NCERT Solutions For Class 9 Math | Exercise 13.4

Chapter 13: Surface Areas & Volumes | Surface Area of Sphere | Hemisphere

Exercise 13.4 of class 9 NCERT math text books comprises 9 questions. This exercise focuses on curved surface area of sphere, curved surface area of hemisphere and total surface area of hemisphere.

How to find the Surface Area of Sphere? What is the formula for Surface Area of Sphere?

The formula to compute the curved surface area of sphere is 4πr2, where 'r' is the radius of the sphere.


What is the formula for Curved Surface Area of Hemisphere? What is the formula for Total Surface Area of Hemisphere?

The formula to compute the curved surface area of hemisphere (CSA of hemisphere) is 2πr2, where 'r' is the radius of the hemisphere.

The formula to compute the total surface area of hemisphere (TSA of hemisphere) is 3πr2, where 'r' is the radius of the hemisphere.

The total surface area of hemisphere is the sum of the curved surface area of hemisphere and the area of the circular base of the hemisphere.
