# Volume of a Sphere

## What is the volume of a sphere?

The volume of a sphere is the amount of space that a sphere takes up. Imagine a basketball that occupies space. How much space does it occupy?

The volume is to calculate this space. Then how would you calculate volume?

Volume is different from area in that it is 3 dimensional, therefore it will be cubic (cm3, m3, etc.) rather than square. ## Equation for Volume of a sphere

The equation for the volume of a sphere is Note that the only variable is r, which is the radius. Beware that if you are given the diameter, you need to convert into r using this equation: Your teacher can also ask you to calculate the volume of a hemisphere. What is a hemisphere? Imagine cutting the basketball in half. A hemisphere is half of a sphere, therefore its volume is halved:  ## Example of Volume of a sphere

Find the volume of the sphere. Round to the nearest cubic centimeter. 1) Write the volume of the sphere formula: 2) Find the radius of the sphere from the figure: 3) Substitute 5 cm for r in the formula: 4) Simplify: Therefore, the volume of the sphere is about 523 cm3.

## Practice Problems for Volume of a sphere

1. Find the volume of the sphere if the diameter is 42 cm. Round to the nearest cubic meter. 2. Find the volume of the sphere if it has a radius of 3 cm. Round to the nearest cubic kilometer. ## Take Home Pointsfor Volume of a sphere

• Equation for the volume of a sphere is • Ensure that the units are correct

• Units are cubic (cm3, m3, etc)

• Convert diameter into radius so you can plug r into the equation Volume of a small Sphere

### Our Approach of Tutoring

At QEA, we focus on tutoring the students and build his or her foundation and understanding. Our tutoring approach facilitates independent thinking, so that our students can analyze the questions properly. Our tutors go through math and science lessons step by step, and make sure that you have a firm foundation before they move onto more complex math and science concepts.

1. Step by step explanation

For our science and math tutoring programs, we focus on providing step by step explanations during the tutoring session, facilitating the student’s understanding of the math and science concepts.

2. Building Foundations

Math and science are cumulative. Therefore, building a good foundation is important for the student’s long-term success. In our math and science tutoring, we focus on clarifying the student’s knowledge gaps to help them build a good foundation in math and science.

3. Organize Knowledge

Our tutors will categorize types of problems and organize knowledge making it easier for students to retain
