Find the Radius of Each Sphere ?

If a hemisphere is melted and four spheres of equal volume are made, the radius of each sphere will be equal to

  1. 1/2 of the radius of the hemisphere
  2. radius of the hemisphere
  3. 1/6th of the radius of the hemisphere
  4. 1/4th of the radius of the hemisphere

    Answer is (1): 1/2 of the radius of the hemisphere

    Explanation:-
    Let the radius of hemisphere be R and the radius of sphere be r.

    The volume of the hemisphere = 2 pai R3/3
    It is divided in four sphere,
    The volume of a sphere = 2 pai R3/3 x 4

    Then, 4 pai r3/3 = 2 pai R3/3 x 4
     4 r3 = 2 R3/4
    4 r3 = R3/2
    R3 = 8 r3
    Cube root on both side,
    R = 2 r
    r = R/2

    Then, the radius of each sphere will be equal to 1/2 of the radius of the  hemisphere. 

    Hence, the answer is (1) 1/2 of the radius of the  hemisphere.
