**Exercise 12.3 **

**Short Answer Type Questions (Q. No. 8-14):**

**Question. 8 **Two solid cones *A *and *B *are placed in a cylindrical tube as shown in the figure. The ratio of their capacities is 2:1. Find the height and capacities of cones. Also, find the volume of the remaining portion of the cylinder.

** **

Given, the ratio of their capacities is 2:1.

So, let volume of Cone I* *be 2*V *and volume of Cone II* *be *V. *

Again, let height of the Cone I = *h*_{1} cm

Then height of Cone II* = *(21 - *h*_{1}) cm

Given, diameter of the cones = 6cm

**Question. 9 **An ice-cream cone full of ice-cream having radius 5cm and height 10cm as shown in figure given below. Calculate the volume of ice-cream, provided that its 1/6 part is Left unfilled with ice-cream.

**Solution**.

Given, ice-cream cone is the combination of a cone of radius 5 cm and height 10 cm and a hemisphere of radus 5 cm.

**Question. 10 **Marbles of diameter1.4cm are dropped into a cylindrical beaker of diameter 7cm containing some Water. Find the number of marbles that should be dropped into the beaker, so that the water level rises by 5.6cm.

**Solution**.

When marbles are dropped in beaker containing some water, the volume of water raised in beaker will be equal to the volume of total marbles.

**Question. 11 **How many spherical lead shots each of diameter 4.2cm can be obtained from a solid rectangular lead piece with dimensions 66cm, 4cm and 21cm?

**Solution**.

Hence, the required number of spherical lead shots is 1500.

**Question. 12 **How many spherical lead shots of diameter 4cm can be made out of a solid cube of lead whose edge measures 44cm.

**Solution**.

**Question. 13 **A wall 24m long, 0.4m thick and 6m high is constructed with the bricks in each of the dimensions 25cm × 16cm × 10cm. If the mortar occupies 1/10th of the volume of the wall, then find the number of bricks used in constructing the wall.

**Solution**.

Given, length of wall, *l* = 24m,

Thickness of wall, *b* = 0.4m, and

Height of wall, *h* = 6m

Hence, the required number of bricks used in constructing the wall is 12960.

**Question. 14 **Find the number of metallic circular disc with 1.5cm base diameter and of height 0.2cm to be melted to form a right circular cylinder of height 10 cm and diameter 4.5cm.

**Solution**.

Given, height of each circular disc, *i.e*., a circular cylinder,* h* = 0.2cm

And diameter of each circular disc = 1.5cm
