#### Solution

Let the radius of base and height of the solid right circular cylinder be *r* cm and *h* cm, respectively.

According to the question,

r+h=37 .....(1)

Total surface area=1628 sq cm

2πr(r+h)=1628 .....(2)

From (1) and (2), we get

2πr(37)=1628

⇒ 2πr=44

`=>2xx22/7xxr=44`

`=>r=(44xx7)/(2xx22)`

⇒ r = 7 cm

Substituting the value of *r* in (1), we get

7+h=37

⇒ h = 30 cm

Now,

Volume of the cylinder = πr^{2}h

`=22/7xx7xx7xx30`

=4,620 cm^{3}

Hence, the volume of the cylinder is 4,620 cm^{3}.
