Question a: Mass = Density × Volume Density = Mass/Volume Volume of the tree trunk (the shape of Cylinder) = Area of circular base × height Volume = [πr²] × h Volume = [π × 0.25²] × 20 Volume = 3.93 m³ Density = 380 kg/m³ Mass = Density × Volume Mass = 380 × 3.93 Mass = 1493.4 kg ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Question b) The growth ring = 4 millimeters = 4÷1000 = 0.004 New diameter = 0.5 + 0.004 = 0.5004 New height = 20 + 0.2 = 20.2 New volume = [πr²] × h New volume = [π × 0.2502²] × 20.2 New volume = 3.97 m³
