The diameter of a sphere is measured to be 5.36 in. Find (a) the radius of the sphere in centimeters, (b) the surface area of the sphere in square centimeters, and (c) the volume of the sphere in cubic centimeters.

(a)

To determine
The radius of the sphere in centimeter unit.

Explanation

Given Info: The diameter of sphere is 5.36in.

Formula to calculate the radius of the sphere is,

r=d2

• d is diameter of the sphere,
• r is radius of the sphere,

From unit transformation,

1in=2.54cm

Substitute 5.36 in for d to find r .

r=(5.36in2)(2

(b)

To determine
The surface area of the sphere in square centimeter unit.

(c)

To determine
The volume of the sphere in cubic centimeter unit.
