volume of a sphere having its diameter equal to the inner diameter of the shell from the volume of a sphere having its diameter equal to the outer diameter of the shell. We thus obtain the following rule. 175. To find the volume of a spherical shell. RULE. Subtract the cube of the inner diameter from the cube of the outer diameter, and multiply the remainder by 11. (To find the outer diameter, twice the thickness of the shell must be added to the inner diameter. To find the inner diameter, twice the thickness of the shell must be subtracted from the outer diameter. (Compare Art. 18).] Ex. The outer diameter of a spherical shell is 10.5 in., and the thickness of the shell is 2.1 in. Find its solidity. Here, the inner diameter will be 10.5 in.-4.2 in. = 6.3 in. The cube of 10.5 is 1157.625; the cube of 6.3 is 250.047 ; 1157.625_250.047=907.578. Hence, volume of shell= 31 x 907.578=475.398 c. in. Ex. LXXVI.
