Correct Answer - Option 2 : 0.07 m

Given:

Radius of sphere = 14 cm

Radius of cone = 7 cm

Height of cone = h

Number of cones formed = 32

Formula Used:

Volume of sphere = 4/3 × πR3

Volume of cone = 1/3 × πr2h

Calculation:

Volume of sphere = 4/3 × πR3

⇒ 4/3 × π × 143
Volume of cone = 1/3 × πr2h

⇒ 1/3 × π × 72 × h

According to question –

⇒ 4/3 × π × 143 = 32 × 1/3 × π × 72 × h

⇒ (4 × 143) = 32 × 72 × h

⇒ h = 7 cm

⇒ h = 0.07 m

∴ The height of the cone (h) is 0.07 m.
