August 29, 2021 | education

| The area of the sphere is:

Ssph = 4 * π * R ^ 2 units 2.

The area of the base of the cylinder is a circle, then its area is:

Sop = π * R ^ 2 units 2.

Since the sphere is inscribed in a circular cylinder, the radius of the base of the cylinder is equal to the radius of the inscribed sphere.

Then Sсф = 4 * (π * R ^ 2) = 4 * Sсн = 4 * 24 = 96 units 2.

Answer: The area of the sphere is 96 units2.
