Visualisation of Integration by Shell Method
- Ivan Feng
This is a project done by me as my Mathematics teacher requested if there can be a software to visualise the volume integration. How to: 1) Input a function to f(x). 2) Right click on the range function, 3) Select "Object Properties" from the drop down. 4) Input your desired "Min" and "Max" to serve as your lower and upper bound respectively. 5) Make sure that increment is small. You can understand that as your dx. 6) Now you can close the Object Properties panel. 7) Right click on the function below "Cylinder" and make sure "Show Trace" is selected. 8) Left click on the range and there should be a play icon to visualise the process of integration.
