Volume of Sphere (shells and slabs)

Displayed below are two familiar methods of determining volumes of solids, this time as applied to the sphere. It is beneficial to compare two (or more) methods of determining volumes of a given solid; this allows students to develop a deeper understanding of each process that might not otherwise occur if kept in isolation from one another. It is also beneficial to compare directly each method as applied to different shapes. I’m including a link to volume of cones here for that purpose.
