(In reply to Question about the givens by Larry)

To address your questions:

  • The radius r refers to the radius of the spherical solid.
  • The round hole is drilled all the way through the sphere.
  • The resulting round hole is a perfect cylinder of unknown radius (no larger than the radius of the original spherical solid), and of height 4cm.
I am not giving any information that is not already in the problem.
