# The volume of a right circular cone is 9856 cm³. If the diameter of the base is 28 cm, find

(i) height of the cone (ii) slant height of the cone

(iii) curved surface area of the cone

**Solution:**

Volume of a cone having radius 'r', and height 'h' = 1/3πr²h

Curved surface area of the cone having radius, 'r' and slant height, 'l' = πrl

Slant height of the cone, l = √r² + h² --- Equation(3)

Diameter of the cone, d = 28 cm

Radius of the cone, r = 28/2 cm = 14 cm

i) Height of the cone, h = ?

Volume of the cone = 9856 cm^{3 } and radius(r) = 14 cm

1/3πr²h = 9856 cm^{3}

h = 9856 cm^{3} × 3/πr²

= 9856 cm^{3} × 3/(14 cm × 14 cm) × 7/22

= 48 cm

ii) Slant height of the cone, l'= ?

radius(r) = 14 cm and height(h) = 48 cm

l = √r² + h²

= √(14)² + (48)²

= √196 + 2304

= √2500

= 50 cm

iii) Curved surface area of the cone = ?

radius(r) = 14 cm and slant height(l) = 50 cm

Curved surface area = πrl

= 22/7 × 14 cm × 50 cm

= 2200 cm²
