Calculator for Sphere Volume

Alternative name: Ball volume calculator

This calculator will help you find the volume of a sphere. The formula used in this calculator is listed below.

To use this calculator, you will need to know the radius.

To give you a better mental model of the sphere, you can look at the visualization below. You can navigate the 3d-model of the sphere as you like.


Volume = 4,188.79

Sphere Volume Formula

Formula variable explanation:

  • S represents the volume.
  • r represents the Radius.

LaTeX formula

If you are working in a TeX based editor you could use this TeX formula to calculate the sphere volume.

\mathrm{S}=\frac{4}{3}\cdot\pi\cdot{ r}^{3}

How To Calculate The Sphere Volume Your Self

Calculating the volume is rather simple when you know the formula presented above. Follow these steps:

  1. Write down this formula:

  2. Then change the following variables with your values:
    1. r shall be changed with the Radius of your sphere. As an example r could be changed to 10.
  3. Now you can enter this in to your calculator and you will get your answer.

Sphere Characteristics

The following are properties of a sphere:

  • A sphere is a three-dimensional shape.
  • A sphere has the same curvature across its surface. Meaning the radius to the center of the sphere is always the same.
  • It has no edges or vertecies.
  • Spheres are symmetrical in all directions
  • The sphere have the largest volume when compared to other shapes with the same surface area.
  • The english word sphere comes from the greek word σφαῖρα—sphaira, meaning globe or ball.
