How would I find the diameter if I only have the circumference?

And I think the formula for surface area, i need the one for a sphere. Is that

thanks for the help :]

you have the right formulas.

If you have the circumference of the ball, then, if you consider a cross-section of the ball, you are looking at the circumference of a circle.

so, if for example the circumference is 65 cm, then

65 = 2pi*r

r=65/(2pi)

r= 10.3

once you have the radius, just plug it into the volume and surface area formulas, I am sure you know what to do.
