A sphere of diameter 6 cm is dropped into a cylindrical vessel partly filled with water. The radius of the vessel is 6 cm. If the sphere is completely submerged in water, find by how much the surface level of water will be raised.

Diameter of sphere = 6 cm
Radius of sphere = r = 3 cm
Radius of cylinder = R = 6 cm
Let height of water raised be h cm.
Then, volume of water thus raised = R2h
Volume of water raised = volume of sphere
R2h = r3
R2h = r3
36h = 27
h = 1 cm
Therefore, water will be raised by 1 cm.

- Rain water ,which falls on a flat rectangular surface of length 6m and breath 4m transferred into a cylindrical vessel of internal radius 20cm. What will be the height of water in the cylindrical vessel if a rainfall of 1cm has fallen?pie = 22/7
- Sushant has a vessel, of the form of an inverted cone, open at the top, of height 11 cm and radius of top as 2.5 cm and is full of water. Metallic spherical balls each of diameter 0.5 cm are put in the vessel due to which 25th of the water in the vessel flows out. Find how many balls were put in the vessel. Sushant made the arrangement so that the water that flows out irrigates the flower beds. What value has been shown by Sushant?
