# A shuttle cock used for playing badminton has the shape of a frustum of a cone mounted on a hemisphere. The external diameter of the frustum are 5 cm and 2 cm. The height of the entire shuttle cock is 7 cm. Find its external surface area.

Given.

The external diameter of the frustum are 5 cm and 2 cm. The height of the entire shuttle cock is 7 cm

Formula used/Theory.

CSA of frustum = π(R + r) × L

CSA of hemisphere = 2πr2

Radii of frustum is and = 2.5cm and 1cm

As in hemisphere radius and height are same

Height of frustum = height of cock – Radius

= 7 cm – 1 cm

= 6 cm

In frustum

L2 = height2 +

L2 = (6 cm)2 + [2.5 cm – 1 cm]2

L2 = 36 cm2 + 2.25 cm2 = 38.25 cm2

L = √(38.25 cm2) = 6.18 cm

CSA of hemisphere = 2 × 3.14 × (1 cm)2

= 6.28 cm2

CSA of frustum = 3.14 × [2.5cm + 1cm] × 6.18cm

= 3.14 × 3.5cm × 6.18cm

= 67.92 cm2

External surface area = CSA of hemisphere + CSA of frustum

= 6.28 cm2 + 67.92 cm2

= 74.2 cm2
