# A company packages its milk powder in cylindrical container whose base has a diameter of 14 cm and height 20 cm. Company places a label around the surface of the container (as shown in the figure). If the label is placed 2 cm from top and bottom, what is the area of the label.

**Solution:**

Visually, area of the label on the cylinder will be equal to the lateral surface area of the container excluding the area covered by 2 cm gaps from top and bottom.

Height of the label h = 20 cm - 2 × 2 cm = 16 cm [Subtracting the 2 cm gaps from top and bottom]

Radius of the label = 14/2 cm = 7 cm

Label is in the form of a cylinder having its radius and height as 7 cm an 16 cm respectively.

Area of the label = Lateral surface area of the cylinder = 2πrh

= 2 × 22/7 × 7 cm × 16 cm

= 704 cm²

Thus, the area of the label is 704 cm².
