# A right circular cylinder just encloses a sphere of radius $ r $ (see in figure below). Find

**(i)** surface area of the sphere,

**(ii)** curved surface area of the cylinder,

**(iii)** ratio of the areas obtained in (i) and (ii).

"

Given:

A right circular cylinder just encloses a sphere of radius \( r \).

To do:

We have to find

(i) surface area of the sphere,

(ii) curved surface area of the cylinder,

(iii) ratio of the areas obtained in (i) and (ii).

Solution:

(i) Surface area of a sphere of radius $r = 4\pi r^2$

(ii) Height of cylinder $h =$ Diameter of the sphere

$=r+r$

$=2r$

Therefore,

The height of the cylinder is $2r$.

The radius of the cylinder $= r$

The curved surface area of the cylinder $= 2\pi rh$

$= 2\pi r(2r)$

$= 4\pi r^2$

(iii) Ratio of the surface area of the sphere to the curved surface area of the cylinder$=4\pi r^2:4\pi r^2$

$= 1:1$

The ratio of the areas obtained in (i) and (ii) is $1:1$.
