A hollow crystal is made of glass that is 3 cm thick. The ball has a radius to the outside surface of 8 cm.

What is the approximate volume of glass used to make the ball?


Use 3.14 to approximate π

Volume of the 8cm sphere - volume of 5 cm sphere = glass volume

volume of a sphere = 4/3 pi r^3     Get your calculations on !

= 4/3 pi (8^3 - 5^3)   = 516 pi = 1620.2 cm^3

No you don't......you are dealing with radii     one radius is  8 the inner is 5

since it is hollow, you need to take the whole volume minus the air inside

 

 

heres a diagram ish

 

  |       |                      |       |

|       |         inside         |       |<------- outside glass

  |       |                      |       |

    3cm     2cm            3cm

 <<---------8cm-------------->>

so, thats the ball

now we find volume

v=4/3 pi r2

8cm= 2144.66 cm

2cm=33.51cm

2144.66-33.51= 2111.15cm^2

hope that helped
