I'm stuck on this question. For the cylinder on the top I got the volume to be 6^2 π x 72. It this correct? The mark scheme says it is 36^2 π x 12.

The area of a circle is pi x radius^2, i think you've confused diameter and radius, so to get the right answer halve the diameter to get the radius, find the are of the circle, then multiply by the height to find the correct volume.

isn't the diameter 12 so the radius must be 6. Also why does the mark scheme use 12 instead of 72??

This is what the mark scheme says.

Any luck with the question??

I haven't looked at the mark scheme but I think the radius is 3.6 cm and the cylinder height 1.2 cm The flat fac would be lying against the hemisphere.

How did you get radius of 36mm and height of 12mm??

The cylinder is upright - half of 72 mm = 3.6 cm

I though you work out the area of the circle at the end of the cylinder and times it by the length of the cylinder.

I think I've got it now.

You do - the cylinder is upright ie the circular faces are top and bottom of the side view you can see.

I was imagining it as a tube lying length ways

No - that would not made sense a tube lying on a hemisphere - they'd touch on a very small edge - not sensible for the context.

Have you worked out the diagram now? I'll tag CoolCavy if not
