Students need to substitute the value of the radius in the formula V = 4/3 πr^3 to find the volume of the sphere. For example, Ammi bought a snow globe during a recent vacation to New York City. The globe is a hemisphere with a diameter of 3 inches.

If the radius of a sphere is 3 in, then the formula V = 4/3 πr^3 becomes V= 4/3π(3)^3. After simplifications, the final value can be V=36π cubic inches. The volume of the hemisphere is half of the volume of sphere, therefore the volume of Ammi’s snow globe is 18π cubic inches.

Volume
8.G.C.9

In 8th Grade, students learn how to find the volume of 3D figures such as spheres, and hemispheres. A sphere is a ball-shaped figure and a hemisphere is a bowl-shaped figure. The volume of a sphere is V = 4/3 πr^3, where r is the radius of the sphere and the volume of the hemisphere is half of the volume of a sphere.
