Use Great Circles to Find Surface Area
B. Find the surface area of a sphere if the
circumference of the great circle is 10 feet.
First, find the radius. The circumference of a great
circle is 2r. So, 2r = 10 or r = 5.
Use Great Circles to Find Surface Area
S = 4r2

ARCHEOLOGY The stone spheres of Costa Rica
were made by forming granodiorite boulders into
spheres. One of the stone spheres has a volume of
about 36,000 cubic inches. What is the diameter
of the stone sphere?
Understand You know that the volume of the stone
is 36,000 cubic inches.
Plan
First use the volume formula to find the
radius. Then find the diameter.
