Find the volume of the solid obtained by rotating the area enclosed by and
around the x-axis.
Foundations |
---|
Choose either shell or washer method. |
Find the appropriate radii. |
Determine the bounds of integration by finding when both functions have the same y value. |
Using the determined values, set up and solve the integral. |
Solution:
Step 1: |
---|
Since we are rotating around the x-axis, the washer method would utilize tall rectangles with dx as their width. This seems like a reasonable choice, as these rectangles would be trapped between our two functions, allowing us to solve a single integral. |
Step 2: |
---|
Since our rectangles will be trapped between the two functions, and will be rotated around the x-axis (where ,) we find |
the inner radius is , represented by the blue line, while |
the outer radius is , represented by the red line. |
Step 3: |
---|
We must set the two functions equal, and solve. More to follow... |
