so if c=10
v=1000/6π=500/3π≈16.8869
sa=100/π≈31.831
.

You need to manipulate the circumference so that it becomes the radius, which you can then use to find the volume and surface area.

C = 2πr, which means that r = C÷2π.

We know that V = 4/3πr³ and SA = 4πr², so combining these with the above gives that V = C³/6π² and SA = C²/π.

Sorry I didn't go into much detail. Feel free to ask again if you're still stuck.

Hi, I just wanted to know how do you find the volume and surface area of a sphere when they only give you the Circumference of it?

For example, C=10ft

thx!
