radius = diameter/2

radius = 6.5/2           =      \(\frac{13}{4}\)   m

 

volume  \(=\frac43 \, * \, \pi \, *\, (\text{radius})^3 \\~\\ =\frac43 \, * \, \pi \, *\, (\frac{13}{4})^3 \\~\\ =\frac43\,*\,\pi\,*\,\frac{2197}{64} \\~\\ =\frac{2197\pi}{48} \\~\\ \approx 144 \quad \text{cubic meters}\)
