Watch to Learn about Spheres, Cones, and Cylinders
Watch the videos at the links below to learn about the relationships between the volume of spheres, cones and cylinders. After watching the videos, return to this page by using the back arrow.
Now, consider the volume of a basketball. To determine the volume, the value of the diameter is a useful measurement. Try to estimate the volume of the basketball using what you know about circles.
Check out the following video for further help on determining this volume. Return to this page by using the back arrow.
You should now have basic volume formulas developed for a cylinder, cone, rectangular prism, pyramid, and sphere. Record these formulas for future reference.
Summarize your understanding about which formulas are related and how they are related.
