The volume of soccer ball is
V(soccer)=4/3πr3
diameter of ball s 1.1 times therefore the volume of the basketball is
V(basketball)=4/3π(1.1r)3
V(basketball)=4/3π1.331r3
V(basketball)=1.331V(soccer)
since the diameter of tennis ball is about 0.3 times that of a scoccer ball it's radius is also 0.3 times
V(tennis)=4/3π(0.3r)3
V(tennis)=4/3π0.027r3
V(tennis)=0.027(soccer)
