Observe the measures of pots in figure 7.8 and 7.9. How many jugs of water can the cylindrical pot hold?

Answer :

Height of water jug, HJ = 10cm

Radius of water jug, RJ = 3.5 cm

Volume of conical jug,

Let the number of jugs be n.

Height of cylindrical pot, HP = 10 cm

Radius of pot, RP = 7 cm

Since the water is transferred from pot to ‘n’ number of jugs,

Volume of pot = n × Volume of jug

On substituting the given values,

n = 3× 22× 1

n = 12 cm

The cylindrical pot can hold 12 jugs of water.
