Solids of Revolution!
- Tim Brzezinski
This applet dynamically illustrates the formation of a solid of revolution by rotating a region bounded by = upper function = lower function = lower limit of integration = upper limit of integration about ANY HORIZONTAL LINE (ranging from to ) or ANY VERTICAL LINE (ranging from to ). Simply input your upper function , your lower function , and your lower and upper limits of integration. Choose your options, and watch what happens. Note: You can also change a and b values by moving the pink and blue points (respectively) on the x-axis. You can also change the axis of rotation by moving the purple point on its respective axis.
