Question 30 Mensuration Exercise 17.2

The slant height and base diameter of a conical tomb are 25 m and 14 m respectively. Find the cost of white washing its curved surface area at the rate of Rs 210 per 100 m2.



The shape of a cone is produced by stacking several triangles and spinning them around an axis. It has a total surface area and a curved surface area because it has a flat base.

Given slant height of conical tomb, l = 25 m

Base diameter, d = 14 m

So radius, r = 14/2 = 7 m

Curved surface area =π rl

= (22/7)×7×25 = 550 m2

Hence the curved surface area of the cone is 550 m2.

Rate of washing its curved surface area per 100 m2 = Rs. 210

So total cost = (550/100)×210 = Rs. 1155

Hence the total cost of washing its curved surface area is Rs. 1155. M L Aggarwal - Understanding ICSE Mathematics - Class 10 chapter Mensuration Question 30 Solution image
