Best Answer

There is no equation for the "scale factor" of a sphere. If I assume you to mean how the volume increases with radius then you would use the volume equation for a sphere and calculate volume based on corresponding radii. You could then divide the resultant volumes to give a percentage or factor of how much larger or small one sphere is than another. You'll see that a small change in radius causes a large change in volume due to the volume being a cubic factor of the radius.

You increase the scale factor.

You calculate the scale factor if you do have a scale is by dividing if it is a small shape to a large shape and multiplying if it is a large shape to a small shape example: shape 1 sqaure shape 2 square equation 2 10 10/2=5 shape 2 square shape 2 square equation 10 2 2/10

The area scale factor is the square of the side length scale factor.

a product factor is an answer to an equation and the actual equation itself.

The equation of a sphere with radius r, centered at (x0 ,y0 ,z0 ) is (x-x0 )+(y-y0 )+(z-z0 )=r2

1 shape cannot have a scale factor. A scale factor is something (a factor) that relates one shape to another.

Scale factor and perimeter are related because if the scale factor is 2, then the perimeter will be doubled. So whatever the scale factor is, that is how many times the perimeter will be enlarged.
