Diameter of a Sphere, Given Its Volume

Would any one know how to calculate the diameter of a sphere, given its volume?
For instance, if you had a sphere containing 5000ccs of water, how could you figure out what its diameter is?
Thanks, Cris Helmare

You'd use this formula here:
diameter = 2 * (volume * 3/4 * 1/Pi)[sup]1/3[/sup]
In your case, a (full) sphere with a volume of 5000 cubic centimeters has a diameter of 21.215688 centimeters.

Thanks very much, unfortunately, I'm not used to raising anything to a fractional power.
I can multiply my volume by threequarters and divide that by pi. But I get stuck at that point and can't duplicate your result.

Nevermind.
Cubed root... Got it.
Thanks again!
