Hi....

If the cylinder is HALF full while on curved surface, it will also be HALF full When on the circular base.
So the height is 3 m and volume =\(πr^2h=462......r^2=\frac{462}{π*3}=\frac{462*7}{22*3}=49.....r=7\)
So D =2*7=14

Hi chetan2u,

If Volume is half full then is it not \(πr^2(h/2)=462\)?

What is trap here?

You are missing the point that volume of the cylinder when it’s vertical = half volume of the cylinder when it’s horizontal.

Hi NandiSS,

You are right in thinking that pi*r^2*h = 462*2.. the catch here is when it's horizontal it's height is 6.
Hope it helps

The formula of filled cylinder is \(\pi * r^2 * H = 462 * 2\)
If H = 3 when it's half full => H = 6 when it's full
\(\frac{\pi * r^2 * 6}{2} = 462\)
\(462 = 3\pi *r^2\)

\(\frac{462}{9} = r^2\)
\(\sqrt51 = r\)
\(7 = r\)
D = 2r = 14
Answer is D

Since we are given that the volume of the water is 462 m^3 and the height of the water is 3 m, if we let r = radius of the base of the cylinder, the volume of the water can be equated as follows:

462 = π x r^2 x 3

154/π = r^2

49 = r^2

r = 7

Since the radius = 7, the diameter = 14.

Note that the height of the water in the cylinder can be confusing. Yes, the actual height of the cylinder is 6 feet, but the volume of water is 462 cu. m.when the cylinder is half full. Thus, we use 3 feet for the height of the cylinder for the given volume. We could use 6 feet for the height of the cylinder, but we would have to double the given volume in order to get the correct answer.

Answer: D
