3. Sphere
 Sphere – is the locus of points in space that are
a given distance from a point. The point is
called the “center of the sphere”.
 Radius – a segment from the center to a point
on the sphere.
 Chord of a sphere – a segment whose
endpoints are on the sphere
 Diameter – a chord that contains the center

5. Example 1A
 Find
the volume of the sphere. Give your
answers in terms of π.
d = 24 in
6. Example 1B
 Findthe diameter of a sphere with volume
36,000π cm³
7. More Definitions
 Ifa plane intersects a sphere and contains
the center, then the intersection is called a
great circle. Every great circle of a
sphere separates a sphere into two
congruent halves called hemispheres.
