## Volume of Hemisphere - Sub Topics

• Properties of Hemisphere
• Volume of Hemisphere
• Formula for Volume of a Hemisphere
• A hemisphere shape is a three-dimensional shape that is half of a sphere with one side flat and the other side as a circular bowl.

## Properties of Hemisphere

1. A hemisphere has one circular base and one curved surface.
2. Hemisphere has no edges and no vertices.
3. The diameter of a hemisphere is a line segment that passes through the centre and joins the two opposite points on the base of the hemisphere.
4. The radius of a hemisphere is a line segment from the centre to a point on the curved surface of the hemisphere.

## Volume of Hemisphere

The volume of a hemisphere is the amount of space enclosed within a half-spherical shape.

Let us have a look at the formula of the volume of a hemisphere.

### Formula for Volume of a Hemisphere

The formula for the volume of a hemisphere is:

V = (2/3) x π x r3

where:
V is the volume of the hemisphere
π is approximately equal to 3.14
r is the radius of the hemisphere (half of the diameter)
