Question 4 Volume And Surface Area Of Solids Exercise 15B

A soft drink is available in two packs:

A tin can with a rectangular base of length 5cm, breadth 4cm and height 15cm,

Which container has greater capacity and by how much?

In general, the volume of a cube is equal to the amount of space occupied by its shape. It is determined by the cuboid's three dimensions: length, breadth, and height.

The dimensions for a tin can with a rectangular base is

Length = 5cm

Height = 15cm

We know that

Volume of tin can = l × b × h

By substituting the values

Volume of tin can = 5 × 4 × 15

So we get

Volume of tin can = 300 cm3

Therefore, a plastic cylinder has greater capacity than a tin can by 85 cm3. Related Questions
