This article presents a very readable account of how to determine the volume of a hypersphere. In a given space a Sphere is defined as the set of points in the given space which are equidistant from a fixed point. Development proceeds from the one-dimensional space of a line, the two-dimensional plane, the three-space in which we live, and finally to a four dimensional hypersphere.
