Question

What is the length of a 10 mm wire that has been drawn out of a lump of 11 cu. cm. tin? Take π = 22/7.

A

350 cm.

B

352 cm.

C

348 cm.

D

354 cm.

Soln.
Ans: a

The wire is a cylinder with r = 1/10 cm, and length L. The volume of tin is equal to the volume of the wire. So π ${1/10} × {1/10} × L$ = 11, which gives L = ${10 × 10 × 11 × 7}/22$ = 350 cm.
