Given radius of the well = 5 m Height of the well = 14 m Width of the embankment = 5 m Therefore radius of the embankment = 5 + 5 = 10 m Let h be the height of the embankment Hence the volume of the embankment = volume of the wellï¿½ That is Ï€(R â€“ r)2h =ï¿½Ï€r2h (102ï¿½â€“ 52) x hï¿½=ï¿½52ï¿½x 14 (100 â€“ 25) x h = 25 x 14 h = (25 x 14)/75 = 14/3 Therefore, h = 4.67 cm
