Hemisphere Definition

The hemisphere is the half of a Sphere. In a different way, we can say that when a plane cuts a sphere at the center two hemispheres are formed.

Sphere and Hemisphere

Volume of Hemisphere

To calculate the volume of a hemisphere, we need to know its radius, which represents the distance from the center of the sphere to any point on its surface. 

Volume of Hemisphere

The easiest way to find the volume of the hemisphere is to get the hemisphere as part of the full sphere. 1st you can find the volume of the sphere.

Hemisphere is half of the sphere. Then you can divide the volume of the sphere by two.

Let’s add volume of sphere equation.

The final equation is look like below.

Applications of Hemispheres

Most of the time you can see hemisphere shapes with other geometries. However, knowing about hemispheres will help you to do different designs. Following are some examples of hemispheres.

  • Architectural Domes
  • Cooking Utensils
  • Geodesic Domes
  • Hemispherical Bowls

Really appreciate, taking the time to read the article about the Hemisphere.
