Modifiable Solid: Isosceles Right Triangle Cross Sections Parallel to yAxis (VA)


Enter any UPPER FUNCTION (labeled upper(x)). Enter any LOWER FUNCTION (labeled lower(x)). Enter your lower and upper limits of integration ("a" and "b", respectively). Slide the FILLING slider all the way to the left. For this solid, note how cross sections parallel to the yAxis are isosceles right triangles with one of its legs lying in the base. This leg has length = upper(x) - lower(x). You can move this isosceles right triangle by sliding the MoveMe slider. You can modify any of these parameters (functions, limits) at any time. To explore in augmented reality, see the directions below this applet.


1) Open up GeoGebra 3D app on your device. 2) Go to the MENU (horizontal bars) in the upper left corner. Select OPEN. In the Search GeoGebra Resources input box, type jjx7ycbj (Note this is the resource ID = last 8 digits of the URL for this resource.) 3) In the resource that uploads, zoom in/out if needed.  You can alter the functions upper(x), lower(x). You can also move sliders a, b, MoveMe, and Filling. (Simply leave any other objects you see alone.)
