COMMENTS

More generally, the ratio (surface)/(volume)^(2/3), characteristic of the shape of a bounded 3D body, which is invariant under linear scaling and known as the surface index. Its common value for all spheres is the smallest possible among all closed 3D bodies (for a cube, for example, it is exactly 6.0).
