represents a unit sphere centered at the point p.

represents a sphere of radius r centered at the point p.

represents a collection of spheres of radius r.


  • Sphere can be used as a geometric region and a graphics primitive.
  • Sphere[] is equivalent to Sphere[{0,0,0}]. »
  • Sphere[n] for positive integer n is equivalent to Sphere[{0,,0}], a unit sphere in .
  • Sphere represents the shell {x|TemplateBox[{{x, -, p}}, Norm]=r}.
  • Sphere can be used in Graphics and Graphics3D.
  • In graphics, the points p, and radii r can be Scaled and Dynamic expressions.
  • Graphics rendering is affected by directives such as FaceForm, Specularity, Opacity, and color.
  • Sphere[{p1,p2,},{r1,r2,}] represents a collection of spheres with centers and radii .
