Unformatted text preview: π r. Therefore, the radius of the moon is r = l/(2 π ) = 1.73 × 10 6 m = 1.73 × 10 6 m × (1 km/1000 m) = 1.73 × 10 3 km The surface area of the moon is A = 4 π r 2 = 3.76 × 10 7 km 2 b) What is its volume in cubic miles? (1 mile = 1.609 km) First we express the radius of the moon in miles: r = 1.73 × 10 3 km = = 1.73 × 10 3 km × (1 mi/1.609 km) = 1.08× 10 3 mi The volume of the moon is V = (4/3) π r 3 = 5.28 × 10 9 mi 3...
