Sphere Volume Changes
TEKS 8.10b Describe the resulting effects on volume when the dimensions of a solid are changed proportionally.Your task is to:
 Record the length of the radius of the sphere shown in each problem on
 Calculate the volume of the sphere given and record on your answer
document.
 Calculate the new volume of the sphere after the increase or decrease and
 Find the ratio of the two volumes by dividing the volume of the new sphere
by the volume of the original sphere. (ROUND TO THE NEAREST WHOLE
NUMBER!!)
 For Number 3, your answer will be a decimal convert this to fraction.
 There is a relationship between the volume of the original sphere, the scale
factor applied and the volume of the new sphere. Try to see if you can
figure out what that relationship is; answer the questions at the end of the
Sphere 1.
A. The length of the radius of the sphere shown is 5 inches. Record on the
answer document. Calculate the volume and record.
B. Double the length of the radius of the sphere and record the new radius on
