## Volume & Surface Area of Spheres

Volume tells us the amount of space inside a given 3D shape. Surface area tells us the area of the surface of a 3D shape.Think of it in terms of an apple. The volume is the total amount of apple, and the

__s__urface area is the amount of__s__kin on the apple.### Volume and Surface Area of Spheres Calculator

#### Step 1. Determine if youβre solving for volume (V) or surface area (SA).

### Recap π§’ How to Find the Volume and Surface Area of a Sphere

#### Step 1. Determine if youβre solving for volume (V) or surface area (SA).

What are you trying to solve for?

We're looking for the volume, or the total amount of space inside the sphere, which is like the total amount of apple.

#### Step 2. Find the radius of the sphere.

The radius is the distance from the center of the sphere to the surface.

#### Step 3. Calculate the volume with the radius.
