## Question

A hemispherical bowl is made of steel, $$0.25 \rm\,cm$$ thick. The inner radius of the bowl is $$5\rm\, cm.$$ Find the outer curved surface area of the bowl.

## Text Solution

Reasoning:

The surface area of the hemisphere is half of the surface area of the sphere.

What is known?

Thickness of steel.

What is unknown?

Outer curved surface area.

Steps:

Inner radius bowl $$= 5\rm\, cm$$

Thickness of steel $$= 0.25\rm\, cm$$

$$= 5+0.25\\=5.25 \rm{cm}$$

Curve Surface area of the hemisphere,

\begin{align}&= 2\pi {r^2} \\&= 2 \times \frac{{22}}{7} \times {(5.25)^2}\\&= 173.25\,\,\rm{cm^2} \end{align}

\begin{align} = 173.25\,\rm{cm^2} \end{align}
