the formula for the volume of a sphere is (4/3)pie r^3

So, (4/3) * 3.14 * r^3

to find the radius, divide the diameter by 2, so it has a readius of 5 ft

Now, plug in the numbers to the formula and solve. That is the answer for the volume of that sphere. NOW, you want to know what it is when 1/2 full, so just divide by 2 to get your answer for this problem

P.S. - remember order of operatins when solving! :)
