## Calculator Use

This online calculator will calculate the 3 unknown values of a sphere given any 1 known variable including radius r, surface area A, volume V and circumference C. It will also give the answers for volume, surface area and circumference in terms of PI π. A sphere is a set of points in three dimensional space that are located at an equal distance r (the radius) from a given point (the center point).

Units: Note that units are shown for convenience but do not affect the calculations. The units are in place to give an indication of the order of the results such as ft, ft2 or ft3. For example, if you are starting with mm and you know r in mm, your calculations will result with A in mm2, V in mm3 and C in mm.

## Sphere Formulas in terms of radius r:

• Volume of a sphere:
• V = (4/3)πr3
• Circumference of a sphere:
• C = 2πr
• Surface area of a sphere:
• A = 4πr2
Volume of a Sphere
in terms of
$V = \frac{4}{3}\pi r^3$
$V \approx 4.1888r^3$
in terms of
surface area
$V = \frac{A^{3/2}}{6\sqrt{\pi}}$
$V \approx 0.09403A^{3/2}$
in terms of
circumference
$V = \frac{C^3}{6\pi^2}$
$V \approx 0.01689C^3$
Surface Area of a Sphere
in terms of
$A = 4 \pi r^2$
$A \approx 12.5664r^2$
in terms of
volume
$A = \pi^{1/3} (6V)^{2/3}$
$A \approx 4.83598V^{2/3}$
in terms of
circumference
$A = \frac{C^2}{\pi}$
$A \approx 0.3183C^2$
in terms of
volume
$r = \left(\frac{3V}{4 \pi}\right)^{1/3}$
$r \approx 0.62035V^{1/3}$
in terms of
surface area
$r = \sqrt{\frac{A}{4 \pi}}$
$r \approx 0.2821 \sqrt{A}$
in terms of
circumference
$r = \frac{C}{2 \pi}$
$r \approx 0.1592C$
Circumference of a Sphere
in terms of
$C = 2 \pi r$
$C \approx 6.2832r$
in terms of
volume
$C = \pi^{2/3} (6V)^{1/3}$
$C \approx 3.89778V^{1/3}$
in terms of
surface area
$C = \sqrt{\pi A}$
$C \approx 1.77245\sqrt{A}$
