Best answer

Solution: The greatest diameter = side of the cube = 7 cm

Surface Area of Solid = Surface Area of Cube – Surface Area of Base of Hemisphere + Curved Surface Area of hemisphere

Surface Area of Cube = 6 x Side2

= 6 x 7 x 7 = 294 sq cm

Surface Area of Base of Hemisphere

10 surface area volume exercise solution

Curved Surface Area of Hemisphere = 2 x 38.5 = 77 sq cm

Total Surface Area = 294 – 38.5 + 77 = 332.5 sq cm
