Volume and Surface Area of Spheres

Free and premium, printable “Volume and Surface Area of Spheres Worksheets!”
Imagine you have a basketball. The amount of air needed to fill it up is the volume. The amount of rubber needed to create the ball is the surface area.

The formula for the volume of a sphere is V = 4/3 π r³
The formula for the surface area of a sphere is SA = 4π r²

In both equations, r is the radius of the sphere (the distance from the center of the sphere to a point on its surface).

These formulas are harder to remember than most volume and surface area formulas, so it’s important to get a lot of practice.
