Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The formulas are as follows 1. Circumference of great circle = 2(pi)r 2. Surface of Sphere = 4(pi)r^2 3. Volume of the sphere = 4/3(pi)r^3 where r is the radius of the sphere.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the great circle would be =20pi surface= 400pi volume=4188.79

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, you have to express the units too. the circumference of great circle is 20pi mm. The surface area is 400pi mm^2 and the volume is 4000pi/3 mm^3. Always remember, a number has no significance unless you have its unit of measure next to it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what if you had the great circle of 36pi in, and you had to find the radius, surface, volume?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Have you done equations? In this case, 2(pi)r = 36(pi). You'll have to find r, and then plug it into the other formulas I gave you.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so divide 36pi by 2pi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, so the radius = 18. Now you should be able to calculate the surface area and volume using the formulas I gave you.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for some reason, you're leaving out the pi in the volume. Also, you're leaving out the units (in^3).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but is volume right? in terms of pi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No  it is 4/3 * pi * 18^3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so being in the terms of pi it would be=432pi in^3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay i did 18*18 for some reason...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no worries  but you have to memorize the formulas. And use them in an equation. If you're given the volume, then you can easily find the radius. From the radius, you can find the surface area, the circumference etc.
