The diagram represents a solid frustum with base radius 21cm and top radius 14cm. The frustum is 22.5cm high and is made of a metal whose density is 3 g/cm3.
(Take π=22/7)

1. Calculate
• The volume of the metal in the frustum.
• The mass of the frustum in kg.
2. The frustum is melted down and recast into a solid cube. In the process 20% of the metal is lost. Calculate to 2 decimal places the length of each side of the cube.

1.
• Volume
Ratio x/14 =(22.5+x)/21
21X=14(22.5 +X)
21= 14(22.5 + x)
21x - 14x = 315
x = 45cm
Volume of whole cone
=1/3 x 22/7 x 21 x 21 x 67.5 =31185 cm3
Volume of small cone
=1/3 x 22/7 x14 x 14 x 45 = 9240 cm3
Volume of frustum
31185- 9240 = 21 945 cm3

• Mass of frustum
Mass=21945x3g/cm3 =65835g
Mass in kg= (65.835 g)/1000g = 65835kg

2. 20% of 65.835kg = 13.167 kg
65.835 - 13.167 = 52.668 kg
Volume of material remaining =
56682/3= 17556cm3
Length of cube = ∛(17 556 )= 25.99 cm
