How Do You Find the Volume of a Sphere?
The formula for the volume of a sphere is volume equals four-thirds pi times the radius cubed. That's a mouth-full. But if you are given the radius value of the sphere, all you have to do is plug it in and do the arithmetic. Just remember to use the order of operations.

Density Studies of the Earth
Density comes to life as investigators place soda cans into containers of various liquids to find if they sink or float. They layer different density liquids, compare densities of different gases, and more. A total of six different density exercises help earth science learners grasp how differing density drives the motion of Earth's magma, oceans, and atmosphere.
