Homework Help: Homework measuring spheres

  1. May 16, 2005 #1
    I have homework, the teacher gave us measuring spheres. He gave us the formula (4/3 π r3) But he didn't show us how to figure out the problem.
    I don't know how your suppose to figure it out.

    What's the problem? Do you want to know the derivation of the formula or a proof?

    The equation you stated it the equation for the volume of a sphere where "r" represents the radius of the sphere (the distance from the centre of the sphere to edge) and Pi is the constant 3.14....

    You should be able to work things from there.
