Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Volume of a sphere of radius r is \(V=\frac{4}{3}\pi r^3 \) \(dV/dr = \frac{4}{3}\pi (3)r2 = 4\pi r^2\), or \(dV = \frac{4}{3}\pi (3)r2~dr = 4\pi r^2~dr\) where dr=0.01" and r=3". If you think of the situation physically, 4 pi r^2 is the surface area of the sphere. Multiply that by the error thickness will give you the error in volume.
