Solution:

Given, radius of wheel, r = 35 cm

Circumference of the wheel = 2πr

= 2 x \((\frac { 22 }{ 7 } )\) x 35 = 220 cm

But speed of the wheel = 66 kmh^{-1
}= \((\frac { 66 x 1000 }{ 60 } )\) m/ mm

= 1100 x 100 cm min^{-1
}= 110000 cm min^{-1}^{

= \((\frac { 110000 }{ 220 } )\)= 500 revolution

Hence, required number of revolutions per minute is 500.

Solution:

Diameter of circular pond (d) = 17.5 m

Radius (r) =\((\frac { 1725 }{ 2 } )\) = 8.75 m

Width of path = 2m

∴ Radius of outer cirlce (R) = 8.75 + 2 = 10.75 m

Area of path = (R^{2} – r^{2})π

= [(10.75)^{2} – (8.75)^{2}](3.14)

= 3.14(10.75 + 8.75) (10.75 – 8.75)

= 3.14 x 19.5 x 2 = 122.46 m^{2
}Cost of 1 m^{2} for constructing the path ₹25 m^{2

Question 31.

Prove that the area of a circular path of uniform width hsurrounding a circular region of radius r is πh(2r + h).

Solution:

Radius of inner circle = r

Width of path = h

∴ Outer radius (R) = (r + h)

∴ Area of path = πR^{2} – πr^{2
}= π {(r + h)^{2} – r^{2}}

= π {r^{2} + h^{2} + 2rh – r^{2}}

= π {2rh + h^{2}}

= πh (2r + h) Hence proved.
