A volume of revolution 2008-04-24
Sabahat pose la question :
Hi, i have a region enclosed by both axes, the line x=2 and the curve y=1/8 x2 + 2 is rotated about the y-axis to form a solid . How can i find the volume of this solid?. (Please note that y equation is read as y =1 over 8 times x square plus 2.) I will be really grateful if you answer this question. :)

A volume of revolution 2006-06-07
Colleen pose la question :
Find the exact volume in cubic units generated by rotating a region, R, around the
y-axis, given that R is the region bounded by the curve y = x3 and the lines x = 1 and
y = 8.

A sphere with a hole - cylindrical shells 2002-12-11
Kathy pose la question :
Suppose you make napkin rings by drilling holes with different diameters through two wooden balls (which also have different diameters.) You discover that both napkin rings have the same height, h.
  1. Guess which ring has more wood in it and why.
  2. Check you guess: Use cylindrical shells to compute the volume of a napkin ring created by drilling a hole with radius r through the center of a sphere of radius R and express the answer in terms of h.

Catenary 2002-01-02
Jason pose la question :
I am a high school math teacher. I was asked by a friend who is in architectural design for a method for determining the volume of what he called a Catenary.

The Catenary curve is modeled by the equation y=a cosh(x/a). I ran into a mess when I tried to compute the volume of the solid formed by revolving that curve around the y-axis.

Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
