The surface area of a sphere can be calculated using the following formula, where r is the radius of the sphere
The volume of a sphere can be calcuated using the following formula, where r is the radius of the sphere
In order to compare the surfrace area and volume of a sphere, we are going to look differnt radius values of balls.
|Type of Ball||Radius (in inches)|
Calculate the surface area and volume for the above spheres, using Microsoft Excel. Next, use your graphing tool to graph the surface area and volume on the same axis.
