## NCERT Class 10 Maths Lab Manual – Comparison Of Volumes of Two Right Circular Cylinders

**Objective**

To compare the volumes of two right circular cylinders which are formed from two rectangular sheets of paper with same dimensions.

**Prerequisite Knowledge**

- To make a cylinder from a rectangular sheet.
- Circumference of circle = and area of circle = where r is the radius of the circle.
- Volume of right circular cylinder = (r—> radius of circular base and h is the height of the cylinder)

**Materials Required**

Coloured glaze paper, a pair of scissors, cellotape, geometry box, fevicol.

**Procedure**

1. Cut two rectangles of same dimensions as l= 22 cm and b= 10 cm.

2. Name them as rectangle 1 and rectangle 2.

3. Curve the rectangle 1 along its length and join the ends with cellotape to get a cylinder.

4. Curve the rectangle 2 along its breadth and join the ends with cellotape to get another cylinder.

**Observation**

**For rectangle 1:**

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

i.e. l= = 22 cm.

breadth of the rectangle = height of the cylinder

i.e. b = h1 = 10 cm.

**For rectangle 2:**

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

b = = 10 cm

= = 1.59 cm

length of the rectangle = height of the cylinder

l==22 cm.

**Result**

Volume of these two cylinders are not same.

**Learning Outcome**

Students can easily understand the concept that the volume of the right circular cylinder formed by curving a rectangular sheet along its length not equal to the volume of the cylinder formed by curving another rectangular sheet of same dimensions along its breadth.

**Activity Time**

1. A cylinder is formed by curving a rectangular sheet 22 cm x 20 cm along its length. Another cylinder is formed by curving a squared sheet of side 22 cm along its any side. Compare the volume of two cylinders so formed.

**Viva Voce**

**Question 1:**

If the height of a right circular cylinder is halved and radius of base is doubled, what effect will it make on the volume of

the cylinder ?

**Answer:**

The volume will become double of the original volume.

**Question 2:**

If the radius of base of a right circular cylinder is halved, how many times the height should become to keep the volume same?

**Answer:**

4 times the original height

**Question 3:**

What will be the height of a right circular cylinder if the number of units in its volume is equal to the number of units in

area of its base ?

**Answer:**

h= 1 unit [**Hint:** =** **

**Question 4:**

Find the volume of a cylinder for radius 2 cm and height 1 cm.

**Answer:**

4

**Question 5:**

If the height of a cylinder is twice the radius of its base, then find its volume in terms of height.

**Answer:**

cubic units, where h — height of the cylinder.
