## NCERT Class 10 Maths Lab Manual – Comparison of Curved Surface Areas and Total Surface Areas of Two Right Circular Cylinders

**Objective**

To compare the curved surface areas and total surface areas of two right circular cylinders which are formed from rectangular sheets of paper with same dimensions.

**Prerequisite Knowledge**

- Construction of a cylinder from rectangular sheet by paper folding.
- Area of rectangle = length X breadth
- Circumference and area of a circle.

C= , A =

**Materials Required**

Coloured glazed paper, sketch pens, a pair of scissors, fevicol, cellotape, geometry box.

**Procedure
**

1. Take two rectangular sheets of paper of same dimensions as l= 14 cm and b =7 cm named as rectangle 1 and rectangle 2 .

2.Curve the rectangle 1 along its length l=14 cm.

3. Join two ends with cellotape to get a cylinder.

4. Similarly curve the rectangle 2 along its breadth b = 7 cm to get another cylinder as shown in figure.

**Observation**

**For rectangle 1:**

length of the rectangle = circumference of the circular base of the cylinder

l= = 14 cm.

breadth of the rectangle = height of the cylinder

b = h = 7 cm.

curved surface area = =

Total surface area

**For rectangle 2:**

breadth of the rectangle = circumference of circular base of the cylinder

b= = 7 cm

length of the rectangle = height of the cylinder

l= = 14 cm.

Total surface area

=

**Result**

- The curved surface areas (or lateral surface areas) of two cylinders of different height and radius formed from the two rectangular sheets of paper of same dimensions are same.
- The total surface areas of two cylinders of different height and radius formed from the two rectangular sheets of paper of same dimensions are not same.

**Learning Outcome**

Concept of comparison of curved surface area and total surface area of two cylinders formed from the two rectangular sheets of paper of same dimension is more clear. Students can understand easily that

but

**Activity Time
**

- Take a rectangular sheet of paper of size 22 cm x 10 cm. Form two cylinders

(i) curved along its length

(ii) curved along its breadth.

Compare the lateral surface areas and total surface areas of these two cylinders.

**Question 1:**

Find the height of a right circular cylinder made from a rectangle of length 15 cm and breadth 12 cm. It is curved along

its length.

**Answer:**

12 cm

**Question 2:**

What is the curved surface area of a cylinder obtained from a square of side 5 cm ?

**Answer:**

25 cm^{2}

**Question 3:**

Radius ofthebaseofa paper cylinder is 7 cm and it is cut along its height. Find the length of the paper obtained.

**Answer:**

l= circumference of base = = 44 cm
