The diameter of a sphere is 6 cm. It is melted and drawn into a wire of diameter 0.2 cm. Find the length of the wire.
Volume of a sphere = (4/3)πr3
Volume of a cylinder = πr2h
Given, diameter of a sphere is 6 cm. It is melted and drawn into a wire of diameter 0.2 cm.
Long wire can be assumed to be a cylinder.
⇒ l = 3600 cm = 36 m
