Consider a cylinder with radius = 5 cm and height = 20 cm. The cylinder is placed vertically on the ground and water is filled in to a height of 10 cm from the ground. Now the cylinder is closed from the top and it is placed on the ground horizontally. Find the new height of water from the ground .

Find the volume of the water when the cylinder is vertically upwards.
I have tried all. Couldn't crack it.

Just do it.
I will tell you what to do next. I might have got it just by looking at the question.
V = 250pi
So, what next ?
All you need to know:
Do you know how to calculate the volume of apartial cylinder?
Nopes I don't, am referring to the link @frx gave .
|dw:1359279395322:dw| \[\Large{A=\int_{-5}^h 2\sqrt{5^2-y^2}} \;\mathrm dy\]
Found this. The first suggestion works for a *vertical* cylinder, but not for a horizontal one. Your first step will depend on the fluid level in the tank... You start the same way, . I'm assuming it's a circular cylinder, where If the cylinder is more than half full, you'll want to start with the volume of the full cylinder, V = r^2*length*pi then subtract the unfilled space at the top. The cross-section of this empty space takes the form of a circular segment, whose area is given by the formula A = 1/2 * r^2 * (x - sin(x)) where r is the circle's radius, and x is the angle (measured in radians) formed between the two radii drawn from the points on the tank wall where the fluid level ends. Multiply this area by the cylinder's length to obtain the volume of empty space. Subtract this number from the full cylinder's volume to arrive at your fluid volume. If the cylinder is less than half full, you'll do something similar...only this time you'll be finding the cross sectional area of the fluid sitting on the bottom of the tank and multiplying that by the tank's length to find the volume. You can also use this method if the tank is exactly half'll see that the angle between the two radii is flat (pi radians), forming a diameter...and as sin(pi) = 0, the area formula reduces to A= (1/2) * r^2 * pi
it's \[\Large A=\int_{-5}^{5+h}2\sqrt{25-y^2}\;\mathrm dy\]|dw:1359279823727:dw|
@Azteck how do I find "x" ?
that's \(-5+h\) for the upper limit.
I am unable to follow, @sirm3d
i'm sorry. i assumed you know integral calculus.
I do know integral calculus .
Wait, am getting it, 2 mins.
it's the area under the curve.
How do you get 5^2 - y^2 ?
oh wait,
So you're finding the length of an element at a distance y from origin.
Ah ok so our working eqn will be A(20) = 250pi Where A =integral (2 sqrt(25 -y^2)) from y= -5 to (-5+h)
in the process, you will be deriving the area bounded by the arc and a chord. you can also derive the area as the difference between the area of the sector of a circle and the isosceles triangle.
=>[ sqrt(25-y^2) + 25sin^-1( y/5) ] from y=-5 to -5+h = 25pi/2 =>( sqrt( 25 - (h-5)^2) + 25sin^-1((h-5)/5) ) = 25pi am getting complex solutions, please someone confirm.
Oh wait, RHS will be 0 ./
got it
Seems fine thanks a lot @sirm3d
Isnt it simply 5 cm as volume of water =1/2 volume of cylinder
I see your point, I guess it won't be 5 since the area does not increases uniformly as we move up from ground level when it is placed horizontally. Area around center is more than at the bottom; or at top.
When cylinder was placed vertically, area was increasing uniformly,but not in the case of horizontal positioning.
|dw:1359287336567:dw| If I will cut the cylinder from the diameter in two parts won't their volume be equal
Indeed! Re-checked my calculations! It is 5 only!
It was real simple then, guess calculus would have been involved only if, say, radius was 4 cm. hm, thanks @sauravshakya and @sirm3d
