What length of tarpaulin 3 m wide will be required to make conical tent of height 8 m and base radius 6 m? Assume that the extra length of material that will be required for stitching margins and wastage in cutting is approximately 20 cm. (Use = 3.14).

Radius (r) of base of tent = 6 m

Slant height (l) of tent =

CSA of conical tent = = (3.14 6 10) = 188.4

Let length of tarpaulin sheet required be L.

As 20 cm will be wasted so, effective length will be (L - 0.2 m)

Breadth of tarpaulin = 3 m

Area of sheet = CSA of tent

[(L - 0.2 m) 3] m = 188.4

L - 0.2 m = 62.8 m

L = 63 m

Thus, the length of the tarpaulin sheet will be 63 m.
