If the diameter of sphere is decreased by 25%,then by what % its curved surface area would decrease?
Asked by jishnu1994 | 25th Dec, 2009, 11:15: PM
CSA of a sphere = 4πR2 = πD2
Since CSA is directed propotional to the square of diameter, if we decrease the diameter by 25% i.e. make it's value 75% of the initial value,
New CSA (0.75D)2 = 0.5625D2
Hence new CSA = 0.5625 times initial CSA.
So there is a decrease of 1 - 0.5625 = 0.4375 i.e. 43.75%
