14 : C Program to Calculate Volume of Sphere

Check out the complete list of c-programs : C Program List    

To calculate the volume of Sphere you need to ask user to enter radius of sphere. PI value is needed to calculate the volume.

Variables :

1. radius : (Datatype int) : to represent the radius of Sphere.

2. PI : (Datatype float) : static variable to represent constant PI value upto 3 decimal places i.e 3.142

3. volume_of_sphere : (Datatype float) : to store volume of Sphere calculated.

Functions :

printf() : is used to display something on the console/screen. Format specifier %d in printf function is used to display a int variable on screen and %f for float. \n is used to add a newline

scanf() : is used to fetch data inputted by the user on the console/screen using keyboard. %d in scanf is indicates that inputted text is of type int and %f for float.

Formula :

Volume of a Sphere : (4/3) x π x r3

	printf("\n\n Enter the Radius of Sphere : ");
	scanf("%d", &radius);
    volume_of_sphere = (4/3)*(PI*radius*radius*radius);

	printf("\n\n Volume of Sphere with Radius as %d = %f",radius,volume_of_sphere);

//	getch();
