Python Math: Calculate surface volume and area of a sphere

Python Math: Exercise-6 with Solution

Write a Python program to calculate surface volume and area of a sphere.
Note: A sphere is a perfectly round geometrical object in three-dimensional space that is the surface of a completely round ball.

Python: Surface volume and area of a sphere

A sphere is a perfectly round geometrical object in three-dimensional space that is the surface of a completely round ball.

In three dimensions, the volume inside a sphere is derived to be V = 4/3*π*r3 where r is the radius of the sphere

Python: Volume of a sphere

The  area of a sphere is A = 4*π*r2

Python: Area of a sphere

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

pi=22/7
radian = float(input('Radius of sphere: '))
sur_area = 4 * pi * radian **2
volume = (4/3) * (pi * radian ** 3)
print("Surface Area is: ", sur_area)
print("Volume is: ", volume)

Sample Output:

Radius of sphere: .75                                                                                         
Surface Area is:  7.071428571428571                                                                           
Volume is:  1.7678571428571428

Python: Get the Key Whose Value Is Maximal in a Dictionary

>>> model_scores = {'model_a': 100, 'model_z': 198, 'model_t': 150}
>>> # workaround
>>> keys, values = list(model_scores.keys()), list(model_scores.values())
>>> keys[values.index(max(values))]
'model_z'
>>> # one-line
>>> max(model_scores, key=model_scores.get)
'model_z'
