How To: Find the volume of a sphere with radius r

Find the volume of a sphere with radius r

Are you slightly rusty on your math skills? This video demonstrates how to find the volume of a sphere with a given radius. The first step is to sketch a solid and cross-sectional view of your sphere to get an understanding of the process to come. Next, find a formula for the area of this cross-section. Third, find the limits of integration. This will allow you to take the area of each cross-section in the sphere, not just the singular one you are viewing. Lastly, integrate this formula from your limits to produce the volume of a sphere with a given radius.
