## Total Surface Area Example

Total Surface Area examples is containing some practice questions on total surface area for some particular solids.

Example 1:

A toy is in the form of right circular cylinder with a hemisphere at the one end and a cone at the other end.The base radius  measures 3.5 cm , height of the cylindrical portion is 10 cm. and conical part measures 12 cm.Find the total surface-area of the toy(use π = 3.14)

solution:

Radius of the hemisphere = 3.5 cm
Curved Surface-area(CSA) of the hemisphere = 2πr²square units
= 2(3.5)²π
= (24.5)π cm²
Radius of the Cylinder r = 3.5 cm
Height of the Cylinder h = 10 cm
Curved Surface-Area(CSA) of the Cylinder = 2πrh square units.
= 2 π  x 3.5 x 10
= 70π cm²
Radius of the cone r= 3.5 cm
Height of the cone h = 12 cm

Slant height of the cone l = √(r² + h²)
l = √(3.5² + 12²)
l = √(12.25+144)
l = √(156.25)
l = 12.5 cm
Curved Surface-Area(CSA) of the Cone = πrl square units
= π(3.5)(12.5)
= (43.75)π cm²
Total Surface-Area of the Toy = CSA of the hemisphere +

(CSA of the Cylinder) + (CSA of the Cone)
= (24.5 π)+(70 π)+(43.75 π)
=  138.25  x 3.14
Hence, total surface area of the Toy = 434.11 cm²

Example 2

Find the total surface area of cylinder whose height is 8 cm and radius is 4 cm.

solution:

Radius of the Cylinder = 4 cm
Height of the cylinder = 8 cm
Required total surface area of the cylinder = 2πr(h+r)
= 2 π (4) (8+4)
= 2 π (4) (12)
= 96 π

Hence, total surface area of the Cylinder = 96π cm²

Example 3

Find the total surface area of cylinder whose height is 16 cm and radius is 7 cm.

Solution:

Radius of the Cylinder = 7 cm

Height of the cylinder = 16 cm

Required Total surface area of the cylinder = 2πr(h+r)
= 2 (22/7) (7) (16+7)
= 2 (22) (23)
= 1012 cm²

Hence, Total surface area of the Cylinder = 1012 cm²
