**Exercise 12.2 **

**Very Short Answer Type Questions:**

**Write whether True or False and justify your answer.**

**Question. 1 **Two identical solid hemispheres of equal base radius *r* cm are stuck together along their bases. The total surface area of the combination is 6*πr*^{2}*.*

**Solution. ****False**

**Explanation:**

When two solid hemispheres of same base radius *r *are joined together along their bases then the new solid formed is a sphere with the same radius *r*.

∴Total surface area of sphere = 4*πr*^{2}

**Question. 2 **A solid cylinder of radius *r *and height *h *is placed over other cylinder of same height and radius. The total surface area of the shape so formed is 4* πrh* + 4

*π*

*r*

^{2}.

**Solution. ****False**

**Explanation:**

When a solid cylinder of radius *r *and height *h *is placed over other cylinder of same height and radius, we will egt a new cylinder with same radius *r *and height 2*h*.

**Question. 3 **A solid cone of radius *r *and height *h* is placed over a solid cylinder having same base radius and height as that of a cone. The total surface area of the combined solid is

**Solution. ****False**

**Explanation: **

Here a solid cone of radius *r *and height *h* is placed over a solid cylinder having same base radius and height as that of a cone.

Total surface area of the combined solid = Curved surface area of cone + Curved surface area of cylinder + Area of the base of cylinder

**Question. 4 **A solid ball is exactly fitted inside the cubical box of side *a*. The volume of the ball is4/3*π*r^{3}.

**Solution. ****False**

**Explanation:**

**Solution. ****False**

**Explanation: **

Given, a frustum of cone with *h *its vertical height and *r*_{1 }and *r*_{2} are the radii of its two ends.

**Solution**. **True**

**Explanation:**

**Solution**. **False**

**Explanation: **

Given, a frustum with* *its vertical height *h* and *r*_{1} and *r*_{2} the radii of its two ends.

**Question. 8 **An open metallic bucket is in the shape of a frustum of a cone, mounted on a hollow cylindrical base made of the same metallic sheet. The surface area of the metallic sheet used is equal to curved surface area of frustum of a cone + area of circular base + curved surface area of cylinder.'

**Solution**. **True**

**Explanation:**

Given, a bucket which is in shape of a frustum is mounted on a hollow cylindrical base.

The surface area of the metallic sheet used to form given vessel will be equal to the total surface area of cylinder excluding the top and the curved surface area of frustrum of a cone.

∴ Total surface area of vessel = Curved surface area of frustrum + Curved surface area of cylinder + Area of base cylinder (Circular base of cylinder)
