. Arc Length. Surface Area. Disk. Washer. Long ago, these four calculus topics lived in harmony. Then everything changed when the AP Exam attacked. Only the Calcatar, master of all four topics, could stop it, but when the class needed him the most, he vanished. A school year has passed and my friend and I have discovered the new Calcatar, you. And although your calc - bending skills are great, you have a lot to learn before you can ace the test. But we believe you can get the 5 …. 2

Archimedes (287 BC – 212 BC) Real World Application The measurement of volume is necessary in every aspect of life, but standard volume equations only encompass standard shapes- spheres, cubes, pyramids, etc. Volume of solid revolution allows mathematicians to find the volume of obscure objects using equations and actual measurements. This technique is extended with the “washer method”- an equation used to find the volume of a solid with a portion cut out of the center. Moreover, the arc length equation allows for the ability to find the length, and ultimately the surface area- of a complex curve and shape within certain bounds which is useful in real life to find the length and surface area of an object too big for physical measurement- such as a planet. 4 Eureka! Born in Syracuse, Sicily, then a Greek city- state, Archimedes was not only an inventor of many important devices including the water screw for raising water to irrigate the fields, but he was also an important figure in the world of mathematics throughout his life. Probably most famous for discovering mass displacement with water in a bathtub, Archimedes has had many other great accomplishments in mathematics. Although his method to find the volume of a curve revolved around an axis- originally called “Method of Exhaustion”- is now outdated, its great effects on integral calculus are still evident today.

Analytical Example: Disk Method *Requires a Graphing Calculator Aang uses disc-like airbending! 9

The region enclosed by the graph of and the line x=4, and the x-axis is revolved about the x=0. The volume generated is The radiuses in this case would be R(x)= 04 r(x)= 0 Since the region is being revolved about the y-axis, the equation must be in terms of y. So, At x=4, y=16 since.Therefore the bounds are from 0 to 16. The integral is General form Integrate Plug in for radius Analytical Example: Washer Method 10

Analytical Example: Arc Length *Requires a Graphing Calculator Find the arc length offrom x=0 to x=4. 1.General Form of Arc length: 2.Since y=f(x), then y’= f’(x). Find the derivative of y. 3.Plug into general form. The lower and upper bounds are 0 and 4. 4.Solve. Still don’t understand? Remain calm, unlike Katara! “I’m completely calm!” 11

Analytical Example: Surface Area *Requires a Graphing Calculator Find the surface area of from x=0 to x=4 revolved about the x-axis. 1.General Form of Surface Area: 2.Since y=f(x), then y’= f’(x). Find the derivative of y. 3.Plug into general form. The left and right bounds are 0 and Now Katara starts to get it! =

AP Level Multiple Choice What is the length of the arc of from x=0 to x=3? (A) (B)7.341 (C)20.25 (D) (E) General Form Since f(x)=, then f’(x) is the derivative of y. Take the Derivative Plug into the general form. The upper bound is 3 and the lower bound is 0 You must solve the problem in order to defeat Azula. The answers are on the next slide but you better solve it right or feel her wrath! 13

14 AP Level Multiple Choice What is the length of the arc of from x=0 to x=3? (A) (B)7.341 (C)20.25 (D) (E) General Form Since f(x)=, then f’(x) is the derivative of y. Take the Derivative Plug into the general form. The upper bound is 3 and the lower bound is 0 Since this is the calculator section, you can plug the equation into your graphing calculate and you will get the answer Therefore the correct answer is D. If you forgot to square x 3 you will get If you didn’t take the derivative and plugged in for f’(x) then you will get If you forgot to use add one under the square root you get
