Dimension of a cuboid tank:

Length $\displaystyle (l) = 6 \text{ m }$ Breadth $\displaystyle (b) = 5 \text{ m }$ Height $\displaystyle (h) = 4.5 \text{ m }$

Therefore Volume $\displaystyle = lbh = 6 \times 5 \times 4.5 = 135 \text{ m}^3$

$\displaystyle \\$

Question 2: A cubical vessel is $\displaystyle 10 \text{ m }$ long and $\displaystyle 8 \text{ m }$ wide. How high must it be made to hold $\displaystyle 380$ cubic meters of a liquid?

Dimension of a cuboid tank:

Length $\displaystyle (l) = 10 \text{ m }$ Breadth $\displaystyle (b) = 8 \text{ m }$ Height $\displaystyle (h) = h \text{ m }$

$\displaystyle \text{Therefore } 380 = lbh$

$\displaystyle \Rightarrow 380 = 10 \times 8 \times h$

$\displaystyle \Rightarrow h = \frac{380}{10 \times 8} = 4.75 \text{ m }$

$\displaystyle \\$

Volume $\displaystyle = V$

Surface area $\displaystyle = S$

Dimensions are $\displaystyle a, b, c$

$\displaystyle \text{Therefore } V = abc$ … … … … … i)

$\displaystyle S = 2(ab + bc+ ac)$ … … … … … ii)

Dividing ii) by i) we get

$\displaystyle \frac{S}{V} = \frac{2(ab + bc+ ac) }{abc}$

$\displaystyle \text{Therefore } V = abc$

Also $\displaystyle ab = x$ … … … … … i)

$\displaystyle bc = y$ … … … … … ii)

$\displaystyle ac = z$ … … … … … iiii)

Multiplying i), ii) and iii) we get

$\displaystyle xyz = ab \times bc \times ac$

$\displaystyle ab = 8$ … … … … … i)

$\displaystyle bc = 18$ … … … … … ii)

$\displaystyle ac = 25$ … … … … … iiii)

Multiplying i), ii) and iii) we get

$\displaystyle 8 \times 18 \times 25 = (abc)^2$

$\displaystyle \text{Therefore } V = \sqrt{8 \times 18 \times 25} = 4 \time 3 \times 5 = 60 \text{ cm}^3$

Question 7: The breadth of a room is twice its height; one half of its length and the volume of the room is $\displaystyle 512 cu. d\text{ m }$. Find its dimensions.

Let the dimensions be Length $\displaystyle (l) = 4x$ Breadth $\displaystyle (b) = 2x$ Height $\displaystyle (h) = x$

Volume $\displaystyle = 512 d\text{ m}^3$

$\displaystyle \text{Therefore } 4x \times 2x \times x = 512$

$\displaystyle \Rightarrow 8x^3 = 512$

$\displaystyle \Rightarrow x^3 = 64$

$\displaystyle \Rightarrow x = 4$

Therefore dimensions will be Length $\displaystyle (l) = 16 d\text{ m }$ Breadth $\displaystyle (b) = 8 d\text{ m }$ Height $\displaystyle (h) = 4 d\text{ m }$

Question 8: A river $\displaystyle 3 \text{ m }$ deep and $\displaystyle 40 \text{ m }$ wide is flowing at the rate of $\displaystyle 2$ km per hour. How much water will fall into the sea in a minute?

Dimension of River: Depth $\displaystyle = 3 \text{ m }$ and Width $\displaystyle = 40 \text{ m }$

$\displaystyle \text{Velocity of rate of flow } = 2 km/hr = \frac{2 \times 1000}{60} m/min = \frac{100}{3} m/min$

$\displaystyle \text{Therefore volume of water flowing in a minute }= 3 \times 40 \times \frac{100}{3} = 4000 \text{ m}^3$

$\displaystyle \\$

Question 9: Water in a canal $\displaystyle 30 d\text{ m }$ wide and $\displaystyle 12 d\text{ m }$ deep, is flowing with a velocity of $\displaystyle 100$ km per hour. How much area will it irrigate in $\displaystyle 30$ minutes if $\displaystyle 8 \text{ cm }$ of standing water is desired?

