Q:

# What shape is a sphere?

A:

### Quick Answer

A sphere is a round-shaped object in three-dimensional space. All points on a sphere's surface are the same distance from its center point. Some examples of a sphere are a globe, marble, soccer ball and basketball.

### Full Answer

In geometry, two important formulas relating to a sphere are how to find its volume and its surface area. Theses formulas are: volume = (4/3) × pi x r^3 and surfaces area = 4 x pi x r^2, where "r" refers to the radius and "pi" is approximated as 3.14.

A sphere is a geometrical object that is also perfectly symmetrical about its center. The distance from a sphere’s center to its surface is called the radius. A sphere does not have any vertices

Find the volume of a sphere by solving for the equation V=4/3*pi*r^3, where V is volume, r stands for radius and pi is 3.1459. Cube the radius, and multiply that number by pi and 4/3 for the volume. Pi delineates the relationship between a circle's diameter and circumference.
