How do you derive formula for volume of a sphere?

If you're able to get around in Calculus, then that derivation is a nice exercise in triple integration with polar coordinates. If not, then you just have to accept the formula after others have derived it. Actually, the formula was known before calculus was invented/discovered. Archimedes used the method of exhaustion to find the formula.
