**12.6 Surface Area & Volume of Spheres**

2
Definitions Sphere – the locus of points in space that are a given distance from a given point. (looks like a ball) Center of a Sphere – the given point in the middle. Radius of a Sphere – segment from the center to a point on the sphere. Chord of a Sphere – a segment whose endpoints are on the sphere. Diameter of a Sphere – a chord that goes through the center.

3
**C is the center of the sphere.**

Parts of a Sphere C is the center of the sphere. AB is a diameter. CB & AC are radii. DE & AB are chords. C A B E D

**Thm 12.11 – Surface Area of a Sphere**

S = 4r2 (it takes 4 circles to cover a sphere) Why isn’t there a lateral area formula? Because spheres have no bases! Ex: Find the surface area of a sphere with a diameter of 8 cm. S = 4(4)2 S = 4(16) S = 64 cm2

5
More Definitions Great Circle of a Sphere – the cross section of a sphere sliced by a plane through its center. Hemisphere – ½ of a sphere. ** Every great circle splits a sphere into 2 hemispheres.

6
**Ex: The circumference of a great circle of a sphere is 16 m**

Ex: The circumference of a great circle of a sphere is 16 m. What is the surface area of the sphere? S = 4r2 S = 4(8)2 S = 4(64) S = 256 m2 C = 2r 16 = 2r 16 = 2r 8 m = r

7
**Ex: Find the volume of a sphere with a radius of 3 ft.**

Thm – Volume of a Sphere Ex: Find the volume of a sphere with a radius of 3 ft. V = 36 ft3
