Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0write equation relating volume to surface area v= 4/3 Pi r^3 S= 4 Pi r^2 v= s/3 r dv/ds= 1/3r dv= 1/3 r ds

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We would still need r though right? or do you think they want the answer in terms of r?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.6Shut up Hero, people don't need to know that i dont know basic maths. v= s/3r? where did that come from?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0*minor correction v= 4/3 Pi r^3 S= 4 Pi r^2 v= (s r)/3 dv/ds= r/3 dv= r/3 ds (12*3 Pi)/r= ds
