Volume of a sphere

The volume of a sphere can be found by the formula:

Vol = 4/3 * pi * r³

One example: assuming that the Earth is spherical and its radius in Ecuador is 6378 km, we can calculate the volume of our planet with the application of this formula:

Vol = 4/3 * pi * r³
Vol = 4/3 * 3.14 * (6 378 km)³
Vol = 4/3 * 3.14 * 2.59 * 10¹¹ km³
Vol = 1.086 * 10¹² km³

Other example: Find the volume of a sphere of radius 9.6 m, rounding your answer to two decimal places.

Vol = 4/3 * pi * r³
Vol = 4/3 * 3.14 * (9,6)³
Vol = 3705,97 m³
