the pretty perfume company designed a new perfume bottle. The bottle is to be a spherical shape with a diameter of 7cm.

a) determine the volume and surface area of this bottle.

b) The spherical bottle has a conical shaped lid with a diameter of 5cm and a height of 4.5cm. Calculate the volume and surface area of the lid. Before you can use the surface area formula for a cone you will need to find the slant height of the lid.

Please show your work so I can understand how to do it.

So your bottle has a radius of 3.5 cm

volume of sphere = (4/3)π r^3

surface area = 4π r^2

sub in r = 3.5 into both equations.

b) the surface area of a cone, without its base, is

πrs, where s is the slant height, and r is the radius.

we have to first calculate s by

s^2 = 2.5^2 + 4.5^2

s = √26.5

so surface area = π(2.5)(√26.5))

= ....
