The volume of a sphere is calculated through the formula Volume= 4/3*(pi)(r cubed). The diameter of a ping-pong ball is 1.5 inches, which equates to 1.5*1.5*1.5= about 4 cubic inches. There is 12*12*12 cubic inches in a cubic foot, or about 1,750 cubic inches in a cubic foot. 4/1,750= 0.0022857 cubic feet.
Likewise, what is the size of a golf ball?
The United States Golf Association specifies that a golf ball must weigh no more than 1.620 ounces (45.93g), be spherical in shape and be no less than 1.68-inches (42.7mm) in diameter. This is called "The American Ball". The "British Ball" is a teensy bit smaller, at 1.62-inches (41.1mm).
What is the volume of a golf ball?
That means 960 cubic feet and since there are 1728 cubic inches in a cubit foot, that means about 1.6 million cubic inches. I calculate the volume of a golf ball to be about 2.5 cubic inches (4/3 * pi * .85) as .85 inches is the radius of a golf ball.
What is the density of a golf ball?
The ball should float between the water, with a density of 1.00 g/ml, and the glycerin, with a density of 1.26 g/ml. The golf ball is more dense than the water and less dense than the glycerin.
