Answer :

The Circus tent is made as a combination of cylinder and cone on top.

Height of cylindrical part of tent = h = 3 m

Base radius of tent = r = 52.5 m

Area of canvas required for cylindrical part of tent = 2πrh

= 2 × 22/7 × 52.5 × 3 m^{2}

= 990 m^{2}

Slant height of cone = l = 53 m

Area of canvas required for conical part of the tent = πrl

= 22/7 × 52.5 × 53 m^{2}

= 8745 m^{2}

Area of canvas required to make the tent = Area of canvas required for cylindrical part of tent + Area of canvas required for conical part of tent

Area of canvas required to make the tent = 990 + 8745 m^{2} = 9735 m^{2}

PREVIOUSA tent is in the shape of a right circular cylinder up to a height of 3 m and conical above it. The total height of the tent is 13.5 m and the radius of its base is 14 m. Find the cost of cloth required to make the tent at the rate of Rs 80 per square metre. [Take π = 22/7.]NEXTA rocket is in the form of a circular cylinder closed at the lower and a cone of the same radius is attached to the top. The radius of the cylinder is 2.5 m, its height is 21 m and the slant height of the cone is 8 m. Calculate the total surface area of the rocket.
