A spherical ball fits snugly inside a cylindrical jar, so that the ball touches the top and bottom of the jar, and the sides of the jar.  The volume of the cylinder is $144 \pi.$  What is the difference between the surface area of the sphere and the lateral surface area of the cylinder?

What is the difference between the surface area of the sphere and the lateral surface area of the cylinder?

Hello tomtom!

 

\(V_c =\pi r^2\cdot 2r=2\pi r^3=144\\ r=(\dfrac{72}{\pi })^{\frac{1}{3}}\)

 

\(LS_c=2\pi r^2+2\pi r\cdot 2r=2\pi r^2(1+2)=6\pi r^2\\ SA_s=4\pi r^2\\ LS_c-SA_s= 2\pi r^2=2\pi \cdot (\dfrac{72}{\pi })^{\frac{2}{3}} \\ \color{blue}LS_c-SA_s=50.6954\)

 

The surface area of the sphere and the lateral surface area of the cylinder is 50.6954.
