66 cubic centimetres of silver is drawn into a wire 1 mm in diameter. The length of the wire in metres will be:
84
90
168
336
Explanation:

Let the length of the wire be h.

 Radius = 1 mm = 1 cm. Then, 2 20

 22 x 1 x 1 x h = 66. 7 20 20

 h = 66 x 20 x 20 x 7 = 8400 cm = 84 m. 22

v.ocyclinder= πr^2h.

Where π equals to 22/7.
22/7*1/20*1/20*h = 66,
11h/1400 = 66,
h = 92400/11,
h = 8400cm,
h = 8400/100m,
h = 84m.

Length of wire should be whole perimeter of cyclinder, why it is calculated same as height?

Why do they take 22/2 * 1/20 * 1/20? Please explain it.

@Surya.

22/7 approximately = 3.14.

Surya said:   4 years ago
How 22/7 possible?
Is it pi value?

π = 3. 144 right?

Without converting mm into cm answer will be the same ?

I can't understand this.

Prashanth said:   5 years ago
1cm = 10mm.

Jai said:   5 years ago
Because the wire is in the shape of a cylinder.
