# Finding the volume of a sphere (diameter given)

(USA)

##### Question
Find the volume of the sphere where its diameter is 15 inches. Take π=3.14.

Now, let's take a look at the sphere below:

Alright, since we are finding the volume of a sphere, we will be using the following volume formula:

where π is a number that is approximately equals to 3.14 (or use the number given to you) and r is the radius of the sphere.

Note that, to use the formula, we need the value of the radius. Since the radius is half of the diameter, we can find the value of the radius by dividing 15 with 2. This is shown below:

With the radius, r=7.5 inches, we can calculate for the volume of the sphere as shown below:

Now, it is important to include the unit. Since the radius is in inches. The volume will be in cubic inches. Therefore:

 Nov 19, 2018 Rating volume of sphere NEW by: Dr Pete Clinicians are not taught a quick, 'in your head' estimation of volume of spherical tissue masses; if there were to be a 5-centimeter-diameter mass in the lung [visible on imaging], I can 'snap back' that its approximate volume would be 65 milliliters. >> How to estimate: given the diameter of the mass, it will occupy very nearly one-half the volume of a cube with sides of the diameter's length. Derivation: 4/3 pi radius cubed --> 4/3 pi approx. equals 4. radius is diameter/2; radius cubed is diameter cubed/2 cubed; 4/8 = 1/2. I emphasize, this is an estimate; but quite adequate for clinical purposes, and much quicker than doing the exact calculation. Colleagues: petepirotte hotmail

 Feb 21, 2018 Rating Wrong answer at the last but right formula NEW by: Anonymous Sir the answer is wrong because the right answer is 1324.68750 or if you round up1324.69 baut thanks for the formula.

 Apr 01, 2016 Rating Too long ago NEW by: jimbarry1946 I'm a retired math teacher, but it's been so many years since I used this I had forgotten the formula. I wanted to know how much the volume increased when the radius doubled. Now I know--it's eight times because the two is cubed. Thank you.
