My professor gave me this one.
MAT 1740 – Assignment #1 Name:
Due: 9/22 at the beginning of class. Remember to include all details as listed in the “How To” worksheet for application problems for full credit.
1. Find the exact volume of the solid formed by revolving the region bounded by x = 0, , and y = 0 about the x-axis using
a) a vertical representative element (analytically).
