 # ML Aggarwal Solutions Class 10 Mathematics Solutions for Mensuration Exercise 17.1 in Chapter 17 - Mensuration

A school provides milk to the students daily in cylindrical glasses of diameter 7 cm. If the glass is filled with milk upto a height of 12 cm, find how many litres of milk is needed to serve 1600 students.

Solution:

The capacity of a cylinder, which determines how much material it can carry, is determined by the cylinder's volume.

Given diameter of the cylindrical glass, d = 7 cm

Radius, r = d/2 = 7/2 = 3.5 cm

Height of the cylindrical glass, h = 12 cm

Volume of the cylindrical glass, V = π r2h

= (22/7)×3.52×12

= 462 cm3

Number of students = 1600

Milk needed for 1600 students = 1600×462

= 739200 cm3

= 739.2 litres [∵1000 cm3 = 1 litre]

Hence the amount of milk needed to serve 1600 students is 739.2 litres. Related Questions
