# A cylindrical pillar is 50 cm in diameter and 3.5 m in height. Find the cost of painting the curved surface of the pillar at the rate of Rs 12.50 per m2

Given:
Height (h) cylindrical pillar = 3.5 m
Radius (r) of the circular end of pillar = = 25 cm = 0.25 m

CSA of pillar = 2πrh

= 2 x  x 0.25 x 3.5 m2

= (44 x 0.125) m2

= 5.5 m2

Cost of painting 1 m2 area = Rs 12.50

Cost of painting 5.5 m2 area = Rs (5.5 × 12.50)

= Rs 68.75

Therefore, the cost of painting the CSA of the pillar is Rs 68.75
