Given radius of the cylinder, r = 12 cm It is also given that a spherical iron ball is dropped into the cylinder and the water level raised by 6.75 cm Hence volume of water displaced = volume of the iron ball Height of the raised water level, h = 6.75 m Volume of water displaced = Ï€r2h = Ï€ Ã— 12 Ã— 12 Ã— 6.75 cm3 â‡’ Volume of iron ball = Ï€ Ã— 12 Ã— 12 Ã— 6.75 cm3 â†’ (1) But, volume of iron ball = From (1) and (2) we get â‡’ r3 = 33 âˆ´ r = 9  Thus the radius of the iron ball is 9 cm
