A particular brand of talcum powder is available in two packs,plastic can with a square base of side 5cm and of height 14 cm,or one with a circular base of

radius 3.5 cm and of height 12 cm.which of them has greater capacity and by how much?


Square  base   side = 5cm, height = 14cm
so we can find the volume of cubiod for this 
 volume of square base pack = lxbxh
                                                  = 5x5x14 = 350 cm cube
whereas circle base
 volume of cylinder = pi*r^2 * h
                               = 22/7 * 3.5 * 3.5 *12
                               = 462 cm cube
so, circular base is greater capacity
 difference = 462-350
                     =112 cm cube
