# A hemispherical bowl made of brass has inner diameter 10.5 cm. Find the cost of tin-plating it on the inside at the rate of ₹ 16 per 100 cm^{2}.

**Solution:**

Hemisphere is exactly half of a sphere, so the curved surface area is half of the surface area of the sphere.

CSA of the hemisphere with radius r, CSA = 2πr^{2}.

Since the bowl is to be tin-plated from inside, the area to be tin-plated will be equal to the CSA of the hemisphere.

Inner diameter, d = 10.5cm

Inner radius, r = 10.5/2cm = 5.25cm

CSA of hemispherical bowl = 2πr^{2}

= 2 × 22/7 × 5.25cm × 5.25cm

= 173.25 cm^{2}

The cost of tin-plating 100 cm^{2} of the bowl = ₹16

The cost of tin-plating 1 cm^{2} of the bowl = ₹16/100

The cost of tin-plating 173.25 cm^{2 }area of the bowl = (₹16/100) ×173.25 = 27.72

Thus, the cost of tin-plating is ₹ 27.72.
