Question

    A well with 42 m inside diameter is dug 14 m deep. Soil taken out of it has been evenly spread all around it to a width of 21 m to form an embankment. Find the height of the embankment. 

    A 2.5 m Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
    B 3.4 m Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
    C 5.2 m Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
    D 4.6 m Correct Answer Incorrect Answer
    E None of these Correct Answer Incorrect Answer

    Solution

    Volume of the soil dug out = πr²h ⟹(22/7x21 x 21 x 14) = 19,404 m³. Area of embankment = Area of embankment with well - Area of well  = (22/7 x 42 x 42) - (22/7 x 21 x 21) = 4,714 m² Height of embankment = Volume/Area = 19404/4714 = 4.11 m (approx.)
