Expert Answer:

From the figure greatesr possible diameter for such hemeisphere is equal to cube's edge is 7 cm
Radius of hemispherical part = r = 7/2 = 3.5 cm
Total surface area of solid = Surface area of cubical part + Curved surface area of hemispherical part - area of base of hemispherical part
= 6 × 72 + 2∏r2 - ∏r2 
= 6 × 72 + ∏r2
Solving it we get 
= 332.5 cm2
