Cube in a sphere

The cube is inscribed in a sphere with volume 7253 cm3. Determine the length of the edges of a cube.

Result

a =  13.9 cm

Solution:

$V=7253 \ \text{cm}^3 \ \\ V=\dfrac{ 4 }{ 3 } \pi r^3 \ \\ \ \\ r=\sqrt[3]{ \dfrac{ 3 \cdot \ V }{ 4 \pi } }=\sqrt[3]{ \dfrac{ 3 \cdot \ 7253 }{ 4 \cdot \ 3.1416 } } \doteq 12.0082 \ \text{cm} \ \\ \ \\ D=2 \cdot \ r=2 \cdot \ 12.0082 \doteq 24.0163 \ \text{cm} \ \\ \ \\ u=D=24.0163 \doteq 24.0163 \ \text{cm} \ \\ \ \\ u=\sqrt{ 3 } a \ \\ \ \\ a=u/\sqrt{ 3 }=24.0163/\sqrt{ 3 } \doteq 13.8658 \doteq 13.9 \ \text{cm}$
