    1) Find volume of the sphere 2) Equate the volume of sphere with formula of volume of cylinder to find increase in height

    V of sphere= (4/3) r^3 =(4/3) 5^3 =500/3

    V of cyl=pi r^2h =pi(5^2) (20) =500pi

    Volume of cylinder = pir^2 h = 500pi volume of sphere immersed = 4/3pi r^3 = 500pi/3 New volume of cylinder = Initial cylinder volume + Sphere volume. pi*25*h = 500pi +500pi/3 h = 20(4/3) =80/3 hence change in height = h-20 = 20/3
