The Volume of a sphere is [4/3] X [Pi] X [radius]^3 , and is expressed
in cubic units.
from: [ ]

Pi is a constant approximately equal to 3.1415 (rounded to a value
that is more than sufficient for this answer.)

So your sphere of radius 3 meters would have a volume of
[4/3]x[3.1415]x[27] = 113.09 cubic feet.

Hope this matches your answer...

Why not use a value of Pi that's 9 times closer to the exact value,
but with the same number of digits?  3.1416!
