3.

A portion of an embankment having a uniform up-gradient 1 in 500 is circular with radius 1000 m of the centre line. It subtends 180° at the centre. If the height of the bank is 1 m at the lower end, and side slopes 2:1, the earth work involved.

 [A]. 26, 000 m3 [B]. 26, 500 m3 [C]. 27, 000 m3 [D]. 27, 500 m3

 Jyotitak said: (Aug 11, 2014) Please tell me how to calculate this ?

 Nila said: (Aug 13, 2014) Is there any formula for this to calculate?

 Prince said: (Aug 31, 2014) Can anybody please tell how it is calculated ?

 Ramesh said: (Feb 9, 2015) Determined. The area of circle and depth and height multiply them got it means volume.

 Ritu said: (Mar 9, 2015) It may theta equal length/radius for a curve than length equal radius multiply angle theta than put formula 2.L.D. root of s. Here s equal 2.

 Naveen said: (Jul 20, 2015) Please tell the formula.

 Mayuri said: (Aug 4, 2015) How to calculate?

 Puspanjali said: (Aug 16, 2015) How it is calculated? What is the formula?

 Yogita said: (Aug 26, 2015) How can I calculate it?

 Durga said: (Sep 2, 2015) How to calculated this?

 Janu Saibabu said: (Sep 7, 2015) How can get this answer?

 Jagdish said: (Oct 13, 2015) How can calculated this?

 Ranjitha said: (Apr 21, 2016) For 2:1 slope top radius is 500m, and we have bottom radius is 1000m. Volume of truncated cone is 3.14*h*((R*R) + (r*r) + (R*r))*(1/3). = 3.14*1**((1000*1000) + (500*500) + (1000*500))*(1/3). = 27500.

 Souvik De said: (Nov 14, 2016) Volume of truncated cone= 3.14 * h * ((R * R) + (r * r) + [(R * r)) * (1/3)]. = 3.14 * 1 *((1000 * 1000) + (500 * 500) + (1000 * 500)) * (1/3). = 27500.

 Rajni said: (Jan 11, 2017) Please explain the Solution.

 Shankar C said: (Feb 10, 2017) I tried this by using the truncated cone formula. But I cannot get answer anyone explain me clearly?

 Santi said: (Mar 2, 2017) Not understanding, please explain the solution.

 Salman said: (Mar 9, 2017) 3.14 * 1 * ((1000*1000) + (500 * 500) + (1000*500)) * (1/3) = 1831666.666 Not 27500 why?

 Momin Ali said: (Apr 7, 2017) The formula value is 1831666.666 not 27500. I agree @Salman.

 Engr. Asghar Ali said: (May 22, 2017) Following the data are missing of embankments like Length, top width and super elevation.

 Nesti said: (Jun 29, 2017) Please, explain in detail.

 Chethan Rathod said: (Sep 3, 2017) It only possible h is not 1.5 I guess slope is 2:1, so according to right angle law. 2^2- 1^2 = 1.7 then only possible. v= 1/3*3.14*h*(r1^2+r1*r2+r2^2).

 B.Somu Suel said: (Nov 17, 2017) How to calculate this problem?

 Garry said: (Nov 22, 2017) Right @Chethan.

 Aamir said: (Dec 22, 2017) I think width of the embankment is missing in question. I am correct?

 Shandelin Priyanka said: (Jul 16, 2018) How to calculate this? Please explain the solution.

 Pradeep Kumar said: (Aug 17, 2018) How to calculate this? please explain.

 Sanaya said: (Sep 24, 2018) How to calculate this?

 Santhosh Kumar said: (Dec 28, 2018) If slope 2:3 then what is the answer? Please explain.

 Maneesh Yadav said: (Feb 16, 2019) No, it is wrong because this formula is used to calculate the volume cut cone where r = upper portion radius and are is the bottom portion radius.

 Raj said: (Mar 12, 2019) Please tell me, clearly how to calculate that answer.

 Sandip Rasal said: (Jun 30, 2019) How to calculate this? Please explain in detail.

 Bastengan said: (Jul 23, 2019) Can someone clarify the answer with a formula?

 Ranjan said: (Jul 28, 2019) How to calculate this? Explain in detail.

 Salini said: (Dec 6, 2019) How to calculate this?

 Girin said: (May 21, 2021) Haw to calculate it?
