A plane and a sphere intersect in a circle that has an area of $48 \pi$. The distance between the plane and the center of the sphere is $3$ units. Find the surface area of the sphere.

The surface area of the sphere based on the information will be 2304π.

How to calculate the area?

It should be noted that the radius of the circle will be 1/2 the length of the line. Therefore, the radius in the shape will be:
