A well of diameter 3 m is dug 14 m deep. The earth taken out of it has been spread evenly all around it in the shape of a circular ring of width 4 m to form an embankment. Find the height of the embankment.
The shape of the well will be cylindrical.
Depth (h1) of well = 14 m
Radius (r) of the circular end of well = 3/2 m
Width of embankment = 4 m
As per the question,
Our embankment will be in a cylindrical shape having outer radius (R)as 11/2 m and inner radius (r) = 3/2 m
Let the height of embankment be h2
Volume of soil dug from well = Volume of earth used to form embankment
πr2 × h1 = π × (R2 – r2) × h2
⇒ 31.5 = 28 h
⇒ h = 1.125 m
