Content Around y-axisAround x-axisIntroduction

If a curve is rotated around either the x-axis or y-axis, a solid is formed. The volume of this solid is called the “Volume of revolution”. Around y-axisAround x-axisNextIntroduction

Find the following volumes of revolution: Around y-axisAround x-axisIntroductionNext

Conclusion You should now be able to: Visualise the effect of rotating a shape around the x and y axes. Compute the volume of revolution. Further reading: try looking up the equations needed rotate a shape around the x-axis, this will require knowledge of polar coordinates. Around y-axisAround x-axisNextIntroduction
