Explanation:

 

Sphere

 


 

A two-dimensional perspective projection of a sphere

 

 

A sphere (from Greek σφαρα-sphaira, "globe, ball") is a perfectly round geometrical object in three-dimensional space, such as the shape of a round ball. Like a circle in two dimensions, a perfect sphere is completely symmetrical around its center, with all points on the surface lying the same distance r from the center point. This distance r is known as the radius of the sphere. The maximum straight distance through the sphere is known as the diameter of the sphere. It passes through the center and is thus twice the radius.

 

Volume of a sphere

 

In 3 dimensions, the volume inside a sphere (that is, the volume of a ball) is given by the formula

where r is the radius of the sphere and π is the constant pi. (Our solved example in mathguru.com uses this concept)
