Q:
# The sphere's radius is one-third the radius of the hemisphere. How does the volume of this hemisphere compare with the volume of the sphere?

Accepted Solution

A:

Volume of the sphere = 3/4 pi r^3

The spheres radius is one third of the hemisphere's so radius of hemisphere = 3r

Volume of the hemisphere = 1/2 * 4/3 pi (3r)^3

= 2/3 * 27 pi r^3

= 18 pi r^3

So vol hemisphere / vol sphere = 18 pi r^3 / 4/3 pi r^3 = 18 * 3/4 = 13.5

Hemisphere is 13.5 times the volume of the sphere.

The spheres radius is one third of the hemisphere's so radius of hemisphere = 3r

Volume of the hemisphere = 1/2 * 4/3 pi (3r)^3

= 2/3 * 27 pi r^3

= 18 pi r^3

So vol hemisphere / vol sphere = 18 pi r^3 / 4/3 pi r^3 = 18 * 3/4 = 13.5

Hemisphere is 13.5 times the volume of the sphere.
