A gulab jamun, contains sugar syrup up to about 30% of its volume. Find approximately how much syrup would be found in 45 gulab jamuns, each shaped like a cylinder with two hemispherical ends with length 5 cm and diameter 2.8 cm (see the given figure).[Use π = 22/7]

It can be observed that

Radius (r) of cylindrical part = Radius (r) of hemispherical part = 2.8/2 = 1.4 cm

Length of each hemispherical part = Radius of hemispherical part = 1.4 cm

Length (h) of cylindrical part = 5 − 2 × Length of hemispherical part

= 5 − 2 × 1.4 = 2.2 cm

Volume of one gulab jamun = Vol. of cylindrical part + 2 × Vol. of hemispherical part

Volume of 45 gulab jamuns =45 x 25.05 = 1,127.25 cm3 

Volume of sugar syrup = 30% of volume

= 30/100 x1127.25

= 338.17 cm3

= 338  cm3
