# Prove that the surface area of a sphere is equal to curved surface area of the circumscribed cylinder.

To Prove: surface area of sphere = curved surface area of the circumscribed cylinder

Formula Used:

The curved surface area of cylinder = 2πrh

The surface area of sphere = 4πr2

Explanation:

CSA of sphere = 4πr2

The height of cylinder = Diameter of sphere

= 2×r

= 2r units

Curved surface area of cylinder = 2πr(2r)

= 4πr2

Hence proved
