### Example Question #1 : How To Find The Diameter Of A Sphere

What is the diameter of a sphere with a volume of ?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

To find the diameter of a sphere we must use the equation for the volume of a sphere to find the radius which is half of the diameter.

The equation is

First we enter the volume into the equation yielding

We then divide each side by to get

We then multiply each side by to get

We then take the cubic root of each side to solve for the radius

The radius is

We then multiply the radius by 2 to find the diameter

The answer for the diameter is .

### Example Question #2 : How To Find The Diameter Of A Sphere

The volume of a sphere is . What is the diameter?

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

To find the diameter of the sphere, we need to find the radius.

The volume of a sphere is .

Plug in our given values.

Notice that the 's cancel out.

The diameter is twice the radius, so .
