# Circumsphere

A sphere circumscribed in a given solid. Its radius is called the circumradius. By analogy with the equation of the circumcircle, the equation for the circumsphere of the tetrahedron with polygon vertices for , ..., 4 is

 (1)

Expanding the determinant,

where

 (3)

is the determinant obtained from the matrix

 (4)

by discarding the column (and taking a plus sign) and similarly for (this time taking the minus sign) and (again taking the plus sign)

 (5) (6) (7)

and is given by

with circumcenter
