General Equations Where f(x) or f(y) are the upper / right function, and g(x) or g(y) are the lower / left function. REMEMBER: if an axis is involved, then substitute 0 (zero) for the appropriate function.
Example 1 Find the area enclosed by... The graph f(x) = x², the x-axis, and the lines x = 1 and x = 2.
The disk method should be used when the region to be revolved touches the line of revolution completely (i.e. the line acts as one of the bounding functions), and the line of revolution is in the same variable of the bounding function (e.g. a y = function is revolved around a y = line).
Disk Example Find the volume of the area bounded by... The graph and the lines x = 0 and x = 4 … revolved around the x-axis.
Technique 2: Washer Method Where function f is the outer function when revolving and function g is the inner function.
Technique 2: Washer Method The washer method should be used when the region to be revolved does not completely touch the line of revolution, and the line of revolution is in the same variable as the region's bounding functions.
Washer Example Find the volume of the region enclosed by... The graphs f(x) = sin(x) and g(x) = cos(x)...rotated around the x-axis.
Modification 1: Non-Axial Revolution When rotating a region around a line that is not an axis, then the region's bounding functions must be shifted so that the line coincides with the appropriate axis.
Non-Axial Revolution Example 1 Find the volume of the region enclosed by... The graph f(x) = x² and lines y = 0, x = −1, and x = 1....revolved around the line y = −1.
Modification 2: Cross-Sections When a region is described as a side of a solid whose cross-sections are a certain shape, then the volume of the solid is equal to the integral of the area of the cross-section.
Cross Section Example The region bounded by... The graph f(x) = x² and the lines y = 0 and x = 4...is a face of a solid, whose cross-sections perpendicular to the x-axis are squares. Find the volume of the solid.
