# Q : 8    A hemispherical bowl is made of steel, $\small 0.25\hspace{1mm}cm$ thick. The inner radius of the bowl is 5 cm. Find the outer curved surface area of the bowl.

H Harsh Kankaria

Given,

The inner radius of the bowl = $r_1 = 5\ cm$

The thickness of the bowl = $\small 0.25\hspace{1mm}cm$

$\therefore$ Outer radius of the bowl = (Inner radius + thickness) =

$r_2 = 5+0.25 = 5.25\ cm$

We know, Curved surface area of a hemisphere of radius $r$$2\pi r^2$

$\therefore$ The outer curved surface area of the bowl = $2\pi r_2^2$

$= 2\times\frac{22}{7}\times (5.25)^2$

$= 2\times\frac{22}{7}\times5.25\times5.25 = 173.25\ cm^2$

Therefore, the outer curved surface area of the bowl is $173.25\ cm^2$
