# A ball has a radius of 1 foot. What is the surface area of the ball?

**Solution:**

The total area occupied by the surfaces of an object is called its surface area.

The surface area is classified into two categories:

Curved surface area or Lateral surface area

Total surface area

Given, radius of ball = 1 foot

We have to find the surface area of the ball.

The surface area of the ball is given by

A = 4𝜋r^{2}

Where r is the radius

So, A = 4𝜋(1)^{2}

A = 4𝜋

Use 𝜋 = 3.14

A = 4(3.14)

A = 12.56 square feet.

Therefore, the surface area of the ball is 12.56 square feet.

## A ball has a radius of 1 foot. What is the surface area of the ball?

**Summary:**

A ball has a radius of 1 foot. The surface area of the ball is 12.56 square feet.
