Question

# An iron sphere of diameter 12 cm is dropped into a cylindrical can of diameter 24 cm containing water. Find the rise in the level of water when the sphere is completely immersed?

Hint:

### Volume of cylinder

## The correct answer is: h = 0.5cm

### Explanation:

- We have given a iron sphere with diameter 12cm dropped into cylindrical can of diameter 24cm
- We have to find the rise in level of water when the sphere is completely immersed

Step 1 of 1:

We have a iron sphere with diameter 12cm.

Now the volume of the sphere will be

= 72π

Now we know that the volume of sphere will be equal to volume of water displaced by it.

So, Rise in volume of water will be = 72π

So,

h = 0.5cm

So, The rise in level of water when the sphere is completely immersed will be h = 0.5cm .
