The radius of the hemispherical bowl = $r = \frac{10.5}{2}\ cm$

We know, Volume of a hemisphere = $\frac{2}{3}\pi r^3$

The volume of the given hemispherical bowl = $\frac{2}{3}\times\frac{22}{7}\times \left (\frac{10.5}{2} \right )^3$

$= \frac{2}{3\times8}\times22\times1.5\times10.5\times10.5$

$= 303.1875\ cm^3$

The capacity of the hemispherical bowl = $= \frac{303.1875}{1000} \approx 0.303\ litres\ \ \ (approx.)$
