Relation of Radius, Surface Area, and Volume of a Sphere

Imagine that you are blowing up a spherical balloon at the rate of 1 cm3/s. How do the radius and surface area of the balloon change with its volume? We can find the answer using the formulas for the surface area and volume for a sphere in terms of its radius.
