Volume - high school - math problems

1. Right circular cone The volume of a right circular cone is 5 liters. Calculate the volume of the two parts into which the cone is divided by a plane parallel to the base, one-third of the way down from the vertex to the base.
2. Right pyramid A right pyramid on a base 4 cm square has a slant edge of 6 cm. Calculate the volume of the pyramid.
3. Camel and water 84% of the camel's weight is water. After drinking, its weight increased to 832 kg and water accounted for 85% of its weight. How much did it weigh before drinking?
4. Base of prism The base of the perpendicular prism is a rectangular triangle whose legs length are at a 3: 4 ratio. The height of the prism is 2cm smaller than the larger base leg. Determine the volume of the prism if its surface is 468 cm2.
5. Pool If water flows into the pool by two inlets, fill the whole for 8 hours. The first inlet filled pool 6 hour longer than second. How long pool take to fill with two inlets separately?
6. TV transmitter The volume of water in the rectangular swimming pool is 6998.4 hectoliters. The promotional leaflet states that if we wanted all the pool water to flow into a regular quadrangle with a base edge equal to the average depth of the pool, the prism would have.
7. Cube in a sphere The cube is inscribed in a sphere with volume 3234 cm3. Determine the length of the edges of a cube.
8. Axial section Axial section of the cone is an equilateral triangle with area 208 dm2. Calculate the volume of the cone.
9. Cuboid Cuboid with edge a=16 cm and body diagonal u=45 cm has volume V=11840 cm3. Calculate the length of the other edges.
10. Cubes One cube is inscribed sphere and the other one described. Calculate difference of volumes of cubes, if the difference of surfaces in 257 mm2.
11. Transforming cuboid Cuboid with dimensions 6 cm, 10, and 11 cm is converted into a cube with the same volume. What is its edge length?
12. Pipes Water pipe has a cross-section 1087 cm2. An hour has passed 960 m3 of water. How much water flows through the pipe with cross-section 300 cm2 per 9 hours if water flow same speed?
13. Cylinders Area of the side of two cylinders is same rectangle of 50 cm × 11 cm. Which cylinder has a larger volume and by how much?
14. Cuboid diagonal Calculate the volume and surface area of the cuboid ABCDEFGH, which sides abc has dimensions in the ratio of 9:3:8 and if you know that the wall diagonal AC is 86 cm and angle between AC and the body diagonal AG is 25 degrees.
15. Sandpile Auto sprinkled with sand to an approximately conical shape. Workers wanted to determine the volume (amount of sand) and therefore measure the circumference of the base and the length of both sides of the cone (over the top). What is the volume of the san
16. Circular pool The base of pool is circle with a radius r = 10 m excluding circular segment that determines chord length 10 meters. Pool depth is h = 2m. How many hectoliters of water can fit into the pool?
17. Rotation The right triangle with legs 14 cm and 20 cm rotate around the longer leg. Calculate the volume and surface area of the formed cone.
18. Plastic pipe Calculate weight of the plastic pipe with diameter d = 70 mm and length 380 cm if the wall thickness is 4 mm and the density of plastic is 1367 kg/m3.
19. Tetrahedral pyramid Calculate the volume and surface area of a regular tetrahedral pyramid, its height is \$b cm and the length of the edges of the base is 6 cm.
20. Sphere slices Calculate volume and surface of a sphere, if the radii of parallel cuts r1=31 cm, r2=92 cm and its distance v=25 cm.
