A ball of diameter 20 cm fits exactly inside a cylindrical container.
The maximum volume of liquid which can be poured into the cylindrical container when empty is ________ cm3.
[π=3.14]

you know the cylinder also has a diameter of 20 cm.
It also has a height of 20 cm, so the sphere just fits.
v = pi r^2 h = pi (2/2)^2 (20) = 2000pi
