Problem 16P

Problem 16P

Derive a formula for the volume of a d-dimensional hypersphere.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 16P

The Gaussian function  has an antiderivative and if it is integrated from  to , its numerical value is found to be

So,

If the function is squared and double integration is done on it. The square is values as .

The expression for area of a d-dimensional hypersphere is given as,

The volume of segment that is  unit thick is given by,

Integrating this expression,

This is the formula for the volume of a d-dimensional hypersphere.
