How to draw a hemisphere on cylindrical curved surface

Please let me know how to draw a hemisphere on cylindrical curved surface. I tried using work plane (tangent plane to the curved surface), but it didn't worked. I am not able to join the flat hemispherical surface with the curved cylindrical surface. Please help me.

Not sure if I've understood exactly what you're trying to do, but here's my attempt (Inventor 2009 format)

Thanks , this is exactly what I wanted. Sorry for being late. I had given up hope. Can you please let me know how you did it. As the cylinder is having a curved surface and how to put a hemisphere on it which is having a flat surface. I have noticed the work plane in your drawing is not parallel to any of 3 planes (namely XY , XZ or YZ).
Thanks again.

If you edit the sketches you will see a line used to create the user Workplane.

Check this one - maybe it will be easier to understand.

Hi jmather

Please find the attached file (cyl.ipt -- Autodesk 2009 format). I tried to draw a hemisphere on a cylindrical surface, but unable to do so as cylinder has a curved surface and hemisphere has a flat surface. Can't join these 2 parts together.
Thanks
