

= 4 cm

Therefore, the length of one edge of the cube will be 4 cm.

(iii) Given in the question,

The total surface area of a cube is = 726 cm cm²

Length = √726/6

= √121 cm

= 11 cm

Thus, volume of the cube will be 11 cm.

Question no – (3)

Solution :

(i) Volume of cuboid,

= (4 × 3 ×5) cm3

= 60 cm3

(ii) Volume of cuboids,

= (2 × 6 × 8) cm3

= 96 cm3

(iii) Volume of cuboids,

= (7 × 3 × 4) cm3

= 84 cm3

(iv) Volume of cuboids,

= (12 × 9 × 12) cm3

= 1296 cm3

(v) Volume of cuboids,

= 916 × 14 × 18) cm3

= 4032 cm3

(vi) Volume of cuboids,

= x × 28 × 24 = 25984

= x = 25984/28 × 24

= 7 cm

(vii) Volume of cuboids,

= 40 × 24 × x

= 2400 = 40 × 24 × x

= x = 2400/40 × 40

= 2.5 cm

= 5400/60 × 4

= 1.8 cm

Question no – (4)

Solution :

(i) Cuboid whose dimensions are = 2, 3 and 4 cm

Diagonal of cuboid,

= √(2)2 + 32 + (4)2

= √4 + 9 + 16

= √29

= 5.38 cm

Thus, the length of the diagonal of the cuboid will be 5.38 cm.

(ii) Cuboid whose dimensions are 3, 4 and 5 cm.

Diagonal of cuboid,

= √l2 + b2 + h2

= √32 + 42 + 52

= √9 + 16 + 25

= √50

= 707 cm

Hence, the length of the diagonal of the cuboid will be 707 cm.

Question no – (5)

Solution :

(i) – (a) Cube whose each edge is 2 m.

Length of diagonal,

= √3 × side

= √3 × 2

= 2 × 1.732

= 3.464 m

Volume of the cube,

= (2)3

= 8 cm3

(i) – (b) Cube whose each edge is 5 m

First, Length of diagonal

= √3 × side

= √3 × 5

= 5 × 91.732)

= 8.66 m

Now, Volume of the cube,

= (5)3

= 125 m3

(i) – (c) Cube whose each edge is 8 cm

First, Length of diagonal,

= √3 × 8

= 8 × (1,732)

= 13.86 cm

Now, Volume of the cube,

= (8)3 cm3

= (64 × 8) cm3

= 512 cm3

(ii) Cube edge is = 12 cm.

Volume of cube,

= (12)3 cm3

= 1728 cm3

Total surface area,

= 6 × (12)2

= 864 cm2

Hence, the volume of the cube is 1728 cm3 and total surface area of the cube is 864 cm2

Question no – (6)

Solution :

(i) – (a) Cubes whose volumes are 216 m³

Length of each edge,

= 3 √216

= 3√6 × 6 × 6

= (6 × 6 × 6 ) × 1/3

= (6)3 × 1/2

= 6 m

Thus, each edge of the cube will be 6 m.

(i) – (b) Cube whose volume is 2197 m³

Length of each edge,

= 3√2179

= (13)3 × 1/3

= 13 m

Each edge of the cube will be 13 m.

Cuboid Length,

= 1 m = 100 cm

= 0.5 m

Volume

= (100 × 50 × 50)

= 250000 cm³

Thus, the statement is True.

(iii) Let, height be ‘h’

Diagonal of cuboid = √l2 + b2 + h2

= 5√2 = √52 + 42 + h2

= 50 = 25 + 16 + h2

= h2 = 50 – 41

= 9

= h = 3 dm

Hence, the height of solid will be 3 dm.

Question no – (7)

Solution :

As per the question we get,

The volume of a rectangular solid is 3600cm3

length =  20 cm

Height = 9 cm

= 3600/20 × 9

= 20 cm

Therefore, width of the rectangular solid will be 20 cm.

Question no – (8)

Solution :

According to the question,

The length of rectangular solid = 25 cm

The breadth of rectangular solid =  20 cm.

The volume is = 7000 cm3

Height of rectangular solid,

= 70000/25 × 20

= 14 cm

Therefore, Height of rectangular solid will be 14 cm.

Question no – (9)

Solution :

First, Side of cube,

= 20/4

= 5 cm

Total surface area of cube,

= 6 × 52

= 150 cm2

Hence, the total area of the 6 faces will be 150 cm2

Question no – (10)

Solution :

First, Depth of gravel,

= 1 cm

= 1/100

Now, Volume gravel,

= 4800 × 1/100

= 48m3

Total cost,

= (48 × 4.80) Rs

= 230. 40 Rs

Hence, the cost of covering the playground will be 230. 40 Rs.

Question no – (11)

Solution :

First, Area of base,

= (7 × 6)m2

= 42m2

Now, Volume of the water in the tank,

= (42 × 5)

= 210 m2

Therefore,  210 mcubic metres of water are there in the tank.

Question no – (12)

Solution :

First, Volume of cuboid,

= 20 × 16 × 24

= 7680 cm3

Now, Volume of cube,

= (4)3 cm3

= 64 cm3

Number of cubes kept in the box,

= 7680/64

= 120

Therefore, 120, 4 cm cubes could be put into the box.

