# A metallic sphere of radius 5.6 cm is melted and recast into the shape of a cylinder of radius 6 cm. Find the height of the cylinder.

Given.

Radius of sphere is 5.6 cm

Radius of cylinder is 6 cm

Formula used/Theory.

Volume of cylinder = πr2h

Volume of sphere = πr3

Volume of sphere = πr3

= × π × (5.6 cm)3

Volume of cylinder = πr2h

= π × (6 cm)2 × h

When a metallic sphere is recast in shape of cylinder

Volume of both sphere and cylinder will be equal

comparing both we get height of cylinder

π × (6 cm)2 × h = × π × (5.6 cm)3

h =

h = 6.5 cm

Height of cylinder is 6.5 cm
