&gt; How do i find the volume of a shpere when the raduis is 4 inches and a
&gt; diameter is 6 inches????????????
&gt;

a sphere is a perfectly symmetrical object. just like a circle, the radius
is equal to one half the diameter. If you are truly talking about a sphere,
then the conditions you mention are impossible. but to get the volume of a
sphere the formula is 4/3 pi r^3.
