Surface Area of Sphere and Hemisphere
Here we will discuss surface area of sphere and hemisphere
Sphere is nothing but a any type of ball. As it is in circular shape so it has diameter and radius.
Diameter : A line segment through the center of a sphere and with the end points on its boundary is called its diameter.
OP is the radius of the sphere.
Section of a spherical shape by a plane is called the Hemisphere.

Some solved examples on surface area of sphere - hemisphere
| Sphere :
Surface area (TSA) = CSA = 4πr2
Curved surface area(CSA) = 2 π r2
Total surface area = TSA = 3 π r2
1) The radius of hemispherical balloon increase from 7 cm to 14 cm as air is being pumped into it. Find the ratios of the surface areas of the balloon in two cases.
For 1st hemisphere,
r = 7 cm
TSA -1 = 3 π r2
⇒ = 3 x π x 72
| TSA-1 3 π x 72 1
-------- = --------- = ----
TSA -2 3π x 142 4
= 1 : 4
2) Show that the surface area of sphere is same as that of the lateral surface area of a cylinder that just encloses the sphere.
Total surface area of sphere = 4 π r2
The radius and height of the cylinder that just encloses the sphere of radius r and 2r respectively.
∴ CSA of cylinder = 2 π r h
⇒ = 2 π r x 2r
∴ CSA of cylinder = 4 π r2
∴ From (1) and (2)
Surface area of sphere is same as that of the lateral surface area of a cylinder that just encloses the sphere.
