The radius of a spherical balloon increases from 7 cm to 14 cm as air is being pumped into it. Find the ratio of surface areas of the balloon in the two cases

Answer :

Radius (r1) of spherical balloon = 7 cm

Radius (r2) of spherical balloon, when air is pumped into it = 14 cm

Ratio =


= ()2

= ()2 =

Therefore, the ratio between the surface areas is 1:4
