A sphere is a perfectly symmetrical three-dimensional object that is defined as the set of all points in space that are equidistant from a given point, known as the center. It is a fundamental shape in geometry and has numerous applications in various fields such as mathematics, physics, and engineering.

Spheres are ubiquitous in our daily lives, from sports balls like basketballs and soccer balls to various fruits like apples and oranges. Other real-life examples include celestial bodies like planets, stars, and the sun. Bubbles, marbles, and some jewelry pieces like beads and pearls are also shaped like spheres.

Easily calculate the volume of a sphere with step-by-step guidance using our free calculator below.

The formula for determining the volume of a sphere is defined as:
$$V$$ $$=$$ $$\dfrac{4}{3}$$ $$\cdot$$ $$\pi$$ $$\cdot$$ $$r^3$$
$$V$$: the volume of the sphere
$$r$$: the radius of the sphere
$$\pi$$: A mathematical constant with an infinite decimal tail
The SI unit of volume is: $$cubic \text{ } meter\text{ }(m^3)$$

## Find $$V$$

Use this calculator to determine the volume of a sphere when the length of its radius is given.