Dimension of Canal: Depth $\displaystyle = 12 dm = 1.2 \text{ m }$ and Width $\displaystyle = 30 dm = 3 \text{ m }$

$\displaystyle \text{Velocity } = 100 km/hr = \frac{100 \times 1000}{60} m/min = \frac{10000}{6} m/min$

$\displaystyle \text{Therefore volume of flow in 30 minutes } = 1.2 \times 3 \times \frac{10000}{6} \times 30 = 180000 \text{ m}^3$

$\displaystyle \text{Therefore area irrigated } = \frac{180000}{0.08} = 2250000 \text{ m}^2$

Therefore dimension of the cuboid

Length $\displaystyle (l) = 16 \text{ cm }$ Breadth $\displaystyle (b) = 8 \text{ cm }$ Height $\displaystyle (h) = 8 \text{ cm }$

Therefore total surface are $\displaystyle = 2 (lb + bh + lh) = 2(16 \times 8 + 8 \times 8 + 8 \times 16) = 640 \text{ cm}^3$

Volume of gold $\displaystyle = 0.5 \text{ m}^3$

1 hectare $\displaystyle = 10000 \text{ m}^2$

Let the thickness of the gold sheet $\displaystyle = x$

$\displaystyle \text{Therefore } 0.5 = x \times 10000 \Rightarrow x = \frac{0.5}{10000} \text{ m }$

$\displaystyle \Rightarrow x = \frac{0.5 \times 100}{10000} cm = \frac{0.5 \times 10}{100} mm = 0.05 m\text{ m }$

If $\displaystyle x$ is the dimension of the third cube

Volume of big cube $\displaystyle = 12^2 = 1728 \text{ cm}^3$

$\displaystyle \text{Therefore } 6^3 + 8^3 + x^3 = 1728$

Question 21: A field is $\displaystyle 200 \text{ m }$ long and $\displaystyle 150 \text{ m }$ broad. There is a plot, $\displaystyle 50 \text{ m }$ long and $\displaystyle 40 \text{ m }$ broad, near the field. The plot is dug $\displaystyle 7 \text{ m }$ deep and the earth taken out is spread evenly on the field. By how many meters is the level of the field raised?

Question 22: A field is in the form of a rectangle of length $\displaystyle 18 \text{ m }$ and width $\displaystyle 15 \text{ m }$. A pit, $\displaystyle 7.5 \text{ m }$ long, $\displaystyle 6 \text{ m }$ broad and $\displaystyle 0.8 \text{ m }$ deep, is dug in a corner of the field and the earth taken out is spread over the remaining area of the field. Find out the extent to which the level of the field has been raised.

Dimension of field: Length $\displaystyle (l) = 18 \text{ m }$ Breadth $\displaystyle (b) = 15 \text{ m }$

Dimension of pit: Length $\displaystyle (l) = 7.5 \text{ m }$ Breadth $\displaystyle (b) = 6.0 \text{ m }$ Depth $\displaystyle (h) = 0.8 \text{ m }$

Volume of mud $\displaystyle = 7.5 \times 6.5 \times 0.8 = 36 \text{ m}^3$

Area of field $\displaystyle = 18 \times 15 = 270 \text{ m}^2$

Area of pit $\displaystyle = 7.5 \times 6 = 45 \text{ m}^2$

Therefore the area of spread $\displaystyle = 270 - 45 = 225 \text{ m}^2$

Water flows into it through a pipe-whose cross-section is $\displaystyle 25 \text{ cm}^2$, at the rate of $\displaystyle 16 km/hour$. How much the level of the water rises in the tank in $\displaystyle 45 minutes$.

Dimension of tank base: Length $\displaystyle (l) = 80 \text{ m }$ Breadth $\displaystyle (b) = 25 \text{ m }$

$\displaystyle \text{Rate of flow of water } = 16 km/hr = \frac{16 \times 1000}{60} m/min = \frac{800}{3} m/min.$

$\displaystyle \text{Volume of water flow per minute } = \frac{25}{10000} \times \frac{800}{3} = \frac{2}{3} m^3/min$

Therefore in $\displaystyle 45$ minutes, let $\displaystyle h$ be the rise in water level.

$\displaystyle \text{Therefore } 80\times 25 \times h = \frac{2}{3} \times 45$

Dimension of the reservoir:

Length $\displaystyle (l) = 80 \text{ m }$ Breadth $\displaystyle (b) = 60 \text{ m }$ Height $\displaystyle (h) = 6.5 \text{ m }$

$\displaystyle \text{Rate of flow of water } = 15 km/hr = \frac{15 \times 1000}{60} m/min = 250 m/min$

$\displaystyle \text{Therefore time to empty the tank } = \frac{80 \times 60 \times 6.5}{0.2 \times 0.2 \times 50} = 3120 \text{ minutes or 52 hours }$

Dimension of the tank:

Length $\displaystyle (l) = 20 \text{ m }$ Breadth $\displaystyle (b) = 15 \text{ m }$ Height $\displaystyle (h) = 6 \text{ m }$

$\displaystyle \text{Volume of water required daily } = 4000 \times \frac{150}{1000} = 600 \text{ m}^3$

$\displaystyle \text{Therefore the number of days the water will last } = \frac{20 \times 15 \times 6}{600} = 3 days.$

Dimension of the crate:

Length $\displaystyle (l) = 1.5 \text{ m }$ Breadth $\displaystyle (b) = 1.25 \text{ m }$ Height $\displaystyle (h) = 0.5 \text{ m }$
