$$\color{blue}V_{zyl}=\pi r^2h\\ h=\frac{V_{zyl}}{\pi r^2}=\frac{60\ cm^3}{\pi \cdot 2^2\ cm^2}$$

$$h=\frac{15\ cm}{\pi}$$

$$R^2=(\frac{h}{2})^2+r^2=\frac{225\ cm^2}{\pi ^2}+2^2\ cm^2\\ R^2 =26.797\ cm^2\\ \color{blue} R=5.1766\ cm$$

$$V_{sphere}=\frac{4}{3}\pi \cdot R^3=\frac{4}{3}\pi \cdot 5.1766^3\ cm^3$$

$$V_{sphere}=581.065\ cm^3$$
