Solids of Revolution
- Lee Stemkoski
- To graph a particular solid of revolution (around the x-axis), enter an equation in the input bar.
- The surface may be rotated using a mouse -- right-click and drag.
- The green slider controls the green curve, which shows how the surface is generated, by rotating the curve around the x-axis.
- The purple slides controls the purple curve, which shows the circular cross-sections along the length of the surface.
