If a solid right circular cylinder with height 9 and radius 2 is cut as shown into three new cylinders, each of equal and uniform height, how much new surface area is created?


(A) \(4\pi\)

(B) \(12\pi\)

(C) \(16\pi\)

(D) \(24\pi\)

(E) \(36\pi\)

4 new circle surfaces were created.

hence 4 x π(2)^2 = 16π

My guess is c.

New surface areas added are the circular bases and tops.
when cut in 3 pieces it adds 4 circular areas each of radius 2.
Therefor the new added surface area will be = 4*π*r^2 = 4*4*π = 16*π

Please remember that the surface area of cylinder created by height will not change
But 4 new circle surfaces were created hence 4 x π(2)^2 = 16π

So answer is C

The new surface area created are-
1. Top+bottom of middle cylinder in the pic
2. Top of lowermost cylinder in the pic
3. Bottom of uppermost cylinder in the pic

Area= 4 * PI (2)^2 = PI16, Option C
