Find the volume of each spherical lead shot.

(1) The water level in the cylindrical beaker rises by 1.5 cm when 100 lead shots are dropped.
(2) The radius of the cylindrical beaker is 3 cm.

Ideally it should be stated in the question (or question statements) that all spherical lead shots being dropped are identical.

then, after combining the two statements, we have: (sum total of volume of all objects dropped will be equal to the volume of water displaced)

the Volume of 100 spherical shots = Volume of water that rises = π*3*3*1.5. thus Volume per spherical lead shot can be calculated.

Hence answer is C.

Hi prags1989,

Why do you say that height is not given? We do not need the complete height of the beaker.
We are trying to find the volume of 100 spheres and then we divide by 100 to get the volume of one sphere.

Volume of 100 Spheres = Water displaced by 100 spheres
Water displaced by 100 spheres = \(\pi r^2 * h\) \(\Rightarrow\)\(\pi*3^2 *1.5\)

( Volume of water in beaker up to a height of 1.5cms = \(\pi r^2 * 1.5\) , where r is the radius of the beaker)
Hope this helps.
Let me know if anything is still unclear.
