Q : 2     Find the capacity in litres of a conical vessel with

(i) radius 7 cm, slant height 25 cm

Given,

Radius = $r =7\ cm$

Slant height = $l = \sqrt{r^2 + h^2} = 25\ cm$

Height = $h =\sqrt{l^2-r^2} = \sqrt{25^2-7^2}$

$= \sqrt{(25-7)(25+7)} = \sqrt{(18)(32)}$

$= 24\ cm$

We know,
Volume of a right circular cone = $\frac{1}{3}\pi r^2 h$

$\therefore$ Volume of the vessel= $\frac{1}{3}\times\frac{22}{7}\times7^2\times24$

$\\ = 22\times7\times8\\ = 154\times8 \\ = 1232\ cm^3$

$\therefore$ Required capacity of the vessel =

$= \frac{1232}{1000} = 1.232\ litres$
