# A Sphere and a Cube Have Equal Surface Areas. What is the Ratio of the Volume of the Sphere to that of the Cube? - Mathematics

A sphere and a cube have equal surface areas. What is the ratio of the volume of the sphere to that of the cube?

#### Solution

Surface area of sphere = sphere area of cube

i.e., 4πr2 = 6a2

r^2/a^2 = 6/(4pi)

r/a = (6/(4x))^(1/2)…… (i)

"Now" , "volume of sphere"/"volume of cube" = (4/3pir^3)/a^3

v_1 /v_2 = (4pir^3)/(3a^3)

=4/3 pi(r/a)(r/a)^2

=4/3 pisqrt(6/pi) 1/2 6/pi

v_1/ v_2 = sqrt(6/pi)

v_1 :v_2 = sqrt(6/pi)

Is there an error in this question or solution?
