Help. Can't even visualise the equations I need.

Sphere of radius r where r is greater than 2 has a circular hole drilled completely through so that the axis of the hole is a diameter of the sphere. The hole has length 4. Prove that the volume of the piece of the sphere which remains is independent of r

know y2 = r2 - x2

The question does not make sense

If the hole has length 4 and goes all the way through then the radius of the sphere would have to be 2

I am struggling with that, hence why I can't visualise the question. Its from the Neill Quadling text book for Core 3 and 4

Ok

Rotate 180 between -a and a

The only way I can incorporate the 4 is to have a = 2 which makes sense now I have drawn the graph

Then you need to remove the cylinder and ..... that must work - it is starting to - but I am off to bed

Not at all. If the sphere has radius R and the hole has radius r then the length of the hole will be

Problem solved once I realised that length of cylinder was not the same as the length of its central core. Thanks
