Volume and surface area of solids
Q4: Find the volume and surface area of a closed hemisphere with
radius 3.5cm. Note you'll, have to modify the formulas, particularly
the SA one – the half-sphere has a flat circular top.
Q5: Find the ratio of the volume to the cylinder to the volume of the
hemisphere, given that the height h of the cylinder is equal to the diameter
d of the hemisphere.
Q6: The volume of a square pyramid is 324 cubic feet. Find the value of x
(length of side of square base). Then find the surface area of the pyramid.
