Geometry Worksheets - Surface of Sphere

Objective: I know how to calculate the surface area of a sphere.


The surface area of a sphere is given by the formula:

V = 4πr2

If you are given the diameter, remember to first divide the diameter by 2 to get the radius before using the formula.

Read this lesson on the surface area of spheres if you need additional help.
