# 13-3 Volume of Sphere &

## 13-4 Congruent and Similar Solids

Surface Area of a Sphere:
4πr2
Volume of a Pyramid =
(1/3)(h)(area of base)
The height
of the pyramid
is like the
the Sphere!
VOLUME OF SPHERE =
(Surface Area of Sphere)(Volume of Infinite
Pyramids with infinitely small bases)

V = (4πr2)(1/3)(h)

=(4πr2)(1/3)(r)

V = (4/3)πr3

SCALE FACTOR of Areas 1 : 4
If two solids have a scale factor of
a:b
based on their lengths…

ratio
a2 : b2

## And their Volumes are related by the ratio

a3 : b 3
EXAMPLE:
• What is the “Scale Factor” of the two
similar cubes?

14

63
SCALE FACTOR = 63 / 14
= 9 / 2
• What is the ratio of the surface areas of
the two similar cubes?
SCALE FACTOR = 9 / 2

14

63
Ratio of Surface Areas = a2 / b2
= 92 / 22
= 81 / 4
• What is the ratio of the volumes of the
two similar cubes? SCALE FACTOR = a/b = 9 / 2
Ratio of Surface Areas = a2/b2 = 81 / 4

14

63
Ratio of VOLUMES = a3 / b3
= 93 / 2 3
= 729 / 8
