MATH 2B - Lecture 9 - Volume of Solids
Consider a general cylinder:
To calculate the volume of this general solid, we cut it into many slices vertically.
In general, for the ith slice, we use a short cylinder to approximate its volume.

Again, we assume each slice has the same height We use the area at the
sample point as the base.

Then we add them together to obtain the
approximation for the whole solid.

Subscribers Only Find the volume obtained by rotating the region bounded by y=1, on [1,3] around
x-axis.
Solution:
By rotating the rectangular region, we obtain a cylinder.
Now we try to write down the definite integral for its volume:
1. Treat x as variable (since it’s rotating around the x-axis)
2. Cut the solid vertically, and find the area of intersecting plane A(x) as a
function of x.
Cutting area is a circle with a constant radius r=1 → A(x) = πr² = π
3. Set up the integral

Compute the volume obtained by rotating the region s with x-axis which is
bounded by f(x)=x² on [0,1].
