Volumes and Areas of Solids of Revolutions
In This Chapter
- Calculating volumes of solids using disks, washers, and shells
- Determining the distance from point A to point B
- Understanding areas of solids
We’ve dealt with a review of Calculus I and what happens in the xy-plane—limits, rates of change, and accumulation. Now we get to look at a few three-dimensional issues (the operative word being few). What happens when the region formed in a two-dimensional plane is rotated around a line in that plane? The result is a three-dimensional solid. In this chapter, we will explore the process of computing the volume and surface area for these ...
