How do i work out the radius of a sphere by knowing its surface area

in this case the surface area is 4536.46

Aug 5th, 2015

surface area=4 x pie x r^2

4 x pie x r^2=4536.46, divide everything by (4x3.14), and get;

r^2=361.183, then get the square root of this number

thanks how about if it was a cone and i needed to find the slant height and the height using the surface area which is 320.44 m^2 and a base radius of 6m

welcome. Ok, that is very simple. Am giving the solution in a minute.

surface area of a cone=[pie x r+(sqrth^2+r^2)]

320.44/(3.14x6)=6+sqrt(h^2 + 36)

121=h^2+36

h=9.22m

so using the right angled triangle identity, we get the slant height=11m
