### What was Archimedes discovery about sphere and cylinder?

He discovered the relationship between a sphere and a
circumscribed cylinder of the same height and diameter. The volume
is 4⁄3πr3 for the sphere, and 2πr3 for the cylinder.
The surface area is 4πr2 for the sphere, and 6πr2 for
the cylinder (including its two bases), where r is the
radius of the sphere and cylinder. The sphere has a volume and
surface area two-thirds that of the cylinder. A sculpted sphere and
cylinder were placed on the tomb of Archimedes at his request.
