## Ratio of Volume of Cube Inside a Sphere Inside a Cube

Suppose a cube is placed inside a sphere so that the vertices of the cube just touch the sphere. The sphere is placed inside a cube so the sphere just touches the centre of each face of the cube.

$2x$

the its volume is
$(2x)^3=8x^3$
.
The distance from the centre of the innermost cube to a vertex of the cube is equal to the radius of the circle and is
$\sqrt{x^2+x^2+x^2} = x \sqrt{3}$
.
The side of the large cube is twice the radius of the sphere, and is equal to
$2x \sqrt{3}$

Then
$\frac{Volume \: of \: Large \: Cube}{Volume \: of \: Small \: Cube}= \frac{(2x \sqrt{3})^3}{8x^3} = 3 \sqrt{3}$
