The circumference of the base of a 10 m high conical tent is 44 m. Calculate the length of canvas used in making the tent if the canvas is 2 m wide.
Let h be the height of the conical tent and r be the radius of its base.
Circumference of the base = 44 m
2r = 44 m
Slant height, l=
Area of canvas = C.S.A of cone
L B = rl
Thus, the length of the canvas used is 134.2 m.
