# CURVED SURFACE AREA AND TOTAL SURFACE AREA OF CYLINDER EXAMPLES

Curved Surface Area and Total Surface Area of Cylinder Examples :

Here we are going to see, some example problems of finding curved surface area and total surface area of cylinder.

## Formula for Curved Surface Area and Total Surface Area of Cylinder

 Curved surface area  =  2ΠrhTotal surface area of  =  2Πr(h + r) Curved surface area   =  2Π(R + r)hTotal surface area   =  2Π(R + r)(R - r + h)

## Curved Surface Area and Total Surface Area of Cylinder Examples

Question 1 :

The radius and height of a cylinder are in the ratio 5:7 and its curved surface area is 5500 sq.cm. Find its radius and height.

Solution :

Radius of cylinder (r)  =  5x

Height of cylinder (h)  =  7x

Curved surface area of cylinder  =  5500 sq.cm

2Πrh  =  5500

2⋅(22/7) ⋅ 5x ⋅ 7x  =  5500

x2  =  5500 (7/22) ⋅ (1/2) ⋅ (1/35)

x2  =  25

x  =  5

Radius  =  5(5)  =  25 cm

Height  =  7(5)  =  35 cm

Question 2 :

A solid iron cylinder has total surface area of 1848 sq.m. Its curved surface area is five – sixth of its total surface area. Find the radius and height of the iron cylinder.

Solution :

Total surface area of cylinder  =  1848 sq.cm

curved surface area  =  (5/6) of 1848

=  (5/6) 1848

2Πrh  =  1540----(1)

2Πr(h + r)  =  1848

2Πrh + 2Πr2  =  1848

1540 + 2Πr2  =  1848

2Πr2  =  1848 - 1540

2(22/7)r2  =  308

r2  = 308 (7/22)(1/2)

r2  =  49

r  =  7 m

By applying the value of r in (1), we get

2 ⋅ (22/7) ⋅ 7 h  =  1540

h  =  1540/44

h  = 35 m

Question 3 :

The external radius and the length of a hollow wooden log are 16 cm and 13 cm respectively. If its thickness is 4 cm then find its T.S.A.

Solution :

External radius (R)  =  16 cm

height of log  =  13 cm

thickness  =  4 cm

thickness =  R - r ==>  4  =  16 - r

Internal radius (r)  =  16 - 4  =  12 cm

Total surface area  =  2Π(R + r) (R - r + h)

=  2 ⋅ (22/7) (16 + 12) (16 - 12 + 13)

=  2 ⋅ (22/7) (28) (17)

=  2992 cm
