Question 4 Mensuration Exercise 17.1

An electric geyser is cylindrical in shape, having a diameter of 35 cm and height 1.2m. Neglecting the thickness of its walls, calculate its outer lateral surface area.



The curved surface area of a cylinder (CSA) is also known as the lateral surface area and is defined as the area of the curved surface of any given cylinder having a base radius "r" and height "h" (LSA).

Given diameter of the cylinder, d = 35 cm

radius, r = d/2 = 35/2 = 17.5 cm

Height of the cylinder, h = 1.2 m = 120 cm

Outer lateral surface area = 2π rh

= 2×(22/7)×17.5×120

= 13200 cm2 M L Aggarwal - Understanding ICSE Mathematics - Class 10 chapter Mensuration Question 4 Solution image
