# A copper wire of 4 mm diameter is evenly wound about a cylinder whose length is 24 cm and diameter 20 cm so as to cover whole surface. Find the length and weight of the wire assuming the density to be 8.68 gm/cm3.

Asked by Topperlearning User 20th February 2014, 1:56 PM

Length of the cylinder = 24 cm

Diameter ofcopper wire = 4 m

One round of the wire will cover the surface of cylinder by 4 mm

Therefore, the number of rounds of wire to cover the length of cylinder

Now, distance of cylinder = 20 cm

Therefore, length of wire in one round = circumference of base of the cylinder

= 2r =

Length of wire for covering the whole surface of cylinder = length of wire in 60 rounds

Radius of copper wire = = 0.2cm

Therefore, volume of wire = r2h

Weight of wire = volume × density = 474.122 × 8.68 = 4115.37 gm = 4.11537 kg
