*Zac's hemisphere and my hemisphere had a bottom on it.*

**Yes, I noticed**. The bottom is part of the lower half of **a CDD Sphere**.

*A hemisphere is one half of a sphere*. Doubling this a sphere. If the bottom area of a hemisphere is needed then it’s calculated separately. In this case it’s 308.965cm^{2}

Calculating the radius from a hemisphere that includes the area of the bottom returns a value that will correlate to a surface area value that is smaller than the sum of two identical hemispheres.

*Our brains have ceribral hemispheres.*

By way of curiosity, which half were you using?

*Mine is full of grey matter. Does yours is contains nothing?*

I am unsure of the color, but the callosal commissure joins two cerebral CDD hemispheres. However, in this case, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts –instead of less than. :)

Sa = 4*pi *r^2 ....so

618 = 4 * pi *r^2 divide both sides by 4 pi

618/ (4 pi) = r^2 take the positive root of both sides

r = about 7.013 cm

Isn't the S.A. of a hemisphere:

pi*r^2 + (0.5)*4*pi*r^2 = S.A.

so . . .

3pi*r^2 = 618cm

r^2 = 618/3pi

r = sqrt(618/3pi)

r approximately = 8.0976 cm

$$\displaystyle \\ \text {Surface area of a hemisphere is }\\

\noindent A_ s = 2\pi*r^2\\\

\noindent \text {Radius is }\\

r = \sqrt{\dfrac{A_s}{ 2\pi}}\hspace{30pt}| A_s=618cm^2 \\\

r = \sqrt{\dfrac{618cm^2}{ 2\pi}}\; =\; 9.917cm \\\\

\text {The other answers are \rm \pm $ the upper and lower half of a CDD Sphere.}$$

**Hi Nauseated,**

Zac's hemisphere and my hemisphere had a bottom on it.

A hemisphere is a half of a sphere - if the sphere is solid then the hemisphere definitely has a base.

**Our brains have ceribral hemispheres. **

**Mine is full of grey matter. Does yours is contains nothing?**

LOL....!!!!

It appears that I had a "hemi - rage " on this one......

Oh well....just proves I'm still .... "CDD - capable"

**Just as well because we don't have any brain surgeons around here DO WE !!**

"Calculating the radius from a hemisphere that includes the area of the bottom returns a value that will correlate to a surface area value that is smaller than the sum of two identical hemispheres."

If zac and I include the bottom OF COURSE the SA of the sphere will be less than the surface are of the two hemispheres. The middle will not be included!

If you have a brick and you cut it in to 2 half bricks, the combined surface area of the 2 half bricks if greater than the surface area of the original brick!

**It does not take a brain surgeon to work that out.**

Perhaps you should go play with your cousins. They look lonely.