Question no – (13)

Solution :

Let, length = 5x, breadth = 4x, height = 2x

First, Surface area of cuboid,

= 2(5x + 4x + 2x + 2x + 5x)

= 2 × 38x2

= 76x2

= 76x2 = 1216

= x2 = 1216/76

= 16

= x = 4

∴ Length = 5x = 5 × 4 = 20 cm

∴ Breadth = 4x = 4 × 4 = 16 cm

∴ Height = 2x = 2 × 4 = 8 cm

Question no – (14)

Solution :

Here, level of water decreased,

= (5 – 3.80)m

= 1.20 m

Volume of water ruins out,

= l × b × h

= 40 × 7 × 1.20

= 336 m3

Therefore, 336 mcubic metre of water runs out.

Question no – (15)

Solution :

(i) Volume of board,

= (90 × 78 × 42) cm….(according to the question)

And, Rectangular block,

height = 2 1/2 cm = 5/2 cm

height,  = 1 1/2 cm = 3/2

Now, Volume of 1 block,

= (5/2 × 2 × 3/2)

= 15/2 cm2

Number of block packed  in the box,

= 9 × 78 × 42 × 2/15

= 39312

Thus, 39312 rectangular blocks can be packed.

(ii) Volume of cube = (4)3

= 64cm3

Number of cubes to be packed = 30 × 78 × 42/4

Now, length wise no of 4 complete cubes,

= 90/4

= 22

Breadth wise, no of complete cubes

= 78/4

= 19

Length wise,

= 42/4

= 10.5

= 10

Total No of cubes.

= (22 × 19 × 10)

= 4180

Therefore, 4180 cubes can be packed.

Question no – (16)

Solution :

First, Volume of water in the tank,

= (72 × 60 × 18)cm3

= 77760 cm3

Now, volume of rises,

= (48 × 36 × 15) cm3

= 25920 cm3

Water level rises,

= 25920/(72 × 60)

= 6 cm

Thus, the amount the water level rises is 6 cm.

Question no – (17)

Solution :

Here, Inner volume,

= (20 × 12.5 × 9.5) cm3

= 2375 cm3

And, outer length

= 20 + (2 × 1.25)

= 22.5 cm

= 12.5 (2 × 1.5)

= 15 cm

Outer height,

= 9.5 + (2 × 1.25)

= 12 cm

Volume,

= (22.5 × 15 × 12) cm3

= 4050 cm3

Volume of wood used,

= (4050 – 2375)

= 16575 cm3

Therefore, the volume of wood required will be16575 cm3

Question no – (19)

Solution :

First, Area of filed,

= (30 × 15)

= 540 m2

Now, Area of pit,

= (6 × 4)

= 24 cm2

Volume of dug filed,

= (6 × 4 × 3)

= 72 cm3

Area of the remaining field Living pit,

= (540 – 24)

= 516 m2

Rise level,

= 72/516 × 100 cm2

= 13.9 cm

Therefore, the rise in the level of the remaining area of the field will be 13.9 cm.

Question no – (20)

Solution :

First, Area of field,

= (20 × 14)

= 280 m2

Now, Area of face pit,

= (6 × 3)

= 18m2

Volume of dug out field,

= (6 × 3 × 2.5)

= 45 m3

Area of remaining excluding pit,

= (280 – 18)

= 262 m2

Height of field level,

= 45/262 m

= 45 × 100/262

= 17.18 m

Therefore, the field level will rise up to 17.18 m.

Question no – (22)

Solution :

After placing cube in container, volume of water,

= (6 × 6 × 1 + 2)

= (36 + 2) cm3

= 238 cm3

Therefore, the volume of the cube will be 238 cm3

Question no – (23)

Solution :

After joining, length,

= (8 + 8)

= 16 cm

height = 8 cm

Therefore, Surface area,

= 2 (16 × 8 + 8 × 8 + 8 × 16) cm2

= 2 (128 + 64 + 128)

= (2 × 320) cm2

= 640 cm2

Hence, the surface area of the resulting cuboid will be 640 cm2

Question no – (24)

Solution :

Let, cuboid length = l

Cuboid height = h

Now, from question,

= x = lh

= y = bh

= z = lb

∴ Volume = lbh

xyx = lb + bh + lh

= l2 b2h2 = (lbh)2

= v2 = xy2

Question no – (26)

Solution :

First, Total area of floor,

= (50 × 9)

= 450 m2

Now, Total volume of air of the room,

= (108 × 50)m3

= 5400 m3

And, length of room = 25 m

= 18 m

Height,

= 5400/25 × 18

= 12 m

Therefore, its breadth is 18 m and height is 12 m.

Question no – (27)

Solution :

Rectangular sheet,

Length = 42 cm

Breath = 36 cm

After cutting, length

= 42 – (2 × 6)

= 42 – 12

= 30 cm

Breadth = 36 – 2 × 6

= 24 cm

height = 6 cm

Volume,

= (30 × 24 × 6) cm3

= 4320 cm3

Therefore, the volume of the box will be 4320 cm3

Question no – (28)

Solution :

First, Edge of each cube,

= 3 √243

= (7)3 l/3

= 7 cm

After joining, length of cuboid = (7 + 7) cm

Height = 7 cm

Surface area of cuboid = 2 (lb + bh + hl)

= 2 (14 × 7 + 7 × 7 + 7 × 14) cm2

= 2 × (98 + 49 + 98)

= 2 × 245

= 490 cm2

Therefore, the surface area of the resulting cuboid will be 490 cm2
