Solutions for Class 9 Maths Chapter 21 Surface Area and Volume of A Sphere Exercise 21.2

## Important Definitions RD Sharma Chapter 21 Class 9 Maths Exercise 21.2 Solutions

This exercise of Chapter 21- Surface Area and Volume of Sphere is based on the following topics. Also, know the definitions and formulas with examples below.

- Volume of a sphere
- Volume of a hemisphere and
- Volume of a spherical shell

### Volume of a sphere

The volume of a sphere is calculated through the formula V=4/3 πr3, where ‘r’ is the radius of the sphere.

### Volume of a hemisphere

The volume of a hemisphere is calculated through formula (2/3) πr3 cubic units. Here π is a constant which is equal to 3.14 approximately, and “r” is the radius of the hemisphere.

### Volume of a spherical shell

The volume of a Sphere is V = 4/3πr³. When it comes to a spherical shell, the formula becomes V = 4/3 • π • (r³ – (r-t)³), where ‘t’ is the difference between the radius of both.

### Examples of RD Sharma Chapter 21 Class 9 Maths Exercise 21.2 Solutions

**Ques: Find the volume of a sphere whose radius is:**

**(a) 2 cm (b) 3.5 cm (c) 10.5 cm.**

**Solution:**

The volume of the sphere = 4/ 3πr3 Cubic Units

here, r = radius of a sphere

(a) Radius = 2 cm

Volume = 4/ 3 × 22/ 7 × (2) x 3

= 33.52

Volume = 33.52 cm3

(b) Radius = 3.5cm

hence volume = 4/ 3 × 22/ 7 × (3.5) x 3

= 179.666

Volume = 179.666 cm3

(c) Radius = 10.5 cm

Volume = 4 / 3 × 22/ 7 × (10.5) x 3

= 4851

Volume = 4851 cm3

**Ques: Find the volume of a sphere whose diameter is:**

**(a) 14 cm (b) 3.5 dm (c) 2.1 m**

**Solution:**

Volume of the sphere = 4/ 3πr3 Cubic Units

here, r = radius of a sphere

(a) diameter = 14 cm

So, radius = diameter / 2 = 14/ 2 = 7cm

Volume = 4/ 3× 22/ 7 × (7) x 3

= 1437.33

Volume = 1437.33 cm3

(b) diameter = 3.5 dm

As, radius = diameter / 2 = 3.5/ 2 = 1.75 dm

Volume = 4/ 3 × 22/ 7 × (1.75) x 3

= 22.46

Volume = 22.46 dm3

(c) diameter = 2.1 m

As, radius = diameter/ 2 = 2.1/ 2 = 1.05 m

Volume = 4/ 3× 22/ 7 × (1.05) x 3

= 4.851

Volume = 4.851 m3

**Ques: A hemispherical tank has an inner radius of 2.8 m. Find its capacity in liters.**

**Solution:**

The radius of the hemispherical tank = 2.8 m

Capacity of the hemispherical tank = 2/ 3 πr3

=2/ 3 × 22/ 7 × (2.8) x 3 m3

= 45.997 m3

[As 1m3 = 1000 liters]

Hence, capacity in liters = 45997 liters

**Ques: How many bullets can be made out of a cube of lead, whose edge measures 22 cm, each bullet being 2 cm in diameter?**

**Solution:**

Edge of the cube = 22 cm

Diameter of the bullet = 2 cm

radius of the bullet (r) = 1 cm

Volume of cube = (side)3 = (22)3 cm3 = 10648 cm3

And,

Volume of each bullet which will be spherical in shape = 4/ 3 πr3

= 4/ 3 ×22/ 7 ×(1) x 3 cm3

= 4/ 3 ×22/ 7 cm3

= 88/ 21 cm3

Number of bullets = (Volume of the cube)/ (Volume of the bullet)

= 10648/ 88/ 21

= 2541

Therefore, 2541 bullets can be made.
