A cylindrical job with diameter of $200$ $mm$ and height of $100$ $mm$ is to be cast using modulus method of riser design. Assume that the bottom surface of cylindrical riser does not contribute as cooling surface. If the diameter of the riser is equal to its height, then the height of the riser (in $mm$) is $150$ $200$ $100$ $125$
