A glass is shaped like a right circular cylinder with a half sphere at the bottom. The glass is 7cm deep and has a diameter of 6cm, measured on the inside. If the glass is filled to the rim with apple cider, how much cider is in the glass? The formula for the volume a sphere is $$\frac{4}{3}*\pi*r^3$$.

A. 18$$\pi$$
B. 36$$\pi$$
C. 54$$\pi$$
D. 81$$\pi$$
E. 108$$\pi$$

If the glass is filled to the rim with apple cider, how much cider is in the glass? The formula for the volume a sphere is $$\frac{4}{3}*\pi*r^3$$.

A. 18$$\pi$$
B. 36$$\pi$$
C. 54$$\pi$$
D. 81$$\pi$$
E. 108$$\pi$$

The glass volume is composed of 2 parts: hemispherical portion + cylindrical portion.

For the hemispherical portion, diameter = 6 cm ---> radius = r= 3 ---> volume of the hemisphere = volume of sphere /2 = $$0.5*\frac{4}{3}*\pi*r^3 = 18\pi$$

For the cylindrical part, heigh=h=7-3 = 4 and radius =3 ---> volume of the cylindrical portion $$= \pi*r^2*h = 36\pi$$

Thus the total volume =$$( 18+36 )\pi = 54\pi$$

C is thus the correct answer.

Hope this helps.

D is thus the correct answer.

54$$\pi$$ and option D are different. I understand it is a typo.

Sorry if I'm missing something obvious here, but how do we know to subtract 3 from the height of the glass?

Thanks in advance!
